Probably not one size fits all
PostedMay 24, 2012
I can see how this would be a 5 star product. However, if you do not fall into "average" size, this may not give you the best stillpoint pressure. I am tiny- 4'10", 95 pounds. The pressure points are too wide for me to achieve stillpoint status. I do manage to use this as a good neck & back alignment device. My husband is 6'3" and it is too small for him. I do think this is a great idea and I don't ever expect average adult size products to fit me. I hope the next generation inducer comes in an adjustable size, if that's possible. Two small foam golf balls work just as well- a tip from a rolfer.

Disappointing
PostedOctober 13, 2010
Purchased after reading the good reviews and I was disappointed. This video is more like a Yee family home video with little instruction on how to perform a correct pose, no smooth flow, some poses are too difficult for beginners. Not well organized. No prior pose instruction section, too fast flowing with some poses, too slow or too difficult with others. You'll need a yoga strap in the middle of this DVD without any prior instruction that you'll have to have one on hand- 4 just magically appear for the Yee family. I own several of Rodney's yoga DVDs and one other kids yoga DVD. This is a greatly inferior lesson to the norm. My kids (age 5,7,8) follow Rodney Yee's Yoga for Beginners much better and so do I. Family yoga may work for kids to horse around at home on a rainy day and offer a mini intro to yoga, but they will more likely learn incorrect form and tune out during this scattered and a tad dull video. The YMCA family yoga kids group rated this with 1 to 3 stars- that is another 40 opinions. I am a beginner to intermediate yoga mom and my kids are beginners. I would like to exchange this to check out other family yoga options but I automatically tossed the receipt and packaging because I love Rodney Yee and Gaiam and I honestly never expected a disappointment from either.

I need a yoga DVD for kids who are 11 and 14 yrs

Is the family yoga bu Rodney Yea just for little kids. What can I do to inspire my pre teens?
Thanks

I agree that preteens would be better off starting with an adult beginner's yoga video. This may be a bit childish for an 11 to 14 year old. There is no pose instruction offered for an older child to master, pose terms are inconsistent, the youngest child uses Simon Says. I felt as if I were watching the Yee family perform their home yoga routine without any regard for the viewer's learning and following along.
