Tips for Doing Yoga with your Toddler
By Deb Weiss-Gelmi

“So what’s the best way to get my toddler to do yoga?”  With my background in working with kids and yoga, this is a question I’m frequently asked.  I’m currently loving life with twin toddlers, so being asked this question gives me instant visuals of my boys jumping off the floor while finishing up the Frog pose and repeatedly asking to do the Lion pose.  Yoga can be great fun with toddlers and it’s never too early to start!

I recommend beginning by learning the simple songs for a couple yoga poses, such as Downward Dog, Lion and Butterfly. Then, once you learn a song or two, give it a shot with your toddler.  When your little one is playing and seems to be open to it, get down on the floor with your child and sing the song while doing the pose. Though the Sing Song Yoga App and DVD are great resources for the parents of toddlers to learn the poses and songs, I don't recommend toddlers spend time watching the videos.  

As a parent, use these resources to learn one or two poses at a time and enjoy sharing this new activity with your little ones. The Sing Song Yoga songs are perfect for naturally introducing yoga to your toddler because they are simple and easy.  Remember to take yoga lightly and enjoy this time with your toddler. They might not join in right away, but eventually they will join in and keep asking for more!   

Then, when your kids are 3 or 4 it’s great fun for your child to actually start using the App and DVD directly.  But it’s always best to do yoga along with your child even as they get older.  It’s great bonding time as well as powerful modeling that encourages healthy life-long habits. 

The Sing Song Yoga™ iPad and iPhone App is the very first of its kind in kids' yoga apps.  It's perfectly customizable allowing the user to choose individual poses or a preprogrammed SSY Sequence by simply dragging them to the Sequence Canvas and play as a seamless video.  Perfect for families, schools, after-school programs and health programs (such as rehabilitation, special education or health and fitness for kids).
