Creating Children’s Health Awareness!
The Phresh Mat has a unique design with playful symbols to guide proper Yoga positions based on the Principles of Alignment. Chi Phresh Mats keep kids focused and promote physical fitness, neuro-muscular development, mental and emotional wellness, and increased safety. The program was chosen for Let’s Move! L.A. - an organization and national initiative creating events for the awareness, prevention and reversal of childhood obesity.
The Chi Phresh Mat is currently available in two sizes.
Kids Mat ~ Fits 3’5” to 4’6” Approx Ages 5-9
Tween/Teen/Adult Mat ~ Fits 4’6″ to 5’11 Approx Ages 10 & up
A healthy activity for kids and parents, learning with the product is made simple. Inside every eco-friendly Phresh Mat is a double-sided “how-to” poster of poses. The game format makes it easy for kids of all ages and abilities to get active. Website: http://ChiUniverse.com
The name of the game on the Phresh Mat is the Chi Flow & Phreeze Yoga Game. It’s a blend of Flow Yoga & Breakdance Phreezes. The pictures, symbols, and instructions guide you through 10 levels of sequences. Exercises—based on the science of Yoga, urban dance moves, core strengtheners, and martial arts—are combined with breathing techniques that calm the nervous system and enhance focused learning. Kids love styling their ‘phresh’ moves with a peace sign, and earning Chi points as they advance.
There is also an App, the Chi Flow & Phreeze Yoga App, it makes independent learning on the Phresh Mat easy and engaging.

The mat and game provide simple-to-follow instructions to safely and efficiently integrate the curriculum into classrooms, gyms, studios, and homes. Unlike many Yoga programs on the market today, the Chi Phresh Mat and Chi Flow & Phreeze Yoga Game are a research tested physical fitness program that cleverly disguises physical education as a fun game that appeals to kids of both genders and parents alike.
‘Developed from a decade of research, teaching, and producing play-along fitness content, I created the mat to facilitate exercise and physical therapy for the whole family. The patented design is based on anthropometric and anatomical averages aligning bodies in positions for balance and growth. The most gratifying aspect is that children feel the positive health effects after playing on the Chi Phresh Mats. It’s a fun, functional product, and it feels really good to see it create emotional wellness in the lives of children, teens, and parents!’ - Bobbi Hamilton, Founder and Creator of the Chi Phresh Mat.
Ms. Hamilton is the creator of Animal Yoga for Kids which aired on PBS Kids as Yoga Breaks reaching an estimated 20 million households in 2004-2008.

She incorporates the Phresh Mat into a wide range of training sessions from professional dancers to overweight kids to children with scoliosis.
