Yoga Cards: Yoga Break for Children
Canadian educator, Irina Kazakevic, and her company Yoga Break for Children, have produced a set of 54 Yoga Cards that will be helpful for teachers wanting to practise yoga with their students. The 14 cm x 21.5 cm cards are housed in a sturdy, flip-top box and grouped into colour coded themed practices: Yoga can Help, Calm and Grounded, Energy Boosters, Emotionally Balanced, Heartfulness, Creative Juices, and Laser Focus. Each card has a clear image of a child demonstrating the pose on one side, and well-written instructions on the other side. Cards could be chosen to guide a day’s practice, and inexperienced teachers could hold the card with the image facing the students and read the instructions to cue the movements. As the class becomes more familiar with the poses, the cards could be displayed to guide the sequence of the session. Irina, a certified children’s yoga teacher, also offers courses for training yoga teachers. These yoga cards can be purchased on Amazon. yogabreakforchildren.com/yoga-can-help/
