Keeping Kids Active in the Winter {Part I}

Keeping Kids Active in the Winter {Part I}



I am trying to find some fun active things for Baby Bear to do while I am nursing or doing something else for Mini Bear.  My sister had an idea to do yoga with her.  We looked on YouTube for kids yoga videos.  We watched a couple until we found Cosmic Kids Yoga. We set up the iPad and Baby Bear’s aunt did it with her the first few times so that she got the idea.

Cosmic Yoga Kids is not just a regular yoga routine that kids can do.  It is created with fun stories that are acted out by Jaime the Yogini with cartoon backgrounds that enhance the  story. Jaime writes the stories on her own in her studio in England. She does a faster pace yoga with modified positions that both kids and adults can easily follow.

Besides being a great fitness activity that can be done indoors in the cold weather, it helps kids to learn concentration and calm.

This is Jaime the Yogini.  She a joined by her friends Squish the Fish, Parsnip the Cat and Kickapoo the Kangaroo.
