Review & Giveaway: Yoga Adventures with Down Dog: A Yoga Alphabet Playdate DVD

 

Product Details: Yoga Adventures with Down Dog is a 16-minute DVD where children will learn not only yoga postures, but also the alphabet, letter recognition, and spelling as well. Kids will delight in singing yoga songs, practicing simple yoga poses, and using letters of the alphabet to have fun and feel great while developing life skills at the same time.

Featured yoga poses: dog, otter, grasshopper, frog, butterfly, lion, airplane, kite, easy pose & do nothing pose (savasana)

List Price: $14.95

Where to Purchase: Available on their website: http://www.abcyogaforkids.com/ (free shipping with coupon code ABCYOGA), Barnes and Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/yoga-adventures-with-down-dog-teresa-anne-power/1113185272 & on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Yoga-Adventures-Down-Dog-Alphabet/dp/0982258755

Here are my favorite features of this DVD:

  • Fun songs
  • Promotes early literacy skills including letter recognition, letter sounds & phonemic awareness
  • The use of a costumed character and the short length will appeal to young kids or those at a young developmental level
  • Simple poses that should be easy for young kids.
  • Simple menu – just click “play”
  • Would be great to pair with their other fabulous The ABCs of Yoga for Kids products: book, coloring book, yoga card deck & poster

  2. Entries via the Facebook tab:

    • I would use the DVD to help teach my kindergarten students letters and letter sounds….the DVD would be e great way to help reinforce language skills through movement. I already teach using yoga for transitions, large groups movement, and activities during my math and language arts blocks.I could also use it in a stations to provide students with an opportunity to practice yoga positions, and as a means of calming down as an alternative to a “time out” area. This would be a great addition to my classroom!

    • I am an occupational therapist and I would be using this DVD in my school based practice with my students who have a variety of disabilities.

    • I would use this DVD in connection with my yoga class I do with my students. The students I work with have severe emotional and behavioral challenges and have found a real connection to yoga practice in the classroom.

    • I am a new certified yoga teacher. I would like to put my hands in all inspiring materials to teach kids with much love And believe that yoga is wonderful for the mind and the body and it is applicable to our daily lives.

    One entry that was not valid because it was not within the USA or Canada:

    • I would use it with my two children, aged 3 and 7 months. We attend a Yoga Bugs class here in Tasmania. Lots of fun and we enjoy all the extensions, such as learning the alphabet! My child is always searching for new creative ways to express herself, this looks like a wonderful resource. 🙂
