Those of you who have kids and also love to listen to music by Snatam Kaur will probably love the two new products that Snatam is about to release. The first product is called "Shanti the Yogi – Mountain Adventure – Yoga, meditation & music for children"
In this beautifully filmed and illustrated DVD, Snatam Kaur takes children on a mountain adventure with Shanti the Yogi. They will have a positive experience of yoga, mantras in motion, music and play. As children enter Shanti’s world through the beautifully presented story-telling and illustration, they are also guided through yoga and movement by Snatam Kaur in a children’s yoga class setting. The joy-filled music that the children sing with Snatam Kaur was made specifically to accompany the yoga, story, and mantras in motion on this DVD.
Snatam Kaur spent years sharing her unique musical yoga story-telling with children around the world and has finally captured it on film for children to take home with them. This is a children’s yoga adventure that parents are sure to love too!"
Here is a video preview that you can watch, and should give you an idea about the DVD:
I haven’t yet seen the actual DVD, but did watch the video trailer which you can also watch below. I finally got to see a bit of what my son Narayan Singh did when he and some of his friends spent the whole day recording with Snatam. You’ll notice him right in the front row with his little turban/patka on.
As parents it’s great having more tools such as this to help our children learn and experience something different. Yoga and music are great ways for kids to explore their bodies and express themselves. Snatam Kaur has a unique way of doing this through Gurbani Mantras, Spiritual/Positive Songs and Yoga, which in combination I think will be a great benefit to any kid (no matter what your religion or background).
As you might have read in some of my previous blog posts, Snatam Kaur is pregnant with her first child, so I’m sure more than ever her mind is on CHILDREN. However in her tours she had a children’s component to many of her events to involve them as well.
In addition to the new DVD she also produced a brand new Audio CD for the kids as well! The CD is called "Feeling Good Today" which was used for the audio track (so I have heard) in the previously mentioned DVD. Many months ago we got a pre-pre-pre-release copy for Narayan Singh so he could listen to it and get familiar with it for the day when they did the video recording for the DVD product. Anyways, the kids should love it. Here is a description about the CD:
Feeling Good Today makes mantra and music fun for kids of all ages. Sing along with Snatam Kaur’s magical vocals as she leads a lively group of children through songs and mantras. Parents and children will love the universal messages and positive affirmations woven through this joyful music.
These songs have been sung around the world in Snatam Kaur’s children’s yoga workshops. Fulfilling years of fan requests, this recording specially for children is sure to be a favorite in the car, at home, or in class. Sing, dance, play and feel good today!"
