This is the third week of kids yoga giveaways here at Yoga In My School. Thank you for your comments and sharing happening via social media. I know you’ll enjoy this week’s DVD. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving.
Captivating Stories Foster Creativity and Flexibility
Laura Harper’s new DVD Be the Story Yoga uses storytelling to take children on yoga adventures where they can enter the story not only with their imaginations, but with their whole bodies. Knowing that children bodies and minds need to be engaged and having honed her craft with a willing Grade 3 class, Laura’s uses detailed imagery, interesting plots and yoga poses to captivate her young audience.
The DVD includes two original stories.
The African Cat
Be transported to the beautiful Serengeti Plains where a little African cat searches for a fearless companion. Will it be a wild dog, baboon, crocodile, elephant or some other creature?
The Boy and the Eagle
Filmed in a stunning mountain meadow of the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains, this story follows a young boy as he proves he is ready to be a man. What will happen as he searches for the elusive golden eagle feather when a lightening storm strikes?
Watch previews HERE.
She had my complete attention while my children and I followed along to each story. We couldn’t wait to find out what happened next especially when the lightening storm came and the eagle was injured in The Boy and the Eagle… But I won’t ruin the ending for you.
The yoga sequences themselves are creative and easily accessible for all ages. Laura doesn’t worry about alignment but instead encourages participation and creative expression while providing an example of a calm, purposeful practice. Most of all she invites children to “listen and pay attention to the important stuff of life: kindness, courage, personal power.”
The handy insert includes Suggestions for Use including curriculum explorations into Geography, Culture and Biology.
