Description: The Kids’ Yoga Deck teachers yoga poses and related activities that have been specifically designed and adapted for children (Buckley, 2006). Each card encourages children to try a different activity, pose, or breathing exercise. The cards are color coordinated based upon skill and experience level, with instructions as to which cards to use first. Each card includes a picture of the activity, a description, and ideas of other related activities.
Use: The Kids’ Yoga Deck can be used by teachers and librarians for groups and individuals. Cards and activities on the cards can be used as part of a larger storytime program, or a set of cards and the associated ideas can comprise one whole program centered on yoga, breathing, stretching, and/or movement. Since the deck is a set of flashcards, they could also be used in programs/games where participants draw a card, and then the group has to do the activity or pose on the card.
