If you haven’t seen the first season of True and the Rainbow Kingdom, this preschool series follows 8-year-old True and her best friend, a cat, Bartleby, as they help the whimsical citizens of the Rainbow Kingdom, a really cool universe that is colorful, bright, and happy, filled with delightful and fantastical friends.

In the new season, True goes deeper and learns about the people and creatures living in the Rainbow Kingdom. True’s adventures show kids how to deal with the unexpected, be emotionally resilient and to care for others.  This Netflix series has a very positive vibe, True is happy and always looking to the best outcome!

Yoga Dog a new Children’s TV Show to Enrich Your Child’s Life

I don’t know about you, but I don’t really like a lot of the television programs that are directed toward young children right now.  I know they have come a long way from the shows WE used to watch, but as a pretty conservative parent, I am finding myself flipping the channel when certain shows come on ((Cough… cough… Spongebob)).  As a mom, the fact that these shows are directed toward my child’s age group ((OR ON THE AIR AT ALL)) just baffles me.  This is why when I learned about the possibility of Yoga Dog, I got VERY EXCITED ((YES!!  A children’s television program that will ENRICH my child and not waste his life away watching another mindless cartoon)).

A little about Yoga Dog:
Yoga Dog™ is a 22-minute children’s edutainment program which engages the imaginations, emotions, and mobility of 3-7 year olds. It follows the adventures of “Yoga Dog,” an innocent, fun-loving pup who discovers the imaginative world around him with the help of his friends. Together, they overcome challenges, learn more about themselves and others by interacting with others and exploring the exciting world around them.
When your child is watching Yoga Dog, he or she will be using their thinking skills to help Yoga Dog overcome challenges, getting active because he or she will be doing the yoga along with Yoga Dog and his friends, and learning self-control and coping mechanisms.
It is important to note that while Yoga Dog is extremely beneficial to children that are differently abled, on the spectrum, or overweight, Yoga Dog is also a great show for children without these health concerns- ALL Children can benefit from a POSITIVE and ENRICHING show.
Bullying in school is a huge concern and Yoga Dog has an aim to assist with that issue as well by teaching self control and coping mechanisms, and help kids who feel lonely find a friend.
Kids Yoga VS Adult Yoga.  The Yoga that will be shown on Yoga Dog is not like adult yoga.  Shakta Khalsa, a well know child yoga instructor, is the content matter specialist and is ensuring the yoga is appropriate for children 3-7 years old.

As said by Shakta, “Children will get up and move through the practice of yoga, and learn self-help tools to take with them into everyday life. Yoga Dog will be learning right along with the children.  So, for example, when Yoga Dog is angry or sad, he will breathe in new fresh energy, and breathe out his strong emotions, and he will ask the kids at home to join him.  It’s pure genius!”

Check out Yoga Dog for yourself, watch this short video:

Yoga Dog is still in the planning phase, but enough support and funding they are hoping to make Yoga Dog available to ALL children.  The hope is that enough funding will be raised to put Yoga Dog in every classroom in the US.  I am hoping they are able to accomplish this because our children do need more shows like Yoga Dog.  You can check out the Yoga Dog website for more information.
