Product Description

Winner of the 2011 Mom's Choice Gold Award (Home & Mobile Viewing)

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!

Review

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

NOTE: I received a free copy of this DVD to review for the web site Metapsychology Online Reviews; please see that site for a more detailed version of my review.

In Kids Teach Yoga, Flying Eagle, a 12 year old girl, Haley, leads a class of other children through a short, interactive, and accessible yoga session.

The Main Menu of the DVD offers the following options:
* Yoga Class
* About Eagles: a brief (1 minute) narration by Steve Engel of the Audubon Society featuring footage of eagles in the wild
* About Yoga Calm: a short (4 minutes) interview segment with founders Lynea and Jim Gillen
* Focusing Fun: another short (5 minutes) segment featuring psychologist Jeff Sosne, Ph.D., engaging in a ball activity with the children to enhance social and focus skills

The yoga class is taught in an outdoor garden setting. Haley has her mat placed at the front of a group of seven other children, who appear to range in age from approximately 8 to 11 (the DVD case recommends an age range of 4 to 11). The first five minutes of the practice involves warm-ups seated on the mat. Haley starts with what she calls a "breathing ball"--this is an expanding toy sphere (similar to Hoberman: Mini Sphere - Rings) which is used to mimic the in-out nature of the breath. First, Haley leads the breathing as one of her students counts, then she takes over the counting and allows a student to lead. She follows up with a second breathing exercise, belly breathing, where she instructs the class to lie on their backs and to use small rocks on their bellies to feel the motion of their breath.

Yoga isn't just for adults - in fact kids do this type of thing naturally in their everyday activities as they play and tumble through life.

What this beautiful DVD adds is the fun and discipline of actual Yoga moves taught by kids and done by kids that bring calmness, stillness, muscle strength, breathe control and emotional control to today's overstressed children. In addition, for those kids who don't get enough exercise through play and sports, Yoga provides an invaluable way to keep them healthy, flexible, calm and centered throughout their day.

I see the flexibility that my grandchildren enjoy and wished someone had taught me the Yoga lifestyle when I still could move like they do! Do your kids and grand kids a big favor, get them hooked on Yoga early - this DVD is a great start.

I love how well rounded this kids yoga DVD is. It includes kids leading yoga, easy to follow poses, kids giving each other compliments, relaxation, guided imagery, etc. The music in the background is very calming as well. I can't wait to us this in the kids yoga groups that I lead!

After reading most of the reviews, I wanted to like this product. However, I was disappointed. It is lead by kids which is great but there is no adult so imagine the class being run by a responsible young person. The young lady leading it is wonderful but it doesn't work for me and it didn't work for my kids. Also, the kids take turns leading activities which was a little distracting. You are actually watching their class take place. The leader would say, who wants to lead? Kids raise their hands and she picks one. After they lead, she says, "Now who has something positive to say?" I was like REALLY? I paid $20 for this? I think this is fine if your child has problems sharing, waiting to take turns or needs to see how to give positive comments. This is not something my kids need nor is it what I paid for. Icing on the cake - my kids hated it. Which no matter what I thought was the nail in the coffin. I would suggest getting a a basic beginner yoga dvd or have your child take a yoga class to get corrections and make sure they learn proper technique.
