Rainbow Gum Yoga Mats Presents ‘Specially Designed For Kids’ Yoga Kits That Support Children’s Mental Health and Physical Well-Being
Healthy habits for a better life are best started early on – that’s the goal of founders Sandra and Jeanette when developing a yoga mat starter pack for kids. An idea born from two friends trying to support each other across the country during the pandemic and during lockdowns in 2020, friends Sandra and Jeanette were looking for a way to encourage the physical and emotional resilience of toddlers in their own lives. Working closely with local Australian artists, manufacturers, yoga teachers and therapy educators, they have spent 2020 creating Rainbow Gum Yoga Mats as holistic yoga and mindfulness kits that will be enjoyed by children. and caregivers.
It is increasingly recognized that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are impacting people across the country, including children, with statements from Victoria’s Chief Psychiatrist Neil Coventry as well as the Director Royal Children’s Hospital Mental Health Officer, Ric Haslam, addressing the need for resilience, balance and routine as an aid in support and recovery. This year, the Australian government even launched the world’s first national child mental health and well-being strategy.
In Perth with her two young daughters, Sandra juggled the downturn in her job by teaching her daughters to stay positive and develop physical and emotional habits that would support them during the pandemic and empower them to become strong women and capable throughout their life.
Meanwhile in Melbourne, Faced with several blockages, Jeanette directly felt the effects of the blockage on her community, her family and her friends. Using her own experience with mindfulness techniques and the benefits of regular movement through yoga, the two friends wanted to provide others with the tools to enable better health and coping strategies.
