Before I had the kids I took some yoga classes. I really enjoyed them an found they were a great accompaniment to other exercise classes I took. I especially enjoyed the relaxing factor because, even before I had kids, winding down to relax was a challenge. When I heard about Yoga by the Dozen, a children's yoga program, I really wanted to try it out and share it with the kids. Happily I received the opportunity to try out Yoga by the Dozen's DVD so I was able to share it with A&W and now with you all!
First, let me tell you a little about the company. Here is a little bit about Yoga by the Dozen from their website...
Yoga By The Dozen™ promotes a healthy lifestyle for kids through their highly acclaimed ‘Yoga By The Dozen’ DVD and their complete line of lifestyle products for yoga. The top-selling DVD is a fun, interactive children’s yoga video, designed especially for kids ages 2-6. JoAnna and her 12 friends demonstrate a ‘dozen’ fundamental poses that will introduce your children into the exciting world of Yoga.
- Increase Cognitive & Motor skills
- Confidence, Courage and Self-Esteem
- Balance & Coordination
- Memory Retention and Concentration
- Nurture Creativity and Self Expression
- Respect for themselves and each other
- Proven therapy for kids with ADHD and Autism
Now for the video....I went into it thinking that my 2 newly four year olds would have some trouble staying focused and following along but that was not the case at all. Joanna and her twelve helpers (other children of varying ages) made the program fun and interesting and A&W made it through all twelve poses with giggles and very little signs of distraction. A real accomplishment for my busy boys!
My take on Yoga by the Dozen? Great product and great fun for the kids! I really enjoyed sharing this with A&W and will introduce it to baby R next year (it is geared for kiddos aged 2-6). I think teaching our children about exercise and taking care of their bodies is so important and the Yoga by the Dozen DVD is a great lesson to start with. You can buy Yoga by the Dozen on their website by clicking here. While you are there check out their other fun products like the kid's yoga mats and great t-shirts.
I am so pleased to tell you that, courtesy of Yoga by the Dozen, Reviewed by Mom is giving one lucky reader a copy of their DVD! Here is how to enter...
