Today my kids tried a new yoga program for children called Storyland Yoga. It has 2 different interactive yoga journeys that the kids can go on in which they get to act out the story in yoga poses. It was really cute!
My kids didn’t really want to do it at first because they have never used any kind of exercise video before.
What was funny was that my son had said he didn’t feel good, so he was sitting in a chair when I turned it on but he was the FIRST one to get into it and start doing the poses…
So then both kids started getting into it and the baby got confused and tried to play along, but he ended up sitting in Michael’s lap for a few minutes, laying on the floor on his back for a few minutes, and generally just staring. 😉
As you can see, my kids really had a good time with it! At first, they just wanted to do one of them, but then Michael came in almost in tears and begged to do the next one! How’s that for not feeling good? 😉

Storyland Yoga is a fun-filled adventure that infuses children with an eco-conscious message. Two unique stories, “Save the Whale” and “Condor Trek” engage a child’s imagination through storytelling. Kid’s learn yoga postures by becoming part of the story and imitating animals. Yoga is great exercise and helps to calm children giving them greater focus and increased clarity. Storyland Yoga is equally fun for parents and family members who can benefit from yoga, while enjoying ‘organic time’ with their children. Ages 3 – 8
Condor Trek Run Time: 23:18 Save the Whale Run Time: 18:30 Produced by Playful Planet: ‘Empowering Kids and Their Families to Be Healthy and Live Sustainably.’ 100% Recycled Packaging
I could definitely see my kids asking to do this again! Now that they are used to the format, I think they’ll want to keep it up. What I loved is that there was a good mix of seeing actual KIDS doing the exercises, having an adult instructor, and some really cute graphics to help with the story.
I really recommend that you check it out! Their website is at Playfulplanet.com
