    Default Angel Bear Yoga???

    Has anyone seen this or used it? I think it sounds great. My husband does martial arts that includes meditation and breathing exercises, but he's having a hard time imparting the basic understanding of what he's trying to do to the kids. I think we'd all like this but it's spendy and I hate investing in something with ZERO reviews!

    they use this book in kid2's yoga class at our homeschool co-op. i know that kid2 enjoys the class and loves that he's learning to do yoga just like mommy does, but i don't have any thoughts about the book itself. all i see of it is the pages that are photocopied for the kids to color.

    We use YogaKids. LOVE it. They have a few of them. Lots of fun. All real poses but adapted to kids. Fun for grownups to use too.

    Did you decide to buy this one? It looks really good. I have tried yoga kids also, and it was okay. my son had fun. But it didn't have any of the character formation like the one from your link.

    I had a hard time pulling the trigger because I so badly wanted to see it in person, at that price (combining the book and DVD) and plus my kids don't do *great*doing things the tee vee tells them to do, so I just wasn't sold.

    But then I found THIS ONE and I am thinking it might be a better fit for us. Like maybe a way, way better fit. It's designed for classrooms, but all the better. What do you think?

    My daughter (5) loves it, my son (8) thinks it's cheesy! LOL

    Okay, here are some reviews from the first edition. I looked up her blog but she doesnt offer any free excerpts.

    I looked up the storytime lady and here's a link to her sample... The sample looks good but when I looked at the TOC there are only 9 stories.

    Alaskamom, which one do have that your daughter likes?

    I'm going to assume a kids yoga class at a nearby yoga studio or community rec center is out (we have those options.) With that, Yoga Kids was great and my monkeys still enjoy it. Dd also love this video: My only caveat is that its an hour long.

    I've had the book you linked on my wishlist, but I've yet to buy it. I'm also interested.

    We use Angel Bear Yoga and really like it. I've used the curriculum twice to teach with our cooperative (I'm actually the one that taught Christina's kid2. Hey Christina!) The response from the children has been really good in the past.

    We don't use the DVD. We mostly use the main lesson book and the companion book to go with it. I think the program is fun, but more than that, I love how adaptable it is. It is very easy to cut stuff out to make lessons shorter, or add things in the make them longer, depending on what your needs are. I have also used the monthly lesson plans download, which has each lesson revolving around a book.

    It is geared toward children 3-9, but I think 9 is pushing it a bit. Of course, it depends on the child, but I think 7 is more of the sweet spot. My 2 year old enjoys joining in with us, and coloring the yoga pose pages to keep in her yoga notebook.

    We haven't seen that one. We do have several YogaKids DVDs though and they are awesome. I also love Lori Lite's mediation and relaxation books and CDs. Angry Octopus and Affirmation Weaver and Bubble Rider are some of our favorites, but they are all great.
