In Storyland Yoga, children follow two unique stories (Save the Whale and Condor Trek,) and learn yoga poses by imitating animals and story elements, while receiving the aforementioned earth-friendly messages. Since it’s release in March, 2010, they have been awarded the Parent's Choice Award, the Dr. Toy's ""Best Green Product"" and “Preferred Choice” by Creative Child Magazine as the sole winner in the ""Environmentally Friendly"" category. It is also getting overwhelming praise from families, teachers and health professionals. They were just featured in Yoga Journal (October,) and will be in Our Favorite Things section in Disney Family Fun in November.
This dvd is geared towards kids ages 3-8 and retails for $14.99. A portion of the proceeds from each dvd are donated to "Save the Whales" and "Kids vs. Global Warming" foundations.

We received a copy of this dvd to try out at home. Last year Zach took a yoga class after school and loved it, so thought this would be a great way to do some more at home. This was such a cute dvd. Not only are the children doing some exercise by practicing their yoga but they are using their imaginations all along the way. I love the way the children have to act out all the different animals or actions, like rowing a boat or being a bear! Zach was a bit goofy doing this, and didnt quite do the yoga moves but he did enjoy it a lot. He had a friend over while watching and she loved it and did such a great job doing the yoga moves by following along. I would definitely recommend this dvd for kids 3-8! I cant wait to share this with more of Zach's friends and to be able to do it along side him to have some fun!
