Storyland Yoga Review


Storyland Yoga is a DVD aimed to broaden a child's imagination and teach the benefits of Yoga through story time.
It consists of two yoga story sessions: Condor Trek and Save the Whale, each teaching new yoga positions, as the children become a part of the story and imitate the animals.
Yoga is a great calming exercise for children, and adults,
to help gain more clarity and focus,
while gaining a better respect for the body. 

I've done yoga in the past with my son, and he really took a liking to it. Storyland yoga seemed like it would be fun and grasp his attention even more, with all the story telling. So we started off watching the Condor Trek yoga session. Minutes into it, my son said it was boring. He had a really hard time getting into it, I think because the story was being told with very few pictures. Once the children in the film started "putting sunblock" on as a yoga move, he said "It's too funny! I can't do that! It's just way too funny." I think his favorite part would be when they introduced the snake poses. The added hissing sound made it more fun, so the kids could pretend to be a snake,
imitating how the snake would act,
and stretching your body to the sky.

I thought Storyland Yoga would be a little more story-like, with more of a storyland background and pictures, but it's mostly the man in the DVD wording the story. Occasionally pictures are shown of what might be happening in the story he is telling, but if a background or maybe more pictures were added, I think Storyland Yoga would have been a lot more fun. Especially if they added the animal character animations into the yoga scene, maybe interacting with the children..that would be really exciting for the kids watching at home. 

Keeping your kids active, with daily stretching is an excellent part in growing. 

*Storyland Yoga has won 4 National Awards and is aimed towards children ages 3-8.
