Wuf Shanti, Dog Yogi for Kids, Shares Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation with Children
Hi, Welcome to Wuf Shanti. Here is some information about us. Thank you for joining us. We are so grateful for your support. Together we can make a positive impact on the world.
Wuf Shanti is an adorable dog yoga character that travels the world sharing yoga, meditation, & mindfulness with kids through fun games & music. Shanti means peace. Wuf Shanti promotes health, wellness, & happiness in children, and encourages peace & positivity.
Created by a kid for other kids, this character teaches yoga & meditation in a fun way for kids to learn a mindful yogic lifestyle. Adam wants to spread the word to kids, parents, teachers, doctors, etc. The next generation is the key to healing this planet.
Adam’s grandpa taught him mantras about positive thinking, kindness, and gratitude, and now those lessons are being passed on to the next generation. It started with a book, My Grand-Dog was a Yoga Instructor, and now Wuf Shanti videos are currently on the Children’s TV Network in children’s hospitals across the country & internationally, and on local SFPBS stations.
We have 7 books. One of the books, Living in Light with Wuf Shanti: A Yogic-Minded Lifestyle for Children, is a 115 page coffee table cook for children with gorgeous full-page photos of Wuf Shanti doing yoga poses in different parts of the world, with the explanations of how to do each pose or meditation, and the health benefits of each. It is a great way for parents and children to practice together. The other books are all fiction with a yogic-centered theme, such as peace, kindness, positive thinking, etc.
We also have a mindful mobile app, Wuf Shanti’s Yoga Fun Machine, available for download on both Apple & Android devices, which has our videos, music, and mindful yogic games.
Common Sense Media named the App one of the “Best Health Apps and Games for Kids”.
Other products include plushies, mantra mats, mantra t-shirts, coloring books, etc.

Wuf Shanti videos, book, & mobile app were awarded the prestigious Mom’s Choice Award, & named the “Best in Family-Friendly Media, Products and Services.” The National Parenting Products Awards (NAPPA) also named Wuf Shanti “Best Products for Kids” in their Health and Wellness roundup!
Adam Levine & Maroon 5 posted about Wuf Shanti on their social media pages. We currently have 95K+ FB followers.
Wuf Shanti tours and visits schools, yoga studios, children’s hospitals, & charitable organizations. Wuf Shanti travels to children’s hospitals around the country to visit the kids because science has shown that positive thinking can help the healing process.
Our intentions for Wuf Shanti are: (1) to teach kids to live in peace & gratitude, spread kindness, let go of stress, & deal with emotions in better ways so they grow up to be less depressed and anxious teenagers and happier peace-loving adults, (2) to help kids learn to think positively every day because science tells us that yoga, meditation, & positive thinking can help the healing process, and (3) to reach kids when they are young so we can heal our planet. We think this character is so important right now with everything going on in the world, and we want to reach as many children, and their grown-ups as possible.
Wuf Shanti’s main mantras are the positive thinking mantra, “Think Well to Be Well”, the kindness mantra, “Smile and the World Will Smile with You”, & the gratitude mantra, “Smile and Say Thank You.”
