Tot Yoga | Yoga for You and Your Toddler {review}

Tot Yoga is the first video to focus on yoga for children between 10 months and 3 years old. The video encourages safe and nurturing physical activity to improve the parent-toddler relationship by increasing exercise and reducing stress. TOT YOGA is the innovation of Khadi Madama, a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) and an IAYT, Yoga Therapist who is a pioneer in the field of applied therapeutic yoga.

I believe this is a fantastic DVD program to encourage bonding between you and your child in sharing and teaching the importance of exercise in your day to day life! This program will increase strength and flexibility, reduce stress and calm restlessness, and improve fine motor skills in your child!

The video features three distinct sections.

1. Toddlers Teach Yoga – parents learn to mimic children’s movements to do simple stretching and strengthening poses

2. Parents Teach Yoga – parents learn how to engage a child between the ages of 10 months and 3 years in focused and relaxing playtime exercise

3. Parent Yoga – parents follow a simple routine of strengthening and stretching poses intended to reduce stress and increase strength and flexibility

Tot Yoga can be found on Facebook and Twitter.

Tot Yoga DVD retails for $20 on Totyoga.com and Amazon.com.  Running time is approximately 40 minutes.

This beautifully hand crafted tea set will be cherished for years to come and passed down to the next generation as well!I’d love for you to get to know more about Andi and have asked her a few random question for my Etsy artisan meet and greet!

1.Why did you decide to start doing this on Etsy and how long have you been?

I decided to try Etsy to see if I could earn some extra money to help my sister with breast cancer expenses. I had no results and took everything from my Etsy site to donate to an auction in my sister’s behalf. In November ’09 I wanted to try Etsy again after receiving some tips from a friend. I have found that it is an effective creative outlet for me as I am always making one thing or another.

2. What do you enjoy the most when creating your products?

Letting my imagination take me to what I thought before was impossible. I like figuring out how to make my ideas work. I don’t always know what the outcome will be when I dive into a project. I also like to listen to inspiring talks and music while creating.

3. Apart from creating things, what do you do?

I am a mom to 3 wonderful children. I volunteer in school and church as often as I can. I also love a good book and I’m a sucker for BBC movies based on classic English literature.

4. What inspires you?

I am inspired by what I see around me. I like to look at new style trends and popular color combination’s and see how they work together. Ultimately, Christ inspires me to reach and grow every day.

5.In five years you’d like to be…?

Pretty much more of the same that I’m doing now. My greatest desire is to be a loving mother and wife and to serve and help those around me.

Win it!
