Kids love to follow other kids - as in this very special Yoga Calm class led by 12 year old Haley with original music performed by Rylie, another student in the group. Through yoga, storytelling and beautiful HD footage of eagles in the wild, Kids Teach Yoga: Flying Eagle creatively teaches children the qualities of the eagle: strength, focus and caring.
Social skills and team-building activities from Yoga Calm s award-winning, research-supported curriculum are also included in the class, where each child contributes by taking turns leading and giving each other compliments. The group serves as an excellent model of cooperative, supportive behavior and community.
The DVD also includes soaring music by Benjy Wertheimer and Michael Mandrell, and bonus tracks of focus and social skill activities with ADHD expert Dr. Jeff Sosne and a narrated eagle science segment by Audubon Naturalist Steve Engel.
Ideal for use at home and in the K-5 classroom, Yoga Calm s Flying Eagle makes the yoga experience enjoyable, imaginative and exciting for kids ages 4 and up.
A great companion to the award-winning book Yoga Calm for Children: Educating Heart, Mind and Body!

I think this kid-led atmosphere is really appealing for kids to watch and it definitely made my son [Ethan, age 3 ½] want to participate. The yoga positions aren't overly complicated ones, and Haley does a great job of demonstrating them, making it really easy to follow along. This DVD is a great tool for getting your kids up and moving, and if they're new to yoga, I think this would be a great introduction. The workout itself is fairly short, only 20 minutes long, so they aren't going to get bored and lose interest. Ethan actually asked to do it twice this afternoon! --Growing a Baby Reviews
Haley is impressively poised for her young age. Not only does she lead the class with confident authority, but also throughout the practice, she compliments her participants and encourages them to pay compliments to each other as well….I have no question that this yoga class would appeal to children, although I believe that the age range on the DVD starts a bit too low; I'm not sure that the session would hold a four-year-old's attention. For slightly older kids, however, especially in a small group setting such as a classroom, this DVD would be an ideal tool for fun, flexibility, and focus. --Beth Cholette, PhD, Metapsychology Online Reviews
The children in the DVD are young and appear to just be your average kids doing yoga. To me that is important because it made our children more apt to try the workout….[My kids] felt comfortable trying new things because the children in the DVD lost their balance and simply performed the moves as one would expect from young children. It was very real, which was a huge positive. --Mommy Mentor, From One Mommy to Another
The DVD spends a lot of time with the kids talking and giving each other compliments, which I don't mind, but then when it comes to the yoga poses and sequences they speed right... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Athena0911
It was simpler and shorter than I had anticipated. The stretches were good, and the interplay between the kids was nice as well, but I would have liked a few more poses. Read morePublished on March 31, 2013 by nj mom
