In the hour-long magical journey called Banana Yoga, Shana Banana combines two worlds--music and yoga--into a fun, interactive program containing original songs that are designed to introduce children yoga and all of its fitness and stress-relieving benefits. Teaching children yoga through music is what sets Banana Yoga apart from other childrenÂs yoga products on the market.
A recent review in Yoga Journal states Â(Banana YogaÂs) approach is to merge music and yoga, so that children learn the practice through song as an alternative form of exercise and stress relief.Â Another review in The School Library Journal states ÂSinger-songwriter Shana "Banana" Smith has created a welcome addition to the field of exercise videos for children.Â
Yoga builds self-esteem and a positive self-image. ChildrenÂs yoga is being added to the curriculum in public & private schools across the country. Studies show that childrenÂs retention rates in the classroom and overall fitness are improved with yoga. Banana Yoga is a great rainy-day activity in the classroom and at home.
Since its release, Banana Yoga has developed into an expanding program with study guides and educational workshops for parents, yoga teachers, classroom teachers and of course, kids! Exciting additions to the Banana Yoga program will be added throughout the upcoming year, with more videos in the planning stages.
Shana BananaÂs Banana Yoga VHS/DVD and other award-winning products can be purchased at fine retailers, on Amazon.com or through Shana BananaÂs website at http://www.ShanaBanana.com.
