Ages 6-12 - Yoga-Recess™ DVD (available Fall 2010)

Jules Hogan is founder of UPDOGdowndogYOGA and has many years experience teaching children of all ages a safe, creative and playful version of yoga-based exercise. Yoga-Recess was filmed in an actual elementary classroom with very little setup (only chairs and tables were moved slightly). The children did not have any prior yoga experience and filming was spontaneous to maintain a 'normal' classroom environment.  Yoga-Recess is a great tool for any school teacher to incorporate yoga-based fitness and health education into classrooms. .

Ages 3-8 - Playful Planet Storyland Yoga DVD

Storyland Yoga is a fun-filled adventure that infuses children with an eco-conscious message.  Two unique stories, Save the Whale and Condor Trek, engage a child's imagination through storytelling.  Kid's learn yoga postures by becoming part of the story and imitating animals.  Yoga is great exercise and helps calm children, giving them greater focus and increased clarity.   Storyland Yoga is equally fun for parents and family members --- teachers and students --- all who can benefit from yoga. Storyland Yoga was released in March, 2010 and received a 2010 Parent's Choice Award in the DVD category. http://www.yoga-recess.org/
