The video features certified yoga instructor, Ahmed Fahmy, who takes children on two fun-filled adventures. The two stories engage children's imaginations while learning yoga poses while becoming part of the story and imitating animals.
We broke the video out today and really enjoyed it. The instructor, Ahmed, has a delightful personality and a gift at telling stories. My girls were completely engaged with the story and loved his animated voice and animal sounds. The postures were not difficult and they were eager to do them all. The stories were adventurous and encouraged children to use their imaginations. each story was about 20 minutes, which seemed to be an appropriate time. The DVD suggests you use this as a regular yoga class (love this idea) and also suggests you use this as a playdate activity with friends. I think this is a wonderful suggestion and can easily picture some of the girl's friends, boys included, enjoying this DVD. It was really more like a game for them with all the added benefits of yoga.
