We are so super excited to announce that our beautiful Yoga and Affirmation Cards for Kids are now available for pre order!
These instructional yoga card decks have been photographed and designed in a playful, yet contemporary style especially for kids. Each card is supported by a professional step-by-step yoga instructions and has an uplifting affirmation to inspire confidence, motivation and self love.
We decided early on to create these with real photos of children doing yoga (with a few of me too!) as opposed to cartoon characters or diagrams. We wanted kids to be able to relate to other children’s bodies doing yoga. It was also important for us to promote yoga as a vibrant outdoor activity that didn’t require any specialist equipment. Yoga can be done off the mat and enjoyed outside in nature. Anytime, anywhere.
To this end, all images have been shot out in nature and (apart from the few images of me) totally mat free! 🙂
Our cards are an excellent tool for educators and parents to teach yoga and help spread the message of mindfulness, encouraging kids to stay grounded and find their inner strength.
These cards can be used to create playful and imaginative yoga stories, turning the poses into characters, animals, natural environments, landmarks or anything you choose. By using five or so of your favourite poses, a fun yoga adventure could be a great way to introduce yoga to your little yogis day.
Our deck can also be used just as affirmation cards. Simply choose a card to use the affirmation as your daily mantra for a fresh, more positive start or finish to the day!
With a focus on mindfulness, some of the cards have been designed to encourage short little games that act as tools to aid in managing energies and creating calmness, focus and stillness. Great to have safe in your bag for those moments that may need some extra help. For example, the “Volcano Pose” card. A small sequence that includes a pranayama (breathing) technique to help centre a child after a stressful or unsettled energy outburst.
