Here’s what I love about these cards:

  • LOVE the photos of real kids doing yoga! The photos are large & on a distraction-free white background. This is especially great for kids who have special needs like Autism, ADHD or visual impairment.
  • Easy to follow directions for the pose & ideas for how to integrate it into classroon activities are on the back of each card.
  • The cards are well organized into color-coded categories which makes it easy to find the cards.
  • The 5½” x 8½” size of the cards is perfect for a group setting. I am so appreciative of YogaKids sending these to me to try out. They have been out for a while but I hadn’t gotten them because I thought they were big poster-size cards (based on the picture I had seen on their website with the mat: http://yogakids.com/tools-for-schools/tac-on-mat). In fact I had suggested they come out with 5″ x 7″ cards of all the poses in their book “YogaKids: Educating The Whole Child Through Yoga” (which is one of my faves)…. lol! This card deck was exactly what I was hoping for 🙂
  • Very sturdy storage box with an easy to open hinged top and labels on all sides (so no matter how you store it you can see what it is….. important when you have TONS of kids yoga materials like I do!)

Here’s a “sneek peek” at one of the cards:

    This looks great! I think these will be on my Christmas list! I have succeeded in getting my daughter’s kindergarten teacher stoked on kids yoga,and I hope to slowly infiltrate the entire staff one day.
