Join Ada in this charming story as she does her yoga calm down sequence before bed. This is a sweet, whimsical pose card set, designed like an e-book with a cute story that incorporates yoga poses. While the story is set around bedtime, the sequence can actually be used anytime, especially when you need a calming activity or a change of pace. Whether you're a parent, grandparent, teacher or therapist, our Rest-Ready story of getting ready for bed will keep the children focused and entertained while doing yoga! This makes for a fun activity at school on a special day like "pajama day", or if children are home doing distance learning. It is a wonderful way to introduce the idea of self-calm and bring an awareness to activities that help children calm themselves or ease anxiety during a stressful time.

Yogalore's Getting Rest-Ready: Calming Yoga Pose Cards is a fun way for children and grown-ups to practice yoga together. These colorful polka dot-bordered 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 as the perfect bedtime story to relax and unwind after a busy day. They're great for a quiet activity anytime or to introduce your child, client or classroom to yoga. It's also a wonderful family activity for all ages. See below for more benefits of yoga.

This set includes:

1 cover card

1 card “How to Use These Cards”

1 card "Let's Get Rest-Ready"

20 cards for the story that includes poses throughout the story

1 Rest & Relax/Rest-Ready pose card

The cards consist of photos with a child doing yoga poses. It's told in a story form and has two calming activities (one "make and take"-type item, and one writing/drawing activity if age appropriate).

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). If you want more than one image per page when printing, you MUST change your printer settings. You can adjust the size in your printer settings to customize the cards for your needs. The reason I only have one image per page is to ensure better quality images when printing.

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.

If you have any questions, please contact me and I will get back with you as soon as possible.
