What is Storyland Yoga?:
Storyland Yoga (Award-winning Kid's Yoga DVD) is a playful kid’s yoga DVD that engages children’s imaginations through storytelling. Certified Children’s Yoga Instructor Ahmed Fahmy takes little yogis on two fun-filled adventures, Save the Whale and Condor Trek, in which they learn yoga poses by imitating animals and gain interest in the planet by helping endangered species.
A wonderful way for families to enjoy “organic” time together, the video connects kids and nature while providing them with the benefits of yoga: health, clarity, and calmness. Get ready to play – the planet-friendly way!
I had the opportunity to review Playful Planet's Storyland Yoga myself, and also shared it with some of my mommy playgroup friends. What I loved most about this DVD is that it teaches simple yoga poses by having children imitate animals. For those not familiar with Playful Planet, check out the website here. Their programs not only educate children about health and wellness, but also teach them about the planet and how to take care of it. And, Playful Planet was developed by a mom! How great is that?!!!!
Storyland Yoga is geared towards children ages 3-8 years old. Having said that, I heard wonderful feedback from my mommy friends who had their children ages 3-7 years old watch and try this yoga DVD. The children loved the interactive and fun feel. Moms know that exercise is important and that many children would prefer to sit in front of a computer or television. Now, with this DVD, their children are having fun, while getting much needed exercise and learning about the planet. Some of the moms did the yoga poses alongside their children, so it turned into a family affair. Other moms who practice yoga weekly, said their children liked how they could be like mom, and do yoga.
This DVD also makes a great tool for moms looking to help children calm down and unwind at bedtime. One mom used this DVD as a relaxation tool before bed, and said that her daughter was able to fall asleep easier and wake up feeling refreshed.
If you are looking for a fun and interactive yoga DVD for your child, that even you, would want to take part in, then you must pick up Storyland Yoga today. Just take a look at what you are missing:
About the Founder of Playful Planet:
Karen Duggan is inspired by her 5-year-old daughter Lily’s excitement for the small things: blades of grass, clogs of dirt, animals of all kind. Through Lily’s eyes, Karen is reminded that we can all live like that, truly taking in life’s simple things: family, friends, and nature. This message is at the heart of Playful Planet, which encourages family time and connecting kids with nature; with the end goal of ensuring that our kids inherit a healthy planet.As the Creator of Playful Planet, Karen has produced Storyland Yoga. Playful Planet’s first video connects kids with nature through yoga and storytelling. This was not the first time Karen worked in the entertainment industry, however. Prior to Playful Planet, she developed and produced a pilot for a reality TV series, worked in post-production on NBC’s hit Fear Factor, and was executive producer of a feature documentary.
Before jumping into the entertainment world, Karen’s career was unique and multi-faceted. She has held positions as the Corporate Senior Manager in a growing publicly- traded restaurant (Grill Concepts, Inc. – Nasdaq: GRIL) and the Business Development Manager for a South African multiplex Cinema company (Ster-Kinekor) as it expanded into Europe. Karen also worked for many years in sales and marketing – first for a publisher and then for a medical equipment manufacturer.
Karen is known by business associates for her skills in managing others and keeping projects on track; she is known by friends for her interest in health and nutrition, her concern for the planet, and her love of being a mother.
