YogaBuddies DVD Review & Giveaway!

I love yoga to relax and unwind, especially after a stressful or long day.  It is a little less relaxing when the kids try to do it with me.  But I applaud their intentions!  They know I love it and they want to be just like me.  I also think it is a great idea to have them do yoga and relax before bed.  (Then maybe I can do some down dog without kids trying to run under me ☺) 

I recently came across YogaBuddies, and their Bedtime Stories dvd.  This dvd includes 3 bedtime stories, incoporating 42 yoga poses for your child.  This helps to relax, unwind and stretch! My middle child loves to show me how she stretches her fingers!  This helps my kids calm down before bed, and then we can read a story and they go right to sleep.  

The children in the video demonstrate the yoga poses as they are explained in simple terms.  It is fun to watch my kids try the different moves!  They love to roll out the yoga mat and stretch and pose!  The stories are entertaining and the whole video is very fun!
YogaBuddies offers the following: 

Before and After-School Enrichment Programs:  For children ages 5 and older, YogaBuddies provides yoga instruction in schools throughout Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley and Orange County.  

YogaBuddies Jr.:  Taught in pre-schools and corporate day care centers these short, but sweet and fun, yoga classes are for kids’ 3-5 years of age.
