Storyland Yoga Review & Giveaway

Hosted by Certified Children's Yoga Instructor, Ahmed Fahmy. Winner of Parent's Choice Approved, 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.

This Moms review~ at first we put Storyland Yoga in and C refused to watch it.  He yelled turn it off!  I was really disappointed , because I thought it would be something he and I could do together and really enjoy.

 I didn't give up though and gave it a second try with Mom down in the floor doing each move and really talking to him about each part of the story.  It has quickly become a big hit with this active little boy.  We were rowing our boat, slithering snakes, climbing mountains, surfing  and having all kinds of fun.  Storyland yoga has become a favorite addition to our morning routine.  I really enjoy that it gets us both up and moving.  

I think this DVD is very age appropriate.  In my opinion  it would be a great addition to preschool and kindergarten classrooms.  You could pull it out on a rainy or cold day, or just to get some sillies out and use up some of that energy we all know children have so much of.   I will definitely use it on such days at my home. 

I can see an improvement already and we have only done the DVD a few times. The more we do it the more determined C is to follow a long with me  and do each task the other children are doing on TV.  He really enjoys the various animals in the DVD.  We frog jump all over the house.  The second story is about Saving a whale.  It's really fun too.  I really like that there are 2 different stories available on the DVD.  So, you can change it up and not get bored doing the same one time after time.

As you can tell from the video trailer Ahmed Fahmy does a great job storytelling.  This playful children's yoga DVD is a great way to explore storytelling with your child and also encourage them to use their imaginations.  They learn Yoga poses by imitating animals .
