In the interactive yoga application just for kids, we step onto our magic mat and fly through the ancient lands of Egypt. We are as strong as a mountain, as silly as a Laughing Dove and as playful as a dolphin. Dive deep into the Red Sea to discover indigenous curiosities, like a long-lost sphinx! This beautifully hand-drawn Kids’ Yoga Journey incorporates 13 yoga poses for children demonstrated by children. Get ready to open your heart, expand your mind and reveal that YOU are the real treasure to love.
Additional Interactive Features:
Animated Poses: Follow the children as they do the real poses through the yoga journey.
I am Love: Kids’ Yoga Journey was created to help kids feel great about themselves. This application empowers young children through strength, fitness and breath affirmations. Our story reinforces color recognition, introduces wondrous nature and animals, and reveals the cultural value of our world. By embracing a myriad of learning styles, we reach the visual learner by images, the audio learner by reading the story, and the tactile learner by connecting the imagery and words with movement. Parents, teachers and educators can take part in this interactive experience with the children by learning optimal alignment in the yoga poses and educational facts about how the pose affects the mind, body and spirit.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4.5 million American children have been diagnosed with ADHD in the last four years, while 17% of children are considered overweight or obese. With over-stimulating schedules, ADHD, childhood obesity, anxiety, and depression on the rise, the spiritual and physical discipline of yoga can truly benefit the overall health of our children. Here’s How: Kids who practice yoga, experience a deeper awareness of their physical bodies, increased flexibility and concentration in a non-competitive and fun environment that encourages their spirits to be at peace.
We are a team of mothers, writers and artists who were inspired to collaborate on this children’s yoga application from an original yoga lesson plan written by Rachel Glowacki (RYT). As a Kids’ Yoga Director for Holy Yoga and a Master Holy Yoga teacher, Rachel has been teaching yoga for the past three years. She is passionate about connecting children to their hearts, minds and bodies through yoga and breath affirmations. Danielle Cather, certified kid yoga teacher, illustrator, and a co-creator brought this journey to life through whimsical illustrations and vibrant colors. Anne Tracy Emerson is an Emmy award-winning television producer and writer who wove this creative flow together for us as the editor and a co-creator. We look forward to continuing our journey with you. Namaste!
