Classroom Fitness, or C-Fit for short engages children with lively graphics and original music. Created by teachers for children in the classroom, this fitness program works in the living room too!
Exercise is one of the most important things that you can do to keep your mind, body and spirit in good health. It's especially important for children to start this healthy habit as early as possible. Healthy children grow up to become healthy adults. These videos will teach children how to relax in the midst of a chaotic environment and the importance of taking calm, deep breaths. It's the perfect addition to any educational or child-care program.
Unfortunately, children have less time for physical activity and more sedentary time than ever before. In addition to sixty minutes a day of sustained activity, children need physical activity breaks for ten minutes throughout the day to reverse the effects of being stationary for excessive amounts of time.
Not all children are athletic or enjoy competition, but all children have the need for regular physical activity. C-Fit will teach them tools that they can use for a lifetime of fitness.

Why Should Kids Practice Yoga?
Yoga can help improve a child's balance, flexibility, range of motion and strength. It can help them become more aware of their body's posture, alignment and patterns of movement.
Kids are naturally flexible and these videos will help them stay that way. Yoga poses safely stretch muscles and increase range of motion. A little stretching goes a long way and afterwards, your body will feel invigorated, yet relaxed and calm.
Nearly all yoga poses build core strength. Downward dog, upward dog, and the plank pose all build upper-body strength. Standing poses build strength in your hamstrings, quadriceps, and abdominal muscles. Overall, yoga is a complete muscle-building program!
Yoga helps you become more aware and balanced. The deepening and lengthening of your breath, improved posture, body awareness and the ability to quiet your mind and focus your thoughts all make yoga a vital part of a busy day.
