Review & Giveaway: Sing Song Yoga DVD

Sing Song Yoga DVD

Description:

Sing Song Yoga is a kid’s yoga program that uses original children’s songs, sung to familiar tunes, to teach the poses. Each pose has a song in which the lyrics instruct the children how to get into the pose. Singing the instructions in a simple rhyming song makes everything easy to follow and remember.

You can choose to “Play All Poses” from the menu or can play one section at a time by choosing: “Standing Poses,” “Sitting Poses,” or “Floor Poses”. Whichever program your child uses he or she will begin with the welcome song and end with a yoga relaxation.

(Ages 3 & up; DVD Running Time: 44 minutes; Language: English)

Your Child’s Brain on Sing Song Yoga: Educational researchers are finding a link between music and movement, and success in school. One researcher, Shirley Handy discusses the 3 M’s: music, movement and merriment. The 3 M’s naturally increase the positive neurotransmitters and peptides in the brain, which are associated with memory, with new learning, and with the ability to pay attention. When the 3 M’s are combined in one activity it is especially brain-friendly which gives children a head start to learning. Sing Song Yoga™ specifically incorporates the 3 M’s.

Charity: Each year Sing Song Yoga chooses a different charity to which they donate 10% of the proceeds from their online sales. See info about the 2012 charity: http://www.singsongyoga.com/2012-charity-of-the-year/

Eco-Friendly Packaging: Packaged without plastic. The recycled board with a UV coating protects your DVD and at the same time is beautifully designed. Best of all packaging without plastic makes it lighter, saving you on shipping, and has a low environmental impact.

What I LOVE about this DVD:

  • The Sing Song Yoga kids are included in the entire DVD, including introduction section. Kids love to learn from other kids 🙂
  • The tunes are fun, really do stick in your head and will be a great multi-sensory way for kids to learn yoga.
  • By having the DVD divided into sections (standing poses, sitting poses & floor poses), it will be easy to chose the section that best fits the environment you are in and the kids you are working with.
  • More challenging poses include a symbol & verbal cue that the child will need the assistance of an adult for that pose.
  • LOVE the instruction “There are different ways you can do this pose. Choose the way that works best for you.” along with demonstration of kids doing modifications of poses.
  • Great that it includes Savasana relaxation.
