It has now become a daily occurrence for Darah and me to practice kids yoga: specifically, we rock out her favorite animal yoga poses. Currently, she is fond of the snake pose (cobra) and downward dog (which she sometimes turns into a somersault!). I’m absolutely thrilled that Darah has started to practice yoga, all thanks to the poses being presented to her as various animals.
Kids Yoga DVD
I’ve been wondering about how to take our posing game to the next level, and I think I have found the solution! There’s a dvd called Storyland Yoga
. It has two yoga exercise routines on it (each roughly 20 minutes), and it is specifically designed for children ages 3-8. The yoga sessions are each in the context of a story. One is called Save the Whale and the other is called Condor Trek. The dvd shows children and the adult story teller becoming actively involved in the story being told, all thanks to yoga. While Darah is still a little too young to follow along, I can tell she is already interested in watching other kids doing yoga poses, so it won’t be too long before she’s going to want to join in, too.
I love that Storyland Yoga brings the world of imagination to my living room, and shows just how much fun it can be to practice yoga! I think this will be a great tool for bonding and for exercise for Darah and me to do together!
Playful Planet is the company behind this dvd, and their website is a treasure chest of great resources for anyone interested in learning more about why introducing yoga to kids is a good idea! Definitely check their site out.
Buy it!: Storyland Yoga is available on Amazon for $14.99. It’s a wonderful thing to have on hand. But don’t just take my word for it…check out all the great reviews it has on Amazon!
