Guided Meditations

The daughter of Leela Mata and Yogi Hari, Chitra Sukhu was born in Guyana and raised in a Florida Ashram in the tradition of yoga and ayurveda. She has published several books and inspiring CDs with guided meditations.

Chitra Sukhu is introducing a new type of bedtime story for kids.

Born in Guyana to a family of Indian ancestry and raised in the United States, Chitra Sukhu has practiced yoga and meditation daily since the tender age of three.

With the release of her debut CD, Guided Meditations for Children, Sukhu now continues the distinguished legacy of her parents' life's work in the field she grew up with.

Sukhu's mother travels the world teaching ayurveda, yoga, Vedanta philosophy and meditation. Her father, Yogi Hari, a Master of Hatha, Raja, and Nada Yoga who is well known and respected around the world as a competent and inspiring teacher, has an ashram in Florida and has published over 20 CDs.

Guided Meditations for Children allows children to focus and still the mind, relax the body, achieve a sense of wholeness, and establish an interconnectedness with the universe. It also encourages creativity, helps cut down on nightmares, and reduces hyperactivity in some children.

Designed for children ages 4-12, the CD takes young listeners on an inward journey into the earth's five elements--earth, water, fire, ether and air.

Each meditation takes you on a journey to a place of innocence and wonder. Meet the king of the Gnomes in the enchanted forest, and let him show you the wisdom of every drop of life. Let the Mermaids take you on an adventure to the depths of the ocean floor, a magical kingdom awaits, and see the secrets of the mermaid kingdom. Take a ride on the suns ray and enter the sun, "Surya" the magnificent king is waiting to show you his golden kingdom. Meet your Guardian Angel, and take a ride on a cloud to her home, many wonders await you. Then relax the body as silence is found.

Each meditation is accompanied with enchanting music and followed by a life enhancing message. The CD consists of five meditations, music, and special times set aside for kids to perform their own visualizations.

If started at a young age, says Sukhu, meditation can become inherent to the way children approach life. Children can learn to look inward for strength.

Sukhu is currently working on a yoga video for children.

Sukhu is an accomplished Indian classical dancer in the ancient style of Bharata Natyam.

"This is a beautiful meditation CD which will help children experience restful alertness and enhance their energy and creativity."--Deepak Chopra
