A Little Kindness 

I have a brand new track to share! The simple and sweet “Kindness Mantra.” It's just right for kids, especially young ones, who love simple, repeated melodies, and is perfect for yoga, sleepytime, or savasana. A group of children’s yoga teachers joins me in singing on this one; we recorded them at last November’s Kids Yoga Conference.The lyrics are below. It's my gift to you, just today--please let me know what you think! 

“I can breathe in light, and breathe out love 
I can breathe in peace, and breathe…

"Open Your Heart" video with Laurie Berkner! 


I had SO MUCH FUN making this video with my friend--and kids' music superstar--Laurie Berkner. We met back when I saw that she was playing a solo holiday show in my town, and I reached out--I love to collaborate--would she like any harmonies or violin to back her up? We had a great time on stage that day--I sang harmonies on a few songs (including one she asked me to sing just at soundcheck, I'd never heard it in my life...), and I played fiddle on her classic "I Really Love to Dance."

A few months later I…Read more

Dance for the Sun 2.0!  Podcast

Actually, the official title is "Dance for the Sun: 2015 Remix," but you get the idea. Nearly ten years ago, when I released my first album, Dance for the Sun: Yoga Songs for Kids, I had no idea how much the title song would be used by kids' yoga teachers far and wide as a fun, musical way to teach sun salutations. I love going to an event like the National Kids' Yoga Conference, asking how many teachers use this song, and seeing tons of hands go up!

The original version was created back when I was…Read more

Mindful Moments for Kids! 


RELEASE DAY!
It's always so much fun when I can finally share what's been cooking behind the scenes for months and months. Maybe you’ve been following the countdown on social media--we've had fabulous blogger partners reviewing this new CD and giving away a free Mindful Moment for the past ten days--and release day is finally here! I'm really proud of this one: I’ve been working with children, yoga, music and mindfulness for a decade now, and it all comes together in this new album out today: Mindful… Read more

Rainy-Day Recess: Bring on the YOGA 


I recently did my first in-service presentation on mindfulness and yoga to the entire faculty at a local elementary school. I hadn't done this before, but I have a great relationship with the school, and was asked to do it by the principal. She's incredibly open to new ideas, and is trying like hell, under tough circumstances, to improve her students' lives. 

So, drawing on a decade of my own experience, plus compelling research I learned at The National Kids' Yoga conference, I began by presenting a case…

  • I just learned, through a SoundExchange newsletter, that today is #worldintellectualpropertyday.

The mission of the WIP Organization: "to ensure that artists are properly and fairly paid for their work." I absolutely love making music, and I often give songs away. But it's also my job, and it takes a ton of time, energy, and money to create just one track. I know people can listen to all of my music for free, at a variety of places online, whenever they want--so today I want to thank everyone who understands that music is an art, that it has real and lasting value, and who pay the 99 cents per track or $15 per album to own it, for reals. THANK YOU!! #appreciation#artist#makeart#art

  • Some of these kindergarteners’ favorite Mindful Moments: “Rainstorm,” “Hot Chocolate,” and “Imagine You’re A Tree.” Every student in the school started the day this morning by setting their intention, using “Today I’m Going To Be…” Some of the words we heard: fabulous, generous, active, excited, happy!

Shooting B-roll for PBS39’s Focus show, airing May 3rd, 7:30 PM EST!
