Fireflies Musical Yoga review and giveaway!

I am so excited to have the opportunity to share this music with you and your family. My kids and I were recently introduced to Fireflies Musical Yoga for Kids. We have made a point to turn this music on at least once a day. If I happen to forget my little girl won't. She will walk over to the CD player and point to it until I turn the Fireflies Musical Yoga on. Our favorite song is "Dance for the Sun". My son loves when it sings, "Feet jump back just like a frog". He thinks it is so funny to jump like a frog. My daughter is one years old and really can only do the "downward dog" pose, but she loves watching me and my son practice the yoga moves and tries her hardest to dance with the music. Fireflies Musical Yoga has given me the opportunity to practice healthy yoga moves with my kids and given us the quality time that we are always trying to find.
I love working out, or I try to love working out. I have never gotten into yoga, but when you are doing it with your kids it is so fun. I was a little nervous since I wasn't all too familiar with it, but with the CD they included a booklet with little drawings which gave you visual examples of the poses. It was also very helpful that they included a live versions of the songs in the CD. These versions have Kira, the music artist, walking through the moves of the song and explaining the poses.
You can find more great reviews on Fireflies Musical Yoga here!

Brief background on Kira Willey, the Fireflies Music creator:
Kira Willey began playing violin at the age of five. As an adult she taught herself guitar and mandolin, and has been writing songs from the time she was a teenager. Before having her own kids, Kira taught music to young children in New York City, where she found that the most fun and effective parts of class were when the children were able to get up and jump, dance, and move. Having practiced yoga for ten years, Kira had the idea to combine music and yoga as a way to fully engage kids - giving them the wonderful benefits of yoga, plus the joy and benefits of exposure to different styles of music.

Giveaway: One winner will receive their own copy of "Dance for the Sun Yoga Songs for Kids" CD. This includes the small booklet with words and photos of the yoga poses.

"Caterpillar Caterpillar" has got a beat! Did you know that the Eric Carle book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" book is 40 this year? Would be a great song for those celebrations.
