Hi,

My girl is 31 months old. Im teaching her swimming, we visit the pool around 2 times a wk. We jog/walk 2km about 2 times a wk. She walks alot when we are out and hardly uses the stroler. She ride her tricycle once a while. I m thinking of teaching her some gymnastics or even yoga. Any one doing it? Any good handbook or DVD recomendation?  Thanks.

If you're already familiar with yoga, you might want to try this:
http://www.amazon.ca/Itsy-Bitsy-Yoga-Toddlers-Preschoolers/dp/1600940080
- it's got great reviews! There are also several other good finds on amazon with lots of reviews.

Also, I'm not sure how you feel about video games, but for the days when it's too cold to go out, something like this (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000NWU9NI/?tag=mall02-20) might be fun!

Hey thank you! but i think my son has in him gymnastics.... he was first exposed to it when he was 1yr old by a  6yr old cousin of his, and since 14 o 15months on hes been doing rolls and before he turned 2 he was doing perfect rolls without hands! and always talk abt being a gymnast but we dont have any programs for toddlers or small children! Sad Now I guess can learn to try these at home!

I wish I could do more physical stuff with my oldest. It rains a lot here and because I also have a baby we are always on her schedule. I can't go to the pool or anything with 2 kids. I'm only 1 mommy, LOL. So if anyone does find any sort of gymnastics fun to do around the house or in the yard I would love to know about it. Im about to go google some : )

Niniedney,

How old is your baby? There is a baby carrier created by a Canadian mom especially made for in the pool - that way you have hands free for the older! If your interested, let me know and I'll find the info!

That's a neat idea. I've never heard of anything like that. But my youngest is 7 mos, and depending on how expensive those are and how long she would fit in it, I might as well just wait til they are both old enough to be put into a class. I've never read the doman book, but I've heard great things about the toddler swimming classes. I will google it right now : ) thanks  Karma for you

All I've done is put up a door frame bar (like in Doman's book) and my dad built my son a balance beam (I wanted it to be like Doman's but Dad took a different route - either way, my son loves it). 

Thanks for the videos and site suggestions!

anything else the Doman book suggests that can be used.  I have literally just started with simple exercises and am taking it one step at a time - I have still to  build a schedule around the exercising
