Yoga can promote a healthy lifestyle in kids as well as adults. By learning yoga at a young age, children can learn good habits, fitness, flexibility and coordination. Not only this, but teaching good physical education can also decrease stress in their lives and promote a happier, healthier child. It can be hard to hold children's attention long enough to do yoga, but you can actively engage them with the poses by making animal sounds, doing alphabet yoga or by having them teach you. The best kids' yoga videos help you do this.

Namaste Kids

Namaste Kids makes several high-quality DVDs geared toward teaching children yoga. The DVDs are divided into three-to-five-minute chapters that teach a pose or short routine. These can then be mixed and matched as your child prefers. Namaste Kids also sets the yoga in adventures through safaris, space and the jungle. This keeps the kids engaged as they learn the yoga poses.
