Can a Tablet Actually Get Kids Moving?
Tablets are typically a source of screen time for kids. During screen time the child is still, the eyes hold a fixed gaze, and the image on the screen is moving. So as a teacher and a mom, I’m thrilled to encourage your kids to use the Sing Song Yoga® kids yoga app to transform their screen time into some “music and movement” time.
This whiteboard animation and jingle are a fun way to say the same thing…
When kids move, play and sing they use their brains well.
Building their brains is naturally fun.
Paving the brain roads and making connections
A well-developed brain makes learning easy and fun!
But too often now kids sit with one of these.
Which at times can be a bit of a concern.
So let’s use tablets to get kids moving
So we can see the benefits of moving return
Experts find that yoga helps kids
With focus, awareness, coordination and more.

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!

Although studies have been done on adults, this is one of the first to look at yoga and kids. She is following patients through an eight-week study to see if practicing yoga can help reduce stress and lessen the severity and frequency of headaches in kids.
