Sing Song Yoga Kids Yoga App – Dad Testimonial

Thank you Bill Badran for sharing your family’s experiences with the Sing Song Yoga kids’ yoga app! We really appreciate you taking the time!

Here’s what Bill has to say…

“I’m a proud parent of a six-year-old daughter who really loves Sing Song Yoga… She loves it. She is able to follow along with ease and she’s really focused with the song format to each move… Now she’s created her own profile and she’s organized it the way she wants it (the poses within the app)…We ended up getting her her own yoga mat and now my wife and daughter are doing yoga side by side…Even my two-year-old is following along… it’s great for all ages…” ~ Bill Badron

Thanks a million Bill!

Sing Song Yoga Kids Yoga App – Teacher Testimonial

Thank you Kathy for sharing your experiences with using the Sing Song Yoga Kids Yoga App with your students! We so appreciate you taking time out of your busy life to do so!

Click on the video below to hear what Kathy has to say about her experiences:

“I’m a reading specialist in an elementary school. I service developing readers grades K-5th. I started using the Sing Song Yoga app this year as a way to transition my students from their regular classroom into the more intense instruction that I give them. For the first few minutes of our thirty minutes together we [do one of the poses]. The students are completely relaxed and very quiet. Then we go into our instruction and I can tell as a result of the Sing Song Yoga that they are much focused and calm and centered. My students enjoy it so much that when we walk… to my classroom… they ask me… what pose are we going to do today? I highly recommend the Sing Song Yoga [Kids Yoga] App to any age elementary student”

Thanks again Kathy!

Kids’ Yoga Helps With Body Awareness

I love witnessing my one-year-old twins discovering something brand new.  The other day I watched one of them pick up a small ball with one hand, hold it in the air, open his hand and joyfully watch the ball roll off the edge of his hand and fall to the floor – only to pick it up and do it a dozen more times.

Like my son, when something is new to us we pay attention to the most minute details.  We take in the information and time can sometimes seem to slow.  On the other hand, when we are doing something we have done an endless number of times, like robots we complete the task and often think to ourselves, “Wow I don’t even remember driving home,”  for instance.

As adults do, children often speed through their experiences, moving from one task to the next, paying no attention to what their bodies are doing – where their bodies end and another’s begins.

Kids’ yoga can replicate the mindfulness or attention necessary to complete a brand new task, which stimulates the brain in a positive way for learning.  Due to the focus needed to get into each pose, it can help children slow down to notice what they would not typically notice.  For instance, in “Dead Bug Pose,” a child might think, “now if I hold my foot on the side I can get the bottom of my foot more flat like I’m walking on the ceiling like a real bug.  If I pull my knees toward my armpits I feel more of a stretch in my back.”  This mindfulness can help them become more aware of their bodies on and off the mat.  Children can then better relate with the world around them and more thoroughly be present and more aware of their experiences.  And in turn, they may be more aware of the results of each of their decisions.  Just another one of the kids’ yoga benefits that we love!
