Mikey Mike's Zoo Yoga
Mikey Mike teaches kids basic yoga poses and animal facts in a visually interesting DVD. This would be fun for a P.E. class, co-op, or even just a group of friends. If you have done yoga yourself, you will recognize the poses: meerkat, butterfly, ostrich, turtle, zebra, frog, camel crocodile, cat (cheetah), dog, giraffe, crane, and cobra. Children model the poses along with Mike, who is a certified yoga instructor, and he also touches on healthy snacks. The book shows the animals and a cartoon Mike doing the poses. A cute poem goes with each animal. It's a nice combination and reinforces the correct positions. A certificate of completion in the back of the book is a nice reward for learning all the poses. sc, 36pp. Runtime: 17 min.
