The poses on these jumbo cards were very easy to follow, thanks to clear descriptions and up to five drawings to demonstrate each move, the testers said. Aviva Rose, who had never tried yoga before, said this 'colorful' deck was her favorite because the directions had pictures to make them crystal clear. --The New York Times
Yoga Pretzels is a fantastic way of spending quality time with my kids. Together, we exercise our bodies and minds leaving us feeling energized and refreshed! I'd highly recommend it to anyone with children. --Catherine Zeta-Jones

I much prefer the Yoga Pretzel deck, because they are twice the size of the others. Also, the Pretzel deck shows cute drawings of different children doing the poses and the Kids Deck only shows unisex stick figures, which is less exciting for the kids. The larger size of the cards, makes them easier for kids to see the pose and hold. They are very colorful and lively, and will be the only cards I use for class now.
Another big difference between the two decks is that the Yoga Pretzel deck contains cards with many yoga poses, and other cards with games and breathing exercises. The Kids Yoga Deck only has cards for poses, and no games.
I really recommend these cards for parents to use at home with their children. Children can use them on their own too, and just mimic the kids on the cards.
The pictures are memorable and make the poses clear. The titles of the poses are all kid-friendly (Rock, Airplane, Bunny Breathing, Arrow, Tree etc.). Each card has "mood" words that go with the pose.
The children can pick two cards before school or bed, and then we do the poses together. Or, put them in a circle and play musical poses--when the music stops, you do the pose you landed on.
The cards come in a durable storage box, and are of good quality.
My only criticism would be that the instructions for the poses don't say how to get out of the poses, or how to move into another pose. With a little experience and imagination this is easy to overcome, so it's not much of a drawback.
The color combinations are striking, drawings whimsical and clear, poses have a good range from easy for anyone to really challenging. Reasonable price too.
