If I had been exposed to this video as a child, I would have been terrified of and subsequently avoided yoga for the rest of my life. Downward dogs would be less appealing than a teeth cleaning.
Off the subject, but these videos make me wonder how much money is wasted in television. I mean, really? They are paying a cast, crew, director, team of song writers, and this Yoga Farmer to make this. Seems like a waste of resources.
I find the lines—”I do yoga in a barn”, “Come play yoga with me now”—juxtaposed with a “yoga rooster”, random kid with a soccer ball, and all the hugs to be frightening. And amusing.
Is this really how we want to introduce yoga to our kids? Or are there better ways?
