I think this kid-led atmosphere is really appealing for kids to watch and it definitely made my son [Ethan, age 3 ½] want to participate. The yoga positions aren't overly complicated ones, and Haley does a great job of demonstrating them, making it really easy to follow along. This DVD is a great tool for getting your kids up and moving, and if they're new to yoga, I think this would be a great introduction. The workout itself is fairly short, only 20 minutes long, so they aren't going to get bored and lose interest. Ethan actually asked to do it twice this afternoon! --Growing a Baby Reviews

Haley is impressively poised for her young age. Not only does she lead the class with confident authority, but also throughout the practice, she compliments her participants and encourages them to pay compliments to each other as well....I have no question that this yoga class would appeal to children, although I believe that the age range on the DVD starts a bit too low; I'm not sure that the session would hold a four-year-old's attention. For slightly older kids, however, especially in a small group setting such as a classroom, this DVD would be an ideal tool for fun, flexibility, and focus. --Beth Cholette, PhD, Metapsychology Online Reviews

The children in the DVD are young and appear to just be your average kids doing yoga. To me that is important because it made our children more apt to try the workout....[My kids] felt comfortable trying new things because the children in the DVD lost their balance and simply performed the moves as one would expect from young children. It was very real, which was a huge positive. --Mommy Mentor, From One Mommy to Another
