Oh, wow! These cards are seriously awesome! I am a Certified Yoga Instructor, without a clue how you teach kids. So I purchased this set and just started my kids' classes (2nd graders) last week and they LOVED this! It was so easy to have both a visual (on each card) of how to actually do the pose, as well as an easy sequence flow. I added in opposite sides, and they loved the animals. Needless to say they had so much fun! One student thanked me and her teacher for letting them do this. It was AWESOME! Highly recommend this product for anyone attempting to teach kids yoga in an engaging and super easy manner.
How lovely, thanks for sharing, Marissa!
So happy to hear that your students loved the yoga cards.
You have made our day!
I’ve been using these cards for awhile now and they are so wonderful. so many adults these days are just learning and I think we all may benefit by going through the child - I have the grown up cards laminated too 😍😉so I’ve had a lot of success myself with these and with my son over the years he’s now 8. I put mine in a binder so I could carry it and demonstrate and pass it around, but it comes with options to print in different ways hopefully you can see here. I have some cards laminated and then I even have a stapled hand out of one of her mindfulness decks for kids. I have yet to be disappointed let alone not extremely impressed with every product from these wonderful women.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Jill!
We're so happy to hear that the Chakra Cards for kids and adults are valuable to you.
Really appreciate you,
If you're buying with the idea to print, I wouldn't. These were not considerately designed for that. The aspect ratio isn't 3x5 or 4x6 (common index-card sizes), and the solid dark-color backgrounds on some cards is a major waste of ink, and it's on text-only cards, which could just as well be black-on-white. Disappointed for sure. If the creator would like a design consult so it's made for print, let me know.
Thank you for your honest feedback!
When we create our yoga cards, it's always a balance between aesthetics and printing. That's why we have the yoga pose cards with white backgrounds. In this case, you're right, the dark blue on the instruction cards will use up a lot of ink. Many people also view the yoga cards from their devices or show on Smart Boards. We'll talk as a team to see what we can do with these particular cards.
Feel free to email us directly with any other feedback.
These cards are wonderful! I'm a seasoned kids yoga teacher, and have not found any cards that combine postures with shapes, and that are as colorful and specific as these to use with preschoolers. I also love the ability to download them. My only suggestion is that if you are purchasing them, when you print them, the solid blue background cards will use ALOT of your color ink. I only printed the index, and did not print the rest of the SOLID blue cards. These cards are well worth the small price of 7.50. I think you will love them!
Thank you so much, Alice! Love it!
Thank you so much, Denise! Love it!
Excellent resources. I downloaded and printed and used in my kids yoga class. Was great and engaging and fun.
Thank you so much, Laura! Love it!
The Yoga Pack helps a lot to add to new brain break activity
Thank you for doing a great job!
Thank you so much, Caroline! Really appreciate it!
I love the yoga cards. They are well made. I ordered them for myself because I have trouble with arthritis. They had some of the best chair exercises available online. I wanted the cards because I can mix and match the yoga poses easily to accommodate my physical limitations.
Thank you, Sybille! So wonderful to hear!
Thank you so much, Francine! So happy to hear!
I teach 3/4 year olds and I am so excited to use these games in my class this year. I will have to make a few adjustments because - they can’t read!!! - but, I’m used to that aspect of using tools for older students.
Thank you so much, Judy! What fun!
This is a lovely story. I used it in my childrens yoga class. They loved it.
Thank you so much - how wonderful!
he children like the materials, and respond to them well. They also love the stories. Myself, as always, I particularly appreciate the drawings. We have added to the emotion of feeling bad about yourself, because it is more common for the children I have worked with to be feeling bad for other reasons than low self esteem. Sometimes we feel really 'bad' (more like feeling ill - ‘sickened’ !!!) because we have done an awful thing, acting unthinkingly. Sso that we have hurt someone else's feelings or lost their trust in us.
We don't find it quite appropriate to encourage ourselves to feel good about ourselves in those circumstances - because our 'high' opinion of ourselves makes us feel disappointment in how we behaved. We want to hold ourselves to a higher standard than that.
In our language, we want to return to being our Better Self. We know we can! So "restorative justice" is what we want to DO. We want to feel better about ourselves, yes - but even more than that, we want to make up for what we did, we want to make the other person or people feel better, feel OK. We want to heal harm, restore trust, and have EVERYONE feeling better.
We love doing "restitution" - fixing what went a bit wrong back there.
We also have a song that we sing: "May we be filled with loving kindness, May all be well, May we be peaceful and at ease, May we be happy." That's the last verse - before that, we replace the "we" with “May you be - - -,” singing to the person we harmed in some way, then we sing to ourselves using "May I be - - -". This helps us feel not so bad about what we went and did back then, when we felt tired, impatient, frustrated, or simply mean-mindedly cross! - or any of the feelings you deal with so well. We need to be “understanding’ about ourselves and each other. We are growing to understand that feelings come unexpectedly, but feelings can change and be gone too.
[All this arises from me having previously used feelings I called "Mad, Bad, Sad or Glad" - for ease of them writing them! We used to check in on how much of each of those we're feeling right now, or had coursing through us when an incident occurred earlier in the day. I saw that feeling Bad is a strong feeling to deal with. They don't think it is low self esteem, So - more like high self esteem! They feel Bad that they have let themselves down, is what I'd describe it as.
Sorry my review is so LONG!
As an Elementary School Counselor, I have found this resource to be both useful and beneficial for the students I work with. I work in a Kindergarten- Grade 5 Elementary School, and I have found this resource to be helpful in small group work, as well as individual 1:1 counseling situations.
Thank you for creating this useful tool for children!

I teach kids and youth yoga at schools and use the Kids Yoga Stories cards as visuals and for games. The Earth Day bundle was a great addition for our yoga sessions. The children engage and love the visual ideas, poses and add their own. We also use them to create a flow or start off conversations. Thanks Kids Yoga Stories!
We really enjoy the new ideas and Themes all suited for this time of year and more. Practice progress fun.
I like Giselle yoga cards. They have so many different options to offer and my students enjoy all the themes. They enjoy being characters from the cards. The yoga poses are simple and come with explanatory descriptions.
I have my pages in a binder, I’m excited to share this knowledge with my grandkiddos and volunteer opportunities within our community. Thank you
As a yoga teacher who is looking into getting yoga into the older elementary grades this product will be very useful. Looking forward to putting the ideas into practice.
This product has come in handy as I am currently teaching a Grade 3/4 split class and these are perfect for them.
As a Mom to a 12 year old these cards are fantastic to engage that age group into yoga!
I love this product! I have used it in a classroom and had the students pick one of three options given to them, colour them and tape them to their desks as a reminder throughout the day.
