Storyland Yoga for Kids - Review


Playful Planet has created Storyland Yoga and it's easy to see why they've been given so many awards for it. I gathered up my crazy bunch of preschoolers on a rainy day and told them we were going on a journey. For 23 minutes we went on a Condor Trek, stretching our bodies and our minds. Designed for children, these yoga moves are simple and interspersed with active moves to keep them focused.
The story line teaches children about caring for the animals, for the earth, and for themselves. The second story is just over 18 minutes and is called Save the Whale. Even though the package says ages 3-8 years, my two year olds were just as interested.
Interactive DVDs teach children listening skills and encourage them to follow directions. Since children tend to be passive observers when the television is on, I really prefer to offer them these types of experiences. Yoga for kids is a fantastic idea!
Even once the video was over, the children continued to talk about the Condor Trek and even played out the story line more in the dramatic play area. I love the idea of teaching them calming moves because it seems children just don't have enough opportunities in their lives for peace.
Storyland Yoga is the winner of 4 national awards: Parent's Choice, Mom's Choice Gold, Dr. Toy's Best Green Product, and Creative Child Magazine's Preferred Choice. By imitating the animals and helping the planet, children strengthen their muscles, learn spatial skills and balance, and develop respect for our environment.
I absolutely endorse this kids yoga DVD and think every parent should have it in their collection. At just $14.99 it's a very inexpensive way to teach priceless lessons. Five stars! Buy your copy HERE. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter!
Disclosure: I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
