Storyland Yoga Review

Disclosure- I received a copy of the dvd in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own. 

I have always been a huge fan of yoga! I love the the sense of accomplishment I feel when I finally do a pose correctly for the first time and I always love how refreshed I feel after finishing up a yoga session. I was so excited to have the opportunity to review the StoryLand yoga dvd because I really have been wanting to share my love of yoga with my kids. StoryLand Yoga offers a great way to teach children yoga poses by having them pretend to be animals. This makes yoga poses for kids much more fun and easier to grasp. One of the coolest things about Storyland Yoga is that through both yoga sessions, there is a story being told. These stories are socially conscious messages about endangered animals. I really like how the flow of the condor story teaches kids to do a sun salutation. I remember thinking at the end of that session how absolutely cool it was to tie that in with the condor story! The kids on the video seem to really enjoy yoga, it is almost a fun game for them and we all know exercise is better when it doesn't feel like a chore. I tried out the video with all 3 of my children, but we used it as one on one time with me, so I did it with each one of them at a different time. I forgot to take pictures with the other two, but I did take pictures with my little man Noah who had a great time trying to figure out all of the poses! My 6 year old loved following the story of the condor and the whale and asked me lots of questions about each of the stories. The boys are a little young to completely follow the story lines, but they sure had fun acting like animals and doing fun yoga poses! I think this is a wonderful video to introduce kids to yoga, a great thing that they can do daily to work their bodies and minds. I know it will be something that my kids and I will continue to enjoy together and often!
