  • Every little cell

  • Here comes the little Yogi

Here’s what I love about the CD: OM Work, along with Namaste ‘n Play & Kidding Around Yoga “Music For Little Yogis”, CD’s are full of songs that are unique & fun! I love how creative and upbeat their CD’s are. Adding music to kids yoga is a fun way to enhance a theme & encourage participation. Many kids with special needs, especially those with Autism Spectrum Disorders, respond well to music and often are drawn to songs that have a strong beat or rhythm. Many of the KAY songs are fun twists on familiar tunes which will help kids engage quickly but also enjoy the novel nature of them. It’s fun to do yoga along with the songs.

Tip: Many of the kids I work with have difficulty following quick instructions so I use the SlowTunes app on my iPhone to import many of the songs I use in OMazing Kids yoga & my work as a SLP. From there I have the option to play them in “slower” & “slowest” modes without changing the pitch or distorting the songs in any way (one of my new favorite apps! well worth the $1.99 price).

4 – Salutation to the Sun (the slower pace will help the kids I work with be able to learn a “sequence” of poses)

5 – Head Shoulders Yoga Pose   (I love the way they take a tune kids are familiar with and add yoga flair to it!)

6 – Joggin’ Through the Jungle (will be a fun addition to a jungle-themed yoga class! Love the strong beat….. many kids with Autism love songs with a strong beat!)

7 – TOE-GA  (can’t wait to get out the pom-poms and do some toe yoga to this fun song. Check out these websites for ideas: http://mariasmovers.com/2011/05/toe-ga/ & http://bodylogique.blogspot.com/2010/07/going-barefoot.html)

8 – Hip Hop Yoga Bop (will be fun to use in Yoga Freeze Dance)

9 – The Strap Song  (I don’t have any yoga straps yet…. but this fun song makes me want to get one and try it out!)

10 – Massage Train (partner poses are a fun way to work on social skills & to explore different intensities of touch for kids with Sensory Processing problems)

11 – The Secret Garden (kid-friendly guided progressive relaxation)

12 – In The Secret Garden Instrumental  (will be perfect for Savasana)

13 – Tingsha (love the calming kids voices & chimes in this song!)

14 – Om Shanti (love the message of this song!)
