TO PARENTS: Yoga is a wonderful activity for children (see benefits below) and it's something the whole family can do together -- even if you have absolutely no experience with yoga. One thing I really like about yoga & movement card decks is that you can use them over and over again. Repetition helps with memory and movement helps children learn.

FOR TEACHERS: This resource is perfect for an interactive distance learning activity. Kids have really enjoyed doing yoga with their teachers while at home. Parents and siblings can participate too!!!! You can skip through the partner poses at the end if teaching remotely or social distancing in the classroom.

Yogalore's Yoga Pose Card Deck is a fun way for children and grown-ups to practice yoga together. These colorful, whimsical polka dot pose cards are great for an almost-anywhere activity, whether at home or on the go. The cards can be used alone, with prepared lesson plans, or even to go along with books you read to your child each day. They're perfect for games or to introduce your child, client or classroom to yoga. Movement helps children learn and retain the information they are taking in – and with yoga, they’re having fun while learning!

These pose cards include some facts about animals or other pose names. Some cards include tips for doing the poses (some alternatives too!), and many cards even have the benefits of the pose. There are partner poses and even one group pose!

This set includes:
1 cover card
1 card lists and explains the components of Yogalore classes
1 card “How to Use These Cards”
3 cards separating sections: Beginning Breaths, Moving & Grooving and Rest & Relax
44 pose cards (Beginning Breaths, Moving & Grooving (including 5 partner pose cards) and 1 Rest & Relax pose
50 cards total

Ways To Organize:
*Keep them uncut and put in sheet protectors (this is what I do -- I print 16 on a page and use them at-a-glance during my classes)
*Cut and put in a recipe-type storage box
*Cut and put on a ring for easy access and usage
*Cut and laminate for durability
*You can also download to your tablet/mobile device to always have on hand in addition to/instead of printing.

Yoga has so many benefits, including but not limited to:
*Relaxes and alleviates stress
*Builds self-confidence and self-esteem
*Increases physical activity
*Builds strength, balance, and coordination
*Increases ability to focus
*Increases body awareness and overall muscle tone

*****Printing Tips & Options*******

Each card is approximately 3.75"W x 4.75"H in size (designed for 4 cards fit on a standard 8.5" x 11" piece of paper). You can adjust the size in your printer settings to customize the cards for your needs.

You can print more on a page for smaller cards (drop down menu in "More settings" where it says "Pages per sheet") and it will give you other options for how many cards you would like on a sheet, you can also change the scale and increase that number so the cards are slightly larger and closer together.

NOTE: In most of the photos I have printed the cards on white cardstock and rounded the corners. I use the cards for class and the kids love them (many of them are featured on the pose cards!)

If you have a question, please contact me -- I'm happy to answer any questions or clarify something.
