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.
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.Read more ›
