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 and positivity.

His 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 PBS stations.
Wuf Shanti 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.
Other products include videos, books, mobile app, plushies, mantra mats, mantra t-shirts, coloring books, etc. This new coffee table style book, complete with benefits, explanations, and mantras for each pose and meditation, is a great way for kids to learn the tools to deal with their emotions while spending time practicing fun poses and meditations with their grown-ups.
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.
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.”
