This review is from: Yoga Pretzels: 50 Fun Yoga Activities for Kids and Grownups (Yoga Cards) (Cards)
As a primary teacher I can highly recommend this publication to any colleagues looking for ideas for yoga activities - I've just used them with an 'Golden Time' group of mixed ages (P1 - P7) and are they were a huge success. Despite the range of ages, and a couple of children with mild physical problems, everybody was able to attempt the poses with a good level of success.
The pack is divided into different, colour-coded categories (breathing; standing postures; back bends; forward bends; games; balances; etc). This allows you to adopt a pick-n-mix approach to put together a session. Each week I choose the sections we are going to work from (I start with breathing and a balance, finish with a 'time-in' activity, and then choose 2 or 3 other categories to make up the middle section) then let volunteers choose a card from each section. This children enjoy feeling that they've designed the session.
The pack is of excellent quality and the cards are durable, colourful and very engaging. One side features an illustration of the pose and on the other clear, simple instructions. I've found them very easy to use, although I have some yoga experience which, while not essential, I think does help.
