I bought this DVD for my 4 year old daughter who often tries to do yoga along with me. I thought it might be fun for her to have her own yoga dvd that is geared towards kids. While this does have a storyline to help keep the kids interested, it really doesn't focus enough on the yoga. The instructor tells a strange and disjointed story about saving animals while trying to integrate some actions and poses. He occasionally takes about 1 second to actually describe the pose, but usually just jumps from pose to pose without much description of what he is doing, and there is rarely even a good camera angle to see what to do. My daughter followed along with the story but mostly just danced around the living room because she couldn't tell what anyone was doing and by the time she got something going, they were on to a new one! In the second story, I showed her each pose and described what to do so she could at least try to keep up. While she generally seemed satisfied, I thought the whole thing was really weird and didn't seem like something she is going to want to do often. I am surprised by all of the really positive reviews for this DVD. I might have even given it fewer stars if my daughter hadn't at least enjoyed jumping around and dancing during the story.

Storyland Yoga is a Must Have for every parent with children between the ages of 3 and 7! I was a little skeptical at first that my 3 year old's attention would hold out through the entire yoga session--each of the two sessions is about 20 minutes. I did the yoga alongside him, and, though the story was interesting and cute, he left off following the instructor about 2/3 of the way through. HOWEVER, about 15 minutes after Save the Whale (the first session) ended my son asked to watch it again. So we did it again...and again. Each time he watched he did more and more of the yoga moves that Ahmed taught. Since then my son requests his yoga DVD everyday! He now does all of the yoga positions, and has become so good at listening to the instructor and is very proud of himself for it. I love it! Storyland Yoga is something I can feel totally good about him watching! What is even better is that I love doing it alongside him! It is wonderful! It is helping him expand his imagination while strengthening and stretching his muscles--and mine too! I am so excited about having this during the rainy fall days and the coming winter days!

I already had and enjoyed the Gaiam Yoga Kids DVDs but my kids needed something new. Story land Yoga was awesome! They act out stories through yoga with two adventures to choose from. What a brilliant idea! I would love to see more like this. If there was a series of several episodes, I would buy it. PBS should pick up a kids show like this. Fun, educational, and entertaining! Doesn't get better than that! :)

Definitely not worth it. My daughters, ageas 5 and 3 were bored! There really ins't any real yoga involved. I guess my girls are used to doing real yoga with me and just simply were not interested in this.

I bought this and A Child's Way to Yoga the same day. My kids love A Child's Way and we stream it regularly for Yoga. My kids are toddlers though, so maybe that makes a difference. I think A Child's Way would be fun for older kids too, but I read a reviewer who sounded completely insulted by the immaturity of a yoga workout designed for young children (go figure); apparently her children were insulted by the childlike nature of the video too (shrug).

Anyway, we tried this video on the same day and it was a total fail. We tried it again and it was another fail. The teacher in the video seems to be doing more entertaining and storytelling than actual yoga. It doesn't seem to cover a lot of ground for the length of the video and my children were bored by it. It takes a very creative approach at associating stories with poses, which I have to give them credit for. However, it just wasn't that great because my kids didn't like it. It didn't have cute music or anything like the other workout video I mentioned (though the music on the other one is totally amateur, it's still fun for kids and the lyrics are instructional for where the child is supposed to be at in their pose; which is cool.)

I recommend trying the other video I mentioned, if you're looking for a yoga workout to stream for your kids. You may like this one though, who knows. Everyone is different.

I think this is a great way to introduce preschoolers to a yoga practice of their own. I bought this for my 2 and a half year old daughter, because she always wants to do my yoga dvds with me. Since her attention span seems to be very short for it (a few minutes, then she's off doing something else), I thought having a story to listen to during the yoga would help. I think it does, as long as I'm there guiding her through the moves and encouraging her. I think when she's a little bit older, she'll enjoy it more. I'd say their recommended age range starting at 3 is probably about right, so we'll see in a few months how she likes it!

My 3-year-old does this DVD with me and she really likes it. Although her attention span wanes somewhere around the middle of the story, it's still good for her to be exposed to the poses because I want to share my love of yoga with her for the future. She already knows several poses like 'tree', 'snake', and 'dog' and is very proud of her ability to do them! I think that a class is the best for learning because anything on TV will lead to a somewhat passive experience because they don't have the direct motivation to follow along as they would in a class with other kids and a teacher encouraging involvement versus just my gentle coaxing, but this is definitely the next best thing.

The DVD comes in a cardboard sleeve, so you might consider putting it in a ziplock bag to protect it from scratching.

Ahmed does a fantastic job narrating two wonderful stories - 1)Condor Trek (23:10 min) and 2) Save the Whale (18:30). Condor Trek tells the story of condor eggs that need to brought back to their mommy. The kids are imaginatively lead to the river in a kayak and meet up with a crocodile and a snake where they do 'plank' and 'cobra' poses to disguise themselves in order to pass by undetected. They see a bear, mountain lion, and wolves and learn 'bear', 'cat', and 'downward-facing dog' poses. They end by doing a sun saluation that reintroduces all the poses they learned before and take a solar-powered spaceship ride to the top of sun mountain where they lay in 'corpse' or 'relaxation' pose (savatsana) and allow the mommy condor to take the eggs back. There is more to this program, but this is the gist of it.

I haven't gone through the second program in depth yet to detail it, but they learn different poses like 'boat' and 'warrior' on their imaginary surfboard.
