"Too many children spend their days motionless, transfixed by glowing screens. Beth Reese's instructional yoga DVDs provide a safe, fun way for kids to get off the couch and engage in gentle exercise, develop physical confidence, and learn about other cultures - highly recommended!” ~ Andrew Weil, MD
Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® is a research-based, trilingual, mindfulness and yoga program designed to empower people of all ages to make OHMazing® choices for their bodies, minds and hearts on and off the yoga mat. Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® was founded in 2008 by Elizabeth B. Reese, PhD, E-RYT, RCYT, when she realized that integrating yoga and mindfulness into the lives of her children was benefitting not only her family, but also having an empowering ripple effect on her community.
Yoga is an excellent muscle toner, increases flexibility and can calm the nervous system. There's no reason these benefits should be enjoyed only by adults, so I strongly endorse Beth Reese's programs - they bring yoga to children in an easy, accessible format. The fact that she leads sessions in a world-class museum, surrounded by great works of ancient Indian and Asian art, makes them all the more enriching and valuable.
Yogiños founder, Beth Reese does a fabulous job of intertwining yoga poses with the stories and includes clear alignment cues such as root to rise, hug the mid-line and shoulder blades on your back, thereby teaching body awareness and mindful practice of the poses.
Yogiños: Yoga for Youth™ invites viewers into a world of imagery and magic inspired by nature, mythology and one’s own inner beauty. Children of all ages will benefit from Beth Reese’s compassionate and authentic teachings about what it means to be OHMazing®!
We love this video. It’s eclectic with an amazing mix of yoga poses, the fascinating story of Ganesha, and the experience of yoga for a child’s point of view. The art is appealing, the cultural values are present. Sharing the asanas (postures) in three languages is truly a gift, it obvious the children are enjoying themselves. I highly recommend this DVD, to parents and kids to do together to explore the wonderful world of yoga.
