5.0 out of 5 stars great yoga movie for young kids May 14, 2010
This is a great introduction to yoga for young children. The format is that of a children's yoga class with several students, Snatam Kaur being the teacher, and the class consists of Snatam Kaur telling a story, which is accompanied by short illustrated (not animated) segments, and the story is tied in with yoga practices such as chants, poses and fun exercises. My daughter is 4, and this was perfect for her because she did not feel pressured to participate (making her shy) as she might have in a class setting. She eased into doing more and more of the practice each time she watched, becoming more comfortable and confident with it each time.

The music is great (my daughter LOVES "I am Happy, I am Good") and Snatam Kaur has an absolutely beautiful voice.

The focus is very positive: finding strength, peace and happiness within one's self. References to god are non-denominational, so this would be suitable for any religious background.

3.0 out of 5 stars A careless statement ruins it... July 26, 2011
By Kaia
Verified Purchase
Overall this is a lovely DVD. The music is beautiful and the story has many nice lessons in it, such as overcoming fear (Shanti meets a fierce cobra who is really just reflecting Shanti's own fear back to her). There is a pretty good mix of yoga movements and meditation for younger kids, although as another reviewer noted, many of the movements are focused on the upper body and to me do not seem as relevant as they could be (simply waving hands/arms, etc). Occasionally the way Snatam addresses the "boys and girls at home" is a bit awkward.

The main reason I am giving this DVD only 3 stars is because in the part of the story where Shanti follows a butterfly and the children are doing a butterfly pose, Snatam says straight into the camera, "Oh my God! You're going off the ground! You better not tell you parents about this!"

First of all, I don't think it's appropriate to use the name of God in this way. Secondly, one of my main focuses as a parent is developing a relationship with my children in which they feel free to tell me about anything, and hearing this statement in the DVD was very disappointing. Thirdly, why would my kids not want to (or why shouldn't they) tell me about imagining flying up to the sky as butterflies? Because of the way the camera zooms in on her face at this moment makes it very difficult to simply ignore, and unfortunately, it almost ruined the entire DVD for me.

As a final note, my four year old enjoyed watching, and followed along for part of it, but found it hard to follow along with some of the chants. I think it got a little long for her, as well. My two year old joined in a bit, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Granddaughters ages 4 and 6 love it November 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
I didn't even know who Snatam Kaur was when I ordered this based on ratings. What a pleasant surprise to realize it was the Kundalini yoga I had recently fallen in love with myself, thanks to a masterful teacher nearby. I bought the girls 2 pink yoga mats and this DVD and they wanted to do the whole thing a couple times a day when I visited for 2 weeks. I do agree with Kaia that one remark this lovely peaceful pregnant woman makes is not appropriate. My granddaughters loved the "adventure" story, the songs, the poses, the running around. They especially were attracted to the other children in the DVD, deciding each time who they liked the best. Get this video and do it with your own children or grandchildren. You will love it and feel happy and healthy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very peaceful and fun July 28, 2011
Verified Purchase
I really enjoy this DVD, and I hope my two year old will when she is a little older. My only concern is if it will keep her attention, or if it is too long. We shall see :-). We listen to the soundtrack often so she knows the songs and mantras already and I hope that helps. I love Snatam Kaurs music, it calms the whole family down...even my three month old.

As a yoga teacher myself, this video is one of my absolute favorites! Sanatum Kaur's blend of beautiful music, illustrations, yoga and song for children is divine! It is calming, centering and a great place for young ones to learn about taking care of themselves and listening to their heart. If I could give it 10 stars I would!
