Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I saw a t-shirt once that pretty much summed up my thoughts on running or jogging. It said ” I DON’T run, so if you ever see me running, you should run. Because something bad is chasing me!” Both my daughters love their marathons. Running is just not for me!! I truly only enjoy one form of exercise. Yoga!! I can’t describe how much better I feel after a class or a working out to a DVD. I’m so excited because I have the CUTEST little YOGI that really LOVES Yoga too!! Alice loves to do yoga!! She’s pretty darn good at it too!! She was thrilled when I brought out Condor Trek Kids, based on the DVD Storyland Yoga, from PlayFulPlanet. PlayFulPlanet makes the best dvds and books to teach kids yoga poses. OH MY GOODNESS Alice loves this little booklet. Actually it’s more the size of a calendar at 8½ x 11″ This is a story about baby condor eggs that need to be brought back to their MaMa in the mountains. Alice is asked to act out each of the different poses that are on each page of the story. For instance the first page is acting as if we were eggs, there are pictures to help us do the poses. The story goes as fast or as slow as you like because you do the reading. They we do the poses. I have to admit, for a 2 year old, her “Mister Wolf” (a downward dog) is pretty spot on!! I know that teaching Alice to enjoy exercise is important, something we can do together makes it even better!! I really truly hope that this becomes a life time love of Yoga!!
The story is fun and engaging. The illustrations are in the story are cute as can be!! Then there are pictures of children doing the poses, step by step. Seeing kids doing the poses made Alice’s face light up. She immediately identified with them and wanted to mimic their pose. This is a PERFECT book for the mini Yogi in your life!! This would be a great gift under the tree!! Exercise, FUN and a STORY?!?!?! What more could you ask for?!?!
Check out PlayFulPlanet for more ways to PLAY!! Check it out…….. “coming soon” StoryLand Yoga on TV!!! I know Alice and I will be watching faithfully!! Follow PlayFulPlanet on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
