- Super Stretch is a fun and engaging tool to teach kids simple breath and yoga movements. The videos of kids are great and make learning yoga look easy!Mary Jo Kreitzer, Ph.D. – Founder & Director, University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality & Healing
- The Adventures of Super Stretch is an engaging, fun, and effective means of introducing children to the myriad benefits of fitness through yoga. Kids find a captivating program illustrated by a colorful cast of characters. But without knowing it, they’re gaining essential tools for their bodies and minds – stretching and strengthening their muscles, improving their balance and posture, relaxing with deep breathing, and learning self-awareness. As we approach the challenges of childhood obesity, anxiety and depression, and the general trend toward sedentary lifestyles, we would do well to consider this program. It is a tremendous guide and model of healthy ways to move our bodies and, just as importantly, calm our minds.Christopher Foss, M.D. – Family Physician
- We love The Adventures of Super Stretch App! I put it on my iphone and iPad and my girls, who are 2 and 4 years of age, can’t get enough of it. The yoga poses are introduced by adorable cartoon characters, encouraging kids to stretch like monkey, hop like a frog, and fly like a butterfly. Followed by clips of real children demonstrating the yoga positions. This allows my kids to easily imitate and practice the yoga moves. The content is age appropriate and the messaging is very positive, encouraging, and fun. The app is easy to navigate and my 2 year old can scroll through it independently. As a pediatrician, I am always looking for resources that help children become more physically active and improve their body awareness. Since you can put it on your phone, kids can practice yoga anywhere and anytime – at home, at grandma’s house, in the park. I will definitely be recommending this app to the families that see me in clinic.Betsy Schwartz, M.D. – Pediatric Endocrinologist & Mom
- We LOVE the app! Lucy & June have been playing it over and over… doing the moves! It’s so cute, positive, and age appropriate!Betsy Schwartz, M.D. – Pediatric Endocrinologist & Mom
- My 5-7 year old students love Super Stretch! It immediately gets them up and moving as they imitate both the live action kids and the engaging animated characters! Playful movement interspersed throughout the day is so important to young children’s brain development—Super Stretch leads kids on a yoga adventure that they can do independently or with their parents. The Super Stretch app will be first on my ‘best educational media’ list on my parent website page!Ann Griffin, Early Childhood Educator – Hamline University & St. Paul Public Schools
- Super Stretch transforms yoga into a magical and highly engaging experience for children.Barry Kudrowitz, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Product Design – University of Minnesota

The Adventures of Super Stretch app was developed by Jessica Rosenberg, an industrial designer and 500 E/RYT national yoga educator, plus an incredible team of creative app developers. Jessica’s love for yoga, inspiration from her students and desire to offer children accessible wellbeing tools helped bring Super Stretch to life.
The app was created for everyone – young to old, layman and educators – to teach the immeasurable benefits of yoga. Yoga is a powerful physical discipline. In the ten years of teaching thousands of wellness classes, Jessica has seen incredible transformations. An estimated 17.5 million adults practice yoga. As of 2007, there were over 1.5 million children practicing yoga.
The scientific community is coming out with more and more research statistics on how yoga is helping children with issues like obesity, diabetes and asthma. And yoga has been proven beneficial in teaching positive cognitive skills for a variety of different special needs populations, from physical disabilities, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders. The physical practice of yoga provides a healthy outlet to calm the nervous system reducing stress and teaching kids how to relax. The mindfulness and breathing aspects of yoga offer children skills for dealing with emotions giving them an ability to understand their feelings and relate to others. The balancing and standing postures help kids with sensory integration issues, which help to provide structure and discipline in their development. Yoga helps cultivate good character traits like trusting and respecting themselves and others.
Super Stretch is an educational yoga tool to use and teach the fun of physical activity and breathing to children. They will use the skills of self-awareness, self-esteem and self-regulation that they learn from this app as a foundation for the rest of their lives.
