Labor Day weekend brought much relaxation for our family. Our little one is not so good at relaxing though so to help our crazy energized three year old calm down we gave Cosmic Yoga on YouTube a try. I heard about it from a co-worker and she said that when her son was young he would ask for the Star Wars episode over and over again.
This is a great program for children to do with each other or with their parents. There is a themed story line for each yoga episode with lots of little kid humor that is really easy to follow. The instructor keeps things balanced by completing each move on both sides as well as keeping it fun and energetic for the little ones. Our daughter’s favorite episode was “Going on a Bear Hunt” inspired by Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. The yoga moves fit perfectly into the poem and she loved to move through the different obstacles with yoga.
The most amazing part of the whole program was how the instructor rounded out the entire adventure by having the children lay down “in bed” and rest their bodies. My three year old laid down on her yoga mat, still and happy. Overall, we really enjoyed the yoga experience through the guidance of the instructor on Cosmic Yoga and our toddler continues to ask for it several times a week. After learning more yoga moves get inspired to take your yoga outside and enjoy some relaxation in nature!
