Yoga cards for kidsYoga Cards for Children - A fun and inspiring deck of 28 cards to get little yogis moving and laughing.

Each card depicts an original illustration of a yoga pose and the animal/shape that inspired it. Each pose is accompanied by a short poem to inform, engage and lift the young spirit.

Why this deck of yoga cards?

In this exploration of yoga for children, we have focused on the playful, experiential aspects of learning yoga. With minimal instruction, fun poems, and beautiful images we are inviting little ones not to get theoretical but instead to feel their bodies taking the shape of animals and objects from the natural world.

At this stage we are not concerned with precision in alignment or perfection in execution. From our over 20 years experience of working with children, we have gained tremendous respect for their innate intelligence in relating to their bodies- both in moving and in tuning into sensations.

The poses we offer are not advanced and don’t necessarily need the guidance or help of an adult. Today children are not often given the chance to learn a new skill on their own. These cards offer this unique opportunity. We hope that the little yogis will feel comfortable doing the practice on their own or with a friend. And maybe  adults will be enticed to join in the fun!
