Editorial Reviews

Review

Yoga brings ancient wisdom to the modern world in a way that no other discipline can. And this book conveys that wisdom to kids and grownups alike in a way that combines lighthearted humour with high purpose. --DEEPAK CHOPRA (My Daddy is a Pretzel)

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'm a kids yoga instructor, and use cards with my classes almost weekly. I'd been using the Kids Yoga Deck for years, and then I finally bought this deck.

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.

These cards are wonderful! We heard about them from a Yoga Kids instructor and our kids love them.

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.

I teach yoga to both adults & kids. I really liked these cards as a resource. I used the ideas for games on the backof the cards, for some of my kids' classes, & they worked well. I have also used the cards to show what the poses look like to the kids. The large size of the cards is a plus too.

The cards have great illustrations. I am disappointed in the names on each card. Many poses are called different names. I had planned to use these cards in a yoga class I teach for kids. However, the poses have new names that I have had to learn and teach the kids so that I use the cards. I would much rather teach the more well know name for each pose instead of a name that was created for one product.

Format: Cards
I like using Yoga Pretzels in my classes, they help me keep a kid-like mood. The kids love being able to pick a pose or two from the cards. They take time to study the drawings and find ways to share and cooperate. I love the "Time In" section-- the relaxation scripts work equally well for adults and children. Animal Friend is my favorite.

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.

I love these cards. My kids play with them without me, and I love to make sequences with them too. My Girl Scout troop loves to use them during our downtimes in meetings, they are such an awesome way to promote independant fitness! BUY THESE CARDS if you or your children love yoga!

I work with children who have disabilities (cerebral palsy, autism, down syndrome, etc). Every child has trully enjoyed these cards. On the back the pose is broken down into 4 organized steps. It's neat to watch the kids figure out how to pose themselves. I use them for stretching, attention and concentration, deep breathing to help calm, weight bearing/strengthening, and for social groups (there are partner poses as well). A few of the parents even purchased them for home!

I am a yoga teacher and mother and was looking for cards my daughter could use to
introduce her to yoga. I thought the poses would be more classical.
On the plus side, she can play the games when she gets older.
