As a busy stay-at-home mom of three boys, it can be hard to find room for uninterrupted exercise, and doing yoga only happens in the once-in-a-blue-moon moment, when I have the two little ones napping at the same time. With three boys, who have a hard time sitting still, following the instructions of an exercise dvd can also prove to be a challenge, so when we first tried out the Playful Planet Storyland Yoga dvd for kids, I was a bit skeptical about how this kids yoga dvd would be received by my kids.
Before I knew it all three boys ages 18 months, 4 and 8 were running around making bear roars, snaking along the floor, doing the downward dog and more. I was very impressed, and while the kids and I have now tried out the Storyland Yoga dvd from Playful Planet numerous times, it does not get less interesting with time. Even my 18-month-old loves doing his stretches, and while he still thinks certain exercise moves need to be done in the arms of his mother, he still has a blast.
Storyland Yoga is the perfect solution to combining yoga with having fun with my kids. It is a fun, interactive yoga dvd for kids that is geared towards kids ages 3-8. For mom Storyland Yoga is a great dvd for a warm up, and I usually turn on the Storyland Yoga dvd to exercise with the kids before I get on my excercise bike.
Ahmed Fahmy is a certified childrens yoga instructor, and his unique approach to yoga engages children and makes them forget that they are exercising. Fahmy has the kids doing yoga poses such as the downward dog, cobra, child’s pose and more without them even realizing it, he uses two fun and action-filled stories “Save the Whale” and “Condor Trek”to keep the children’s attention, and through his stories he is passing on a very eco conscious message.
Storyland Yoga has won several awards including the 2010 Parent’s Choice Approved, Dr.Toy “Best Green Product,” and Preferred Choice from Creative Child Magazine)
