For a final project in one of my classes in the Digital Media Design for Learning (DMDL) program at NYU, my partner (Michelle Lazarow) and I wanted to find out if young children with no yoga experience could learn basic poses simply by watching a segment instructed by Elmo. It is true that I can imitate Elmo’s voice quite well and thanks to EBAY, I ordered an Elmo costume exactly like those you see in Times Square. We presented the finished video with Elmo leading a yoga class to a group of preschool-aged children at Michelle’s school and were amazed by the results.
On this page, you can watch the actual video that we played for these young children as well as photos and the final research paper written for our course.
