Having a happy and healthy child has been one of my main goals as a parent. With Christmas approaching I thought about ways to bring more healthy habits and activities into our home. That was when I came across the Storyland Yoga DVD.
Storyland Yoga is a DVD from Playful Planet for children ages 3-8. The video is instructed by Ahmed Fahmy, a certified children's yoga instructor. There are two 20 minute stories on the DVD, Condor Trek and Save the Whale. Storyland Yoga teaches yoga poses during fun stories while encouraging imagination. Yoga is great exercise for children and the whole family can get involved too.
I wasn't sure that my 3 year old would be patient enough to sit through the video let alone participate. I was completely wrong and honestly shocked. My daughter participated in each of the poses and activities. She maintained attention for the entire story and even asked to watch the second story immediately after watching the first. She is loving practicing yoga poses for kids and I love that we are encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
Storyland Yoga is a fantastic DVD. The stories may seem a little silly for adults but it is meant for kids. My husband and I were both amazed with our daughter's interest and participation in the yoga instruction. She enjoyed it lots and wants to watch it over and over. This kids yoga DVD is a great gift for any child between the ages of 3-8. Besides giving them something entertaining and fun you are giving the gift of health.
Storyland Yoga DVDs retail for $14.99 and are available on the Playful Planet website as well as on Amazon. Shipping for the Storyland Yoga DVD is free in the Playful Planet shop.
