Yoga Cards for Teaching to Kids
My own most-used cards are these digital cards that I created with the help of an amazing artist,
These pose cards were created specifically for Kumarah Yoga, since the populations of kids at my school are more diverse, I wanted cards with images that reflect who my students are. You’ll find more students of color, kids with headdresses, hijab, different hair styles, and clothing. Check them out here.
(These are Found on Amazon!)
These are my new favorite cards, hands down! The drawings and images are SO beautiful. The colors are bright, the kids are multicultural, the backgrounds are adorable. I just LOVE them. They are super sturdy cards, and slightly larger as well (like the Yogi Pretzels). The poses are little different, too, so it was nice to get this one for the variety of cards. It was great for promoting more storytelling with new pose names for each letter!
Our favorite books for teaching kids yoga and mindfulness:
If you are in a classroom, library, or another space that does not have quite enough room for a bunch of yoga mats, check out these velcro Sit Spots. I stick them on my carpet in a circle and it gives every kid a visual of where they need to keep their body.
Even if it’s one foot on your circle during warrior 1, they are so helpful! I personally like the circles best, but they have a few different shapes and colors. They are super sticky, too, which is great.
If you have found any kids yoga cards online (Like the Kids Yoga Cards for the Perfect Yoga Flow), you may want to print them off at some point. If and when you do, definitely get this laminator so that you can keep those cards nice and usable for a long time!
