"I initially was not impressed with this video. As another reviewer mentioned, Wai Lana's manner of speaking reminded me of way the anesthetic affected my speech when I had a tooth extraction.
However, and much more importantly, my 4-year old son really enjoyed it. He was very into watching the children do the poses, and seemed to be tuning out Wai Lana's voice since he never responded to her questions or comments, he was just focused on the poses. Even his brother got down and started doing some of the poses, and that was a first. He has run thru the disc several times on his own, and also had fun deciding the order in which he wanted to do the poses (a feature on the DVD, not sure if it's on the VHS if there is one).
I would recommend this DVD for a younger child just learning yoga."
Daughter loves it!

"We got this when my daughter was about 3 or 4. She is 6 now and still loves it. It has made her more aware of her breathing, etc. The reference to animals, the cartoons, and the children on the video make it fun, and Wai Lana's unusual accent makes her smile. My daughter now knows the name of all the yoga poses.
Anything that encourages a lifetime of exercise and caring about your body is good in my eyes. My son just turned 3 and is not as interested in it yet, but I think he will be soon."
My son asked to watch this again...

"I was tempted to order it on Amazon due to positive comments from other users and went to Youtube to look at a 3 min clip that someone has uploaded (The Balloon song) and heard Wai Lana's voice which I agree was kind of creepy...so I decided not to get it. Then I came across a copy which was on sale at a local store and got it at around US$2 thinking that I had nothing to lose. Went home, showed it to my two and a half year old boy, and he was fascinated and watched the whole video without stopping. I then forgot about it and a couple days later, he asked to watch the "yoga" tape again! I was surprised. I realize that though Wai Lana's English is accented, her voice is actually quite soothing which relaxed me and probably my son."
