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. By connecting with nature and gaining respect for their own health and well-being, children become empowered to create solutions for the health and sustainability of our planet. Storyland Yoga is equally fun for parents and family members who can benefit from yoga, while enjoying ‘organic time’ with their children.
My boys are not entirely familiar with yoga, so I was curious to see what they would think of the DVD. Yoga instructor Fahmy does a great job of engaging the children in the story. My two boys were immediately focused on the Condor exercise. They listened intently as Fahmy described how a Condor moves and my six year old understood that he too was supposed to assume the different positions. My three year old didn’t quite understand, but with his older brother performing the moves he too joined. Fahmy does a beautiful job of storytelling and the delight on the children’s faces as he reveals different aspects of the story is adorable. My three year old loved performing the bicycle move. I loved the fact that my children were listening to a beautiful story about nature and at the same time exercising. The yoga moves were seamlessly intertwined into the story, and did not have the traditional feel of yoga at all. These yoga moves truly are kid friendly.
Here are my little guys trying out some moves.
And the ever popular bicycle move!
