Great yoga movie for young kids

"This is a great introduction to yoga for young children. The format is that of a children's yoga class with several students, Snatam Kaur being the teacher, and the class consists of Snatam Kaur telling a story, which is accompanied by short illustrated (not animated) segments, and the story is tied in with yoga practices such as chants, poses and fun exercises. My daughter is 4, and this was perfect for her because she did not feel pressured to participate (making her shy) as she might have in a class setting. She eased into doing more and more of the practice each time she watched, becoming more comfortable and confident with it each time.
The music is great (my daughter LOVES "I am Happy, I am Good") and Snatam Kaur has an absolutely beautiful voice.
The focus is very positive: finding strength, peace and happiness within one's self. References to god are non-denominational, so this would be suitable for any religious background."
