Review & Giveaway: Namaste Kid’s “Sport Yoga” DVD

The new “Sport Yoga” DVD by Namaste Kid is a great combo of  “sports themed” yoga with their signature distraction-free background & kid-friendly format!

.

  • The DVD is organized into 11 chapters.
  • Each chapter is a complete 3-5 minute yoga routine, identified by a colorful icon.
  • You can mix-and-match chapters to create your own unique yoga experience.
  • This DVD can also be played from beginning to end as a full 42-minute yoga routine.
  • I LOVE the sports theme, creativity, short length of each chapter, distraction-free background, kid-friendly menu, parent info section & that it includes affirmations (I am fun! I am playful!).
  • Love that this DVD also has “Cool Down” & “Yoga Rest” segments.
  • If you are a kids yoga teacher, this DVD will give you some new creative ideas for yoga poses (ex: scoop up your legs to add sand onto the sand castle in flower pose, cross-crawl hike from Brain Gym as a soccer ball bounce, a modified dancer pose as a “slam dunk” in basketball, etc….). Kids yoga teacher trainings very rarely come to Oklahoma so I am always excited to find other ways to get new ideas. 

See the “Kick It” chapter from the DVD on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPLvBESNaxE

Product Description:  Sport Yoga engages your child in yoga poses set to their favorite sports, including basketball, baseball, and bike riding! Sport Yoga combines child-friendly yoga poses with active movement. Your child will find fun, interactive, and challenging ways to move their body right on their yoga mat. Little yogis can create their own sport activity. Little yogis can create their own sport activity. Sport Yoga contains 11 chapters. Each chapter is a complete 3-5 minute yoga routine that encourages your child to move their body. This DVD can be played from beginning to end as a full 42-minute exercise routine. Your child can also mix-and-match their favorite sports to create a custom workout. Sport Yoga simply features Sarah and her mat. Sarah leads a fun and energetic yoga practice, teaching your child the importance of keeping their body healthy and active. It’s like having a personal yoga instructor in your living room! This DVD is ideal for kids ages 3 to 8. There are also tips to help your child maximize the benefits of the DVD.

DVD Price at the time of this post: $15.99. Available for purchase on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Kids-Yoga-DVD-Sport-Children/dp/B00FP87B40 . This DVD is also part of the new Yoga Motion 3-DVD Set ($39.99):  http://www.amazon.com/Kids-Yoga-DVD-3-disc-Set/dp/B00FP8G38K which will be the prize it this giveaway. I have previously reviewed the other two DVD’s in the set so be sure to check out those reviews on my blog: http://wp.me/p1t7TU-9l & http://wp.me/p1t7TU-xY

More about the unique “distraction-free” background: While the DVD was designed for young kids (3 to 8 years old), it also would be appropriate for older kids that need a simplified format with no distractions. I have found that this format works well with young kids short attention spans and also works well with kids who have ADHD, Autism, etc…..

Why does a “distraction-free” background matter?….

(FYI… the blue painting in the background above is a portion of “Sensory Chaos” by Donna Proctor: http://fineartamerica.com/products/sensory-chaos–autism-donna-proctor-poster.html)

Free Printable Choice Cards: I made these by taking screen shots off the DVD of the icon for each chapter. Many of the kids I work with have very limited verbal skills so I needed a way for them to be able to make a choice of what yoga adventure we should do. One of our TV’s is wall mounted so the kids can’t just point to the menu on the TV plus many of our kids can’t make a choice out of a field of 11…… but can out of a field of 2 or 3 choices. I cut my cards apart and laminated them so I can offer 2 choices at a time….. but you could also leave all choices on 1 sheet if the kids you work with can handle that many choices.

The Yoga of Dr. Seuss – inspired by “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” {free printable}

Dr. Seuss books & characters are a wonderful inspiration for kids yoga class activities. Here are a few ideas based on the book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”:

  • Mt. Crumpit mountain pose
  • Max the downward facing dog pose
  • Who choo-choo breath
  • Christmas tree pose (make ornaments from paper, felt or foam & hang from your arms (“branches”) in tree pose)
  • Who feast (group table pose)
  • Grinch Santy Claus Ho-Ho-Ho breath
  • Crumbs too small for a mouse pose
  • Group sled pose (seated angle in a line, lean to each side)
  • Heart grew three sizes mudra (pic: http://tinyurl.com/c7s7dtt)

This story would be best for kids who are a little older and can lead to great discussions about the over-commercialization of Christmas, what was truly important to the Whos, etc.

I added 3 yoga cards to my Seuss Yoga post:

OMazing Kids Yoga at the JD McCarty Center in Spry Living Magazine

Wow! Imagine my surprise to be reading the daily Google Alert for “kids yoga” and see my name. Totally humbled that they would publish this. The picture is of two of our inpatients, Maria Bratton a fellow SLP who helps lead our therapeutic yoga group & me:

Here is the link to the article in Spry Living online: http://www.spryliving.com/articles/vip-sharing-yoga-benefits-with-kids/

(PS. While they did get a couple of the facts a little off, including my age, it is true that I don’t do much yoga personally….. mainly the breathing & some gently poses. It’s what works for me & my busy schedule 🙂 )

222 Books for Kids Yoga – a Resource List from OMazing Kids Yoga (updated 7-7-12)

I just updated the resource list to add new books I have purchased since the original list was posted on 4/6/12 – (https://omazingkidsllc.com/2012/04/06/books-for-kids-yoga-a-resource-list-from-omazing-kids-yoga/). This is now a list of 222 kids picture books that would work well in a kids yoga class and includes the book title, author & themes . 

Excel document (you can sort, search & print – must have MS Excel to open): Books for Kids Yoga Resource List (from OMazing Kids Yoga) – updated 7-7-12 (Excel Version).

PDF version (you won’t be able to sort but will be able to search and print – included this for folks who don’t have Excel): Books for Kids Yoga Resource List (from OMazing Kids Yoga) – updated 7-7-12 (PDF Version).   Need help with “searching” for specific words in a PDF? Check this out:http://www.window.state.tx.us/specialrpt/search.html .

It does not include kids books specifically designed for yoga or mindfulness because the list was created to be a resource for folks like parents, teachers, childcare providers, therapists, etc….   I have reviewed several great kids books specifically designed for yoga &/or mindfulness, love them all and plan on making a separate list of those soon. In the meantime, you can find books I have reviewed by searching my blog: https://omazingkidsllc.com/category/books/.

Want even more ideas for books to use in a kids yoga class?

Check out the “Books, Books, Books” album on the OMazing Kids Yoga Facebook pagehttp://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.338142666236745.94253.174264525957894&type=3. I post new books, links to free printables & story props in this album frequently. I also have an OMazing Kids Yoga Pinterest page where I share info: http://pinterest.com/OMazingKids/.

 Also check out Storyoga for lots of book ideas (website:  http://www.storyoga.com & Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Storyogafriends)

And the cool bibliography from Yoga in my School:  http://yogainmyschool.com/pdf/yoga4literacy_bibliography.pdf (15 page PDF) and their Pinterest board: http://pinterest.com/yogainmyschool/books-for-kids-yoga/.

Can you tell that I LOVE great kids books?!  Feel free to share any of your favorite books (including title & author) & details about how you use them in a kids yoga class either in the comments section below or on my Facebook page….. I love exchanging ideas :)
