The Best Kids Yoga Books & DVDs


How freaking cute is this picture?!  It was drizzling on this day and Penelope said she wanted to go outside and do yoga in the rain.  Who am I to say no?  So for about ten minutes she was doing mountain, warrior and tree poses, outside, in the rain, naked.

I am a Certified Yoga Instructor and a Certified Itsy Bitsy Yoga Facilitator and I have been teaching yoga on and off since I was 18 years old.

I have read tons of yoga books and watched even more yoga DVDs.  I love trying them out, learning new poses, or picking up on phrases that teachers use to describe the poses.

I often get asked what books and DVDs I recommend, so I thought I would give a run down of my favorite books and DVDs for kids.

Books:

Itsy Bitsy Yoga for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Yoga Deck Cards

The ABC Yoga for Kids 

Little Yoga: A Toddler’s First Book of Yoga

DVDs:

Yoga Motion

Yoga Journal’s Family Yoga

Wai Lana’s Little Yogis

  1. This post could not have come at a better time! My son LOVES yoga day at his preschool each month and I’ve been searching for something we could do at home together. There are certain times of day when we all need to drop what we are doing and do a little yoga to keep the meltdowns at bay! Thank you!

  2. That. Is. Adorable.

    Any yoga suggestions for adults? Are these above suggestions good for mommy and toddler to do together?

    • Yes, I mean its not gonna be a hot yoga class where you feel like you got a great workout and plenty of “me” time, but all the poses are good for adults and are perfect for a mid day mommy stretch break.

  4. Awesome! It was so cute to have our 2 and 4 year olds try and follow along with us doing yoga this morning. I love that there are things aimed to their level! Thanks for the post!

  5. I have noticed my 15mo daughter doing poses and am going to get some of the books you mentioned so thank you for the recommendations! Does she need her own mat? I have seen kid sized mats but I don’t know if that is a necessity or splurge – she is primarily on builder grade carpet (not very plush but not hardwood floors) – or could I just cut up one of my mats into a smaller size?
    Thank you for all the time and effort you put into you blog. I’ve been a reader for just over a year and still get truly excited when a new post pops up in my reader.

    • It’s not necessary but if you get one it could be a fun thing, to give your daughter ownership and make her feel like a big girl with a mat just like you. But a towel or nothing will work just fine too. Thanks so much for being a loyal reader!!

  6. My daughter loves Yuvi – Story Aerobics for Kids. It is a mixture of exercises that kids do with main character. It is fun. It is also on Youtube or https://www.facebook.com/YuviStoryAerobics.

  7. My daughter loves yoga and she enjoys it even more with the yoga DVDs and eBooks and iPad apps. And the post was nice. Thanks for the post!
