Award Winning Kids Yoga DVD: Storyland Yoga Review & Giveaway

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. Storyland Yoga is equally fun for parents and family members who can benefit from yoga, while enjoying ‘organic time’ with their children.

Playful Planet presents Storyland Yoga for children ages 3-8.  In this DVD, children are captivated by their yoga instructor.  As he tells them a story, he and the children act out different parts of it, such as pretending to be different animals and rowing a canoe upstream.  As an adult watching, I was really struck by the creativity involved in both stories.  I also tried to do the yoga along and while it looks really simple, let me tell you that I'm one sore little girl tonight.  I stretched muscles I haven't used since I was 8!  On the kid front, my 6 year old actually got off the computer and came over to watch and move with me.  He was enthralled with watching the children move and listening to the story.  

The fact that the instructor speaks to the children as well as the children watching the DVD definitely makes children feel like they're a part of what's going on.  I can see where this is a great parent/child time together activity.  The stories talk about animals and the earth while the exercise is a healthy alternative to sitting and watching movies.  

Geared toward 3-8 years old, this DVD runs almost 45 minutes.

  1. I think my kids would love to do this. Story telling mixed with yoga seems like a pretty good combination.


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
