Storyland Yoga...Review & Giveaway!

In our home, I try and stress the importance of exercise.  We do not have a gym membership so our family's exercise is generally done at home in the form of exercise videos.  The kids have always taken a big interest in anything we do and exercise is no exception.  They will often try and mimic what I am doing in my routines but it is tough for kids to keep up with exercises geared toward adults (hey...it is tough for ME to keep up!). When I was approached by Playful Planet to check out their yoga video for kids, Storyland Yoga I could not wait to give it a shot with the kids.  Here is the scoop...

Storyland Yoga is a fun-filled adventure that infuses children with an eco-conscious message. Two unique stories, Save the Whale and Condor Trek, engage a child's imagination through storytelling. Kid's learn yoga postures by becoming part of the story and imitating animals. Yoga is great exercise and helps to calm children, giving them greater focus and increased clarity. By connecting with nature and gaining respect for their own health and well being, children become empowered to create solutions for the health and sustainability of our planet. Storyland Yoga is equally fun for parents and family members who can benefit from yoga, while enjoying organic time with their children.

What a wonderful way to children to be introduced to yoga!  The teacher Ahmed Fahmy takes the children on two great adventures teaching them yoga poses along with way.  Ahmed incorporates animal poses into the story seamlessly teaching the children the poses while keeping them engaged in the story.   A&W at nearly 5 really enjoy doing this video and we do it several times a week.  Condor Trek is their favorite taking them on a mission to help a mommy condor get her eggs back.  So fun!  I love that the boys are getting an introduction to yoga, a great story and the wonderful health benefits of yoga (stretching, flexibility, focus etc...).  Thumbs up from us all!   You can pick up your copy today on Amazon...

I think this looks like an amazing video! My 5 year old son loves Yoga - he has mastered 3 poses so far, Tree, Bridge & Dog. Since he is on the autism spectrum, his OTs at school use yoga as a way to strengthen his core and help his focus. It helps and he's always so proud to strike a pose for us. Since he's also a little book worm - I this DVD is a great combination of things he enjoys. And we could do it together.
