We continue our interview with Havona Madama the creator of Tot Yoga

Wednesday, December 9, 2009
Last week, I talked with Havona Madama of Tuesdays at Ten, Ltd. about her company's new DVD released December 2009 by Loft 49 Films, Inc. entitled TOT YOGA: Yoga for You and Your Toddler from 10 Months to 3 Years Old.

Inspired to fill a void in the marketplace and her own DVD library, Havona engaged Khadi Madama, a registered Yoga teacher and a Yoga therapist, registered with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).

Khadi is a pioneer in the field of applied therapeutic yoga, and the host of a cable TV show, Yours Truly Yoga. She was tasked with specifically designing a program to meet the needs of toddlers and their parents.

The Tot Yoga program does not expect you to follow a specific routine with your child. No two sessions are exactly the same. By allowing your child to direct part of the program there will be plenty of surprises to hold their attention.

Havona heavily stresses parent interaction throughout her Tot Yoga DVD. "The importance of giving parents of toddlers techniques to use rather than a strict program to follow was immediately apparent. It was also clear that the program had to provide fun, interactive exercise to reduce the frustration of being a toddler and the parent of a toddler."

There are many benefits to teaching Yoga to toddlers:

  • Promotes Calmness
  • Reduces Stress
  • Increases Confidence
  • Improves Concentration
  • Develops a Healthy Body
