Yoga by the Dozen DVD Review and Giveaway



Yoga is awesome and we were lucky enough to get the chance to review Yoga by the Dozen . I have been a fan of Yoga for years now but don't get to do it as much as I would like to. I love the idea of sharing Yoga with my children and wanted to find someway so that we could all do it together. Exercise is important to learn at a young age so Yoga or any form of exercise is good for everyone. Childhood obesity is a growing trend now a days and anyway to help your child get up and move around should be promoted in everyday life. Living in the great state of Washington it seems like we are indoors a lot and sometimes it is hard to feel like we get enough exercise. One good way to stay indoors and still feel like you are moving enough is with Yoga.

Yoga by the Dozen is a top selling DVD created by JoAnna Ross, an accomplished yoga teacher, dancer and fitness educator from New Jersey. What I like about Yoga by the Dozen is how really focused it was on the kids in the video, it was not just a grown up doing Yoga poses. JoAnna was great at explaining everything so that even the youngest of kids could understand. All of the kids were not always on task and that is real, they get fidgety and she was really good at shaking things up to pull them back in. Each pose was introduced and demonstrated by one of the kids which helped encourage my son to try it with them. They did everything from the Tree Pose to a Dolphin pose and many more, there are 12 poses in all. This video targets children ages 2-6.




The web site Yoga by the Dozen explains the Key Benefits of Yoga:
  • Increase Cognitive & Motor skills
  • Confidence, Courage and Self-Esteem
  • Balance & Coordination
  • Memory Retention and Concentration
  • Nurture Creativity and Self Expression
  • Respect for themselves and each other
  • Proven therapy for kids with ADHD and Autism
We had a great time watching and learning from JoAnna and know that everyone can benefit from Yoga by the Dozen. This was a great interactive DVD that I know we will be watching often and soon be mastering all of the poses!
