GIVEAWAY & Review: Storyland Yoga DVD

My Thoughts:

We have had Storyland Yoga for about a year now, so when I found out about the opportunity to tell my readers about it and offer a giveaway to you, I had to jump at the chance. We have tried out several other kids yoga dvds, as well as Storyland Yoga and we really enjoy Storyland Yoga. What we like best about it is:

  • They are learning lifelong habits of stretching through yoga poses.
  • They are entertained by the story.
  • They are able to remember how to perform the poses by referencing the "animal" names.
  • It is something we can do together and yoga is not just "mommy's thing".
  • Access to this dvd is great when the weather is not conducive to playing outside.
  • It is easy to follow along with and moves at a comfortable pace.
  • You have the choice of 2 programs to do, as well as some not to be missed special features.

My daughter's physical education teacher has been teaching them yoga stretches as a way of conditioning their body and helping them calm their bodies as a part of his curriculum. This teaching in the school really helped solidify to her that this is valuable and not just a tv show. We'll continue to use this dvd through the summer months when the weather is not cooperative for outdoor play or just to keep up go yoga stretching habits.

Some More Info:

Winner of Parent’s Choice Approved, Mom’s Choice Gold,Dr. Toy’s Best Green Product and Creative Child Magazine “Preferred Choice”in the Environmentally Friendly Category.

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. Storyland Yoga is equally fun for parents and family members who can benefit from yoga, while enjoying ‘organic time’ with their children.

Condor Trek Run Time: 23:18

There are a couple options if you are interested in buying this kid yoga DVD. You can purchase the full DVD from their site, you can download each of the yoga programs individually on your computer (so you pay a cheaper price to download them & save yourself some green) or purchase it from Amazon: Storyland Yoga: Yoga for Kids and Families (ages 3 to 8).

I do the yoga videos on Netflix and sometimes my kids do it with me. They don't last very long before it turns into wrestling with them, haha. (Two boys.) I'd love a kid geared video!
