Thousands of years ago, an Indian sage named Patanjali wrote a philosophical text called The Yoga Sutras. Two of the eight limbs were the Yamas and Niyamas, which provide us with a guide for us to make good choices in life. This moral code of conduct includes values and behaviors like happiness, honesty, and gratitude to help us be responsible people both to ourselves and others around us.

The following cards can help integrate these yoga principles into character-education or social-emotional-learning (SEL) lessons.

For each Yama and Niyama you are provided:

  • a question (thoughts)
  • mantra (words)
  • yoga pose (actions)

For children, a deeper understanding of themselves and clarity of what values and behaviors are important can be part of building a healthy life.

The deck is divided into Outward Behavior (Yamas) and Inward Behavior (Niyamas):

Outward Behavior How we behave toward others

  • AHIMSA Meaning: Nonviolence
  • SATYA Meaning: Truthfulness
  • ASTEYA Meaning: Non-Stealing
  • BRAHMACHARYA Meaning: Ethical Behavior
  • APARIGRAHA Meaning: Greedlessness

Inward Behavior How we care for ourselves

  • SAUCHA Meaning: Purity/Cleanliness
  • SANTOSHA Meaning: Contentment
  • TAPAS Meaning: Self-Discipline
  • SVADHYAYA Meaning: Self-Study
  • ISHVARA PRANIDHANA Meaning: Surrender/Devotion

Instantly download these 49 colorful Yamas and Niyamas digital yoga cards to learn through movement in your home, classroom, or studio.

This deck includes an index card, yoga tips, pose instructions, 10 yoga pose cards, 10 mantra cards, 10 question cards, and 10 yoga pose description cards. The illustrations feature multicultural yoga kids from seven countries.

Saint Patrick’s Day cards

Awesome ! I used in my St.Pattys day themes class and the kids LOVED them and they helped me create an easy story featuring the different Irish themed animals, instrument, and people. Super Cool ... I plan to buy many many more !

Fantastic Book

My weekly class loves the story and asks me to read it all the time!!

Just What We Needed!

We use the Zoo Animal Yoga cards in our classroom of elementary kids with autism. We read books with animal characters and then retell the stories with our yoga moves. It's super fun and interactive.

Chinese New Year Yoga Cards for Kids

These cards were exactly what I was looking for and the poses were easy to follow and so much fun for my kids! I look forward to doing this activity again next year.

Australia Yoga Cards for Kids

It is hard to find Australian related content in programs for kids, particularly on the internet so I was delighted to find the Australia Yoga Cards For Kids that I can incorporate into my program and thereby make it more relevant to my students.
Thanks Giselle
