Recently I was given the opportunity to review and discover the company Playful Planet. I was very excited as I knew my seven year old daughter would be in trying out yoga for the first time. I received the Storyland Yoga DVD in exchange for my own views and opinions.
So what is Storyland Yoga all about?
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.
This DVD has lots of great instruction for children around the ages from 3-8 years of age. Though I am sure children a bit younger or older would love this as well. My daughter is 7 years old and so she fit in the category this DVD is geared toward.
At the end of the two yoga videos, we clicked on the Special Features menu. There, you have to option of going through and learning the different yoga poses on their own without the story. Instead of the group of children, it featured one child. So it was like she was getting a one-on-one crash course in yoga posing. She enjoyed this as well.
Interested in checking it out for yourself? Head over to Playful Planet now to purchase the DVD for your child. The retail price is $14.99 which gives you the entire DVD's two yoga story instructions, and also full of special features as well. However, you can purchase the videos separately if you choose for a discounted price.
