I teach yoga to people of all ages, including my son's preschool class of three year-olds. I think this set is truly wonderful. :-)
I guess I'm writing in response to the oh, please review. That parent might wish to take a second look from a different perspective. I am an instructor and know the value of good instruction with a qualified teacher, but kids just naturally do yoga! Parents can use common sense to help kids practice safely at home. This deck stimulates creativity. Yoga for kids is FUN!!! So many things in life are serious enough. I am serious about my own practice, but light-hearted, too. I have Babar's Yoga for Elephants (LOVE IT!), but that is a little too "old" for my son, as yet. This deck he has been using since his third birthday. The illustrations are light-hearted and bright! The names reflect things found in nature and our world. The author named parsvottanasana "pyramid" and pascimottanasana as "river" in this deck. She uses imagery i.e., "Imagine that your legs are the sandy river bottom and your spine is the water flowing down." Pyramid works! Your legs need to be really strong and stable to hold this pose, like a pyramid. Maybe the cutesy name referred to was "upside-down gorilla." (The deck is recommended for ages 4 and up. I wouldn't use some of the names with my adult classes, unless the intention of the class were PLAY!, maybe! but this deck is intended for children. A lot of the names match the English translation of the Sanskrit.) The author knows that kids loooooove imaginative play! She gives suggestions for encouraging kids to use their imagination within the poses to get a real feeling for the poses as they practice.

These cards are very useful in structuring a class for children. The children enjoy seeing the brightly colored cards which show how it looks when doing the pose. You can make your own "string of poses" for the children to do, as the deck suggests, by picking a card from each color (rainbow string), or there are other "strings" suggested (basic string, sleepy string, energy string, friends string, calming down string, warm-up for sports string). I teach yoga to children ages 6-12 at a Youth Center, and I use these cards for every class. We mostly use the Rainbow String, except I often put the partner poses (a yellow card) at the end of a class to close it. That way, the children leave the class feeling a connection with one another. Often, I pick two poses in a particular color group (usually the light green and the red cards) to extend the class to a 30 minute time frame. There are really nice GAMES at the bottom of each card, listed after instructions for doing the pose. They are clearly bulleted, and I have found them to be very useful. The children are interested in these cards, and they like to shuffle them around and read them. They can offer input for class content. These cards spark their interest in yoga. I have many "yoga for children" books which I use as supplements occasionally, but this yoga deck forms the structure for the children's yoga classes. I would recommend it for home use also. These cards are easy to use, and they make yoga FUN for the kids!

I use the yoga deck in my 4th grade classroom with my 9 and 10 year old students. They LOVE it! It's a fabulous way to integrate a holistic and nurturing physical education program into my language arts curriculum. The cards are so easy to use that my students can use them independently and in small groups. A "must have" for all teachers!

What a beautiful and fun way to learn about Yoga. Great Matisse inspired graphics and color coded guides make this a very accessible route for children to be introduced into the wonderful world of Yoga. In this age of video game and media overload this deck promotes healthy exercise in a fun way. I wish I had been introduced to Yoga with a deck like this when I was young and effortlessly limber. Promoting the building blocks of good health, good spirit, and good muscle tone. A winner.

I am an OT in a school for developmentally disabled children, and this is a good tool for me to use when students need some movement. I especially like the picture of each stretch or pose; I can show it to my group and they do a good job of imitating it. The cards are on heavy stock and come in a nice easy-to-transport box. I highly recommend this product.

I am a yoga teacher and I work with children. This Yoga deck has been extremely useful and fun. The kids love to pick their cards and build their own sequence. The love to be able to look at the poses and try them.

The art is fantastic and children love the images and colors.

I highly recommend this deck, for teachers, parents and children

I use these cards three times a week in my classroom. it is so easy to make a yoga program just by picking out the cards. The children also help by pulling the cards by colors since thats how they come. So I can ask the kids to pick two blue, one green, and a purple. Then all we have to do is follow the steps and the short story on each cards. the picutres are simple too.
