Give your independent-loving tweens the tools to develop healthy habits and positive life choices now and for years to come!

 

Tweens are in that tricky place between being little kids and teenagers. Their bodies are growing, and their emotions are soaring. They would rather spend more time with their friends than family, and these burgeoning relationships are becoming powerful circles of influence. And most importantly… they’re vying for independence!

So why not provide them the tools to help empower them to care for their minds and bodies in ways that will support them in:

  • becoming physically and emotionally stronger
  • building more resilience in the face of challenges
  • increasing focus and self-discipline that will ready them for middle school and beyond
  • learning flexibility and curiosity that extends to academics, relationships, and ways of viewing the world
  • nurturing balance in order to tackle their increasing responsibilities and changes in relationship dynamics 
  • building self-esteem to make healthy choices and deflect the pressures that they may experience 
  • foster self-confidence so they can achieve their goals

We created this very special pack to help you teach life skills as well as address the needs of our TWEENS!


1. Core Yoga Cards

Help improve posture and core strength by engaging abdominal muscles and fostering a strong physical and emotional foundation… so that they can feel empowered to make healthy decisions as well as be ready for increasing demands of activities and sports.

2. Balancing Yoga Cards

Teach them that balance is more than just standing on one leg. Balancing one’s body extends to their mind, helping them focus, eliminate distractions, and be present in the moment, thereby improving their relationships and academic success.

3. Yoga For Flexibility Cards

Nurture flexibility and share the benefits of learning to release tension in the body. A flexible mind helps them see things from a variety of angles and keeps them curious. A flexible demeanor helps them build resilience as they maneuver the ups and downs of school and life.

4. Hip-Opening Yoga Cards

Encourage insight of how the body and mind are intimately connected by sharing hip-opening poses—especially since tweens spend a lot of time sitting! Emotional stress, frustration, and anger gets stuck in the hips. By stretching this area, they are better able to dissipate everyday stresses and promote healthy circulation.

5. Standing Yoga Cards

Teach them that standing up and stretching regularly is a habit worth starting now to counter the ill-effects of sitting all day! Tweens in particular need to move. These poses are practical and highly beneficial ways to do so without getting on the floor. Taking a healthy break throughout the day—one that is packed with healthy, mindful movements—can help them easily return to the task at hand, feeling refreshed and focused.

6. Strengthening Yoga Cards

Promote building strength as their bodies are rapidly growing and developing. Strength training is an important skill regardless of whether or not they’re in sports. Increasing physical strength also teaches them to strengthen their resolve, strengthen what’s important to them, and boosts their self-confidence and sense of agency.

1. Core Yoga Cards for Kids

Help improve your child’s posture and strengthen their core muscles with these simple and fun core yoga poses for kids.

Great way to counter the ill effects of sitting all day in a classroom.

The deck of 46 colorful cards includes:

  • an index card listing the core poses in a logical sequence

  • detailed pose instructions
  • 20 cards with colorful illustrations of the core yoga poses
  • 20 matching description cards

3. Yoga For Flexibility Cards for Kids

Bend, stretch, and reduce stress with these fun and engaging yoga poses specifically to boost flexibility. 

Because poses that help loosen the muscles in our bodies can also reduce stress and anxiety, they are beneficial both physically and emotionally.

We hold a lot of tension in our bodies, and that tension only compounds emotional distress. These yoga postures can increase flexibility in our bodies, which makes us more flexible with our emotions, as well. When we’re flexible, we can be open to new physical activities that improve our physical and mental health.

These poses aim to increase flexibility in your shoulders, back, hips, and hamstrings.

Reduce stress while stretching and loosening up muscles.

Because hip-opening poses help loosen the muscles around the pelvis and lower back, as well as reduce stress and anxiety, they are beneficial both physically and emotionally.

Hip-opening yoga poses are known to release sadness, anger, and frustration. Children hold a lot of tension in their hips due to spending long periods of time sitting in desks. These yoga postures can challenge children in their yoga practice, while encouraging the release of negative emotions.

5. Standing Yoga Cards for Kids

Twenty standing yoga poses to practice anytime, anywhere!

This collection of standing poses was put together for grownups looking to share physical postures with children without having to get on the floor.

For example, these could be a good fit for use in the classroom, where there might not be a lot of room to move around, or someplace where you prefer not to touch the floor.

Or older children might feel too self-conscious to get down on the floor in front of their peers. These standing poses offer children a chance to move and flex their bodies after sitting for a long time, to give their brains a break, or to hold their balance to help to focus their minds. 

The deck of 46 colorful cards includes:

  • an index card listing the standing yoga poses in a thoughtful sequence
  • yoga teaching tips to confidently introduce these poses to tweens
  • detailed pose instructions
  • 20 illustrated cards showing the standing yoga poses

Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day - Workbook
Frances R. (Salt Spring Island, CA)
Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day

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!

Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day

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!

Earth Day Yoga Card Bundle

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!

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.
