Pizza Party! Kids Yoga Class DVD by Yoga Playgrounds
This fun and engaging instructional DVD provides a cost-effective, indoor yoga playground for young children (ages 3 – 7) with 5 / 7 / 20 minute activity options. Produced by Leah Kalish and taught by, Lisa Detamore, Pizza Party leads children through a yoga-based creative movement class that gives them the exercise and play they both crave and need.
The benefits of participation are enhanced awareness, coordination, balance, focus, fitness and self-control. No extra equipment or supervision are required.
Pizza Party offers a balanced combination of active play and reflective activities that are imagery rich and PE standards based. Children flow through guided movement routines that integrate yoga poses and include breathing, singing, balancing, pretending, strengthening, stretching, relaxation and visualization. Activities both energize, building coordination and confidence, and calm, nurturing focus and peacefulness. Regular participation supports brain-based learning and the preschooler’s natural need to explore, observe, imitate, manipulate, and master his/her world via movement and play.
