My daughter really loves trying new things, so when we got the Bal Yoga for Kids book, DVD and CD, I barely had it unwrapped and she was racing to try it out. Since that day, it has become a ritual. Created by Glenda Kacev and Sylvia Roth, this program teaches even the youngest child the fun and relaxation of yoga. Each move is based on a letter of the alphabet which makes it more fun (and a great learning tool). ; A for Airplane Pose, B for Boat Pose, etc. Children learn the poses for Namaste, Om Shanti and even a lovely Pranayama song. Kids love the accopanying DVD with young children doing the poses with them. Children learn balance, coordination, body awareness, strength, flexibility, listening skills, and using their imagination.
My daughter is a big fan of the songs that partner each pose.
She is getting quite adept at her poses and she is definitely more relaxed after our little sessions. Here she is doing Wheel Pose. We love the CD for when we travel and she has memorized the poses.
Bal is Hindi for Child, which is exactly who we had in mind when we put together this program. It all started with a Preschool yoga class, where parents approached us to see how they could continue their children’s growth at home.
After a two year journey we are proud to present the Bal Yoga for Kids book, music and video series. In this program, we have combined traditional yoga poses, familiar childhood melodies and whimsical illustrations to familiarize children with the alphabet while strengthening their bodies and minds.
Our experience as Early Childhood Educators and years of practicing yoga combine to create a positive energy which we hope to nurture in young children through this program.
