Poses, not pratice

"I read all these great reviews and must admit I was REALLY disappointed. I thought it would be a yoga dvd I could do with my child and she could have fun while I got at leaset a little of my workout in. WRONG. It is more like a visual encyclopedia of kid "yoga" poses. The yoga guy talks about the pose and "kid chats" a bunch, but RARELY is the one demonstrating the poses. I do not want to suffer though it again for an exact quote but basically he says things like "Camel pose is great, do you want to be a camel??? Camels this and camels that, bla bla bla camels". The whole while sitting there looking at you not doing the pose he is talking about and just talking while looking at the camara. Not even telling you what to actually do, just talking up the virtues and fun of the next pose. I would give it a 5 if it were a 2 part dvd with an actual yoga routen you could do that put all these poses together. The host talks longer than you do the pose it felt like. Definately not a break a sweat or high energy dvd. LOTS of down time and chatter with NO flow or routen. It will not remain on my shelf. If you are looking for a DVD with tons of talk and lots of gaps between movement than this is the one for you."
My five-year-old loves this DVD!

"I bought "Yoga for the Kid in All of Us" on a whim and, after using it once, my five-year-old son begs to "do yoga" with me every day! One of the nicest things about this program is that it's for kids and their parents to do together (though a child or parent could do it on their own). The "yoga dude" who introduces and explains the poses (you mostly see a mom or dad and a kid actually doing the poses) is just zany enough to amuse kids, but not so wacky as to annoy parents. The music is terrific; the pacing is just right. I look forward to more DVD's from this studio."
Better for younger children

"Based on the excellent reviews, I bought this video for my 8 yr. old daughter. Yes, we did it together and felt very silly.
This video is geared to the preschool set. I thought that the poses were not held long enough, especially for kids who have had some prior yoga instruction. This video is a great introduction for younger children (under 7) but not for school age kids."
