  1. 4 out of 5

    :

    We absolutely love the cards! We can pace them better for our son’s attention span and he loves seeing the animals too.

    I give them a 4 out of 5. Only because I wished there were more poses in the deck.

    :

    I did another Memory game with an 11 year old yesterday–after studying the 12 cards for a minute, we put all of the animal cards face down (from the Goodnight Animal book) and then took turns holding the pose names while the other chose a card–we then had to try to remember where the animal matching pair was, if we got a pair we did the pose.

    We love doing our yoga poses at so many times during the day to “reset” the girls. However, I wasn’t keen on starting up a long yoga routine just before bed. Maybe just a few poses would be good. Therefore, using these yoga cards is great because we can choose how many poses we are going to do. I bought this yoga bedtime pack (book + cards) by Kids Yoga Stories. I am not affiliated with them just LOVE Giselle’s blog, routines and books. Her hubby is from Australia and hence why you see her Aussie themed books too and her in-laws stock some of her products here in Sydney. You will see me use these cards in my toddler Play with Food classes during either our “prepare to eat” routine OR as an activity at the end of class once we have had our “clean-up” time routine. They are PERFECT for ensuring a smooth transition in and out of the meal.

    I received the cards today, my son loves it. My son was born with hard of hearing and was diagnosed with Autism. I heard they did animal yoga in nursery and he loves animals so I searched on the internet and found your cards most suitable since he is a visual learner with great imaginative skills, this is a really fun activity we can do together.

    5 Things I Love About Them:

    1. The 3×5 Notecard size is small enough and light enough to keep in my yoga bag as an emergency “Oh No I Have Nothing Planned” Activity.

    2. The Index Card has a list of the poses in order from standing to relaxation as well as a color coded key showing the animal/yoga pose pair.

    3. Calming poses are sequenced well from active to relaxing yoga poses. They are all good poses to settle before bedtime or before relaxation time.

    4. The cards can be used individually, in a series, or as an animal matching game.

    5. They come in a sweet, mesh bag that keeps them together, but visible.

    As a yoga teacher, I think you will LOVE these cards as an addition to your classes. As a parent, I think you will LOVE how fun these will make bedtime.

    Just wanted to let you know that the Good Night, Animal World book and yoga cards were a hit! Thank you.

    The highlights of these has been the parents’ feedback … as their children show off their yoga moves to them. I was surprised, I didn’t think they were paying attention!

    I have shared this with my colleagues from down under, thank you.

    :

    I use the bedtime yoga cards in a Montessori preschool classroom of 14 students ages 2.5 to 5. In the school, we’ve read the accompanying Good Night, Animal World story and learned the poses together. A few cards at a time are then placed in a basket in the classroom, and the students know they can unroll a yoga mat and go through those poses (and any others they remember) on their own. I like using them this way. We do have another set of cards that includes instructions on getting into the pose, but I’m not sure that’s helpful to the students at this age. It is, however, helpful to adults who are leading them if they don’t already know the pose. There are times when I disregard the instructions on the other set of cards because it’s not the way I would get the children into the pose, but I’m aware that if yoga is to be in more schools, cards like these probably need to be clear to someone who doesn’t have a regular practice or an RYT.

    The students do argue a bit over the correct interpretation of the poses, and in some cases I think the illustration on the card is adding to the confusion. For example, I teach Tiger pose as a squat, but in the card the child appears to be sitting on the floor, hugging her knees in. I tell the students that either way is fine, and truly, either way is fine. They’re safe and no two yogis need to look alike to achieve benefit from a pose. That’s part of the lesson. So I don’t have any complaints per se, and I’m not sure I would suggest changing anything. But I can see how additional instructions would be helpful to a lot of adults. I’d love to hear how others are using the cards too. A list of suggestions accompanying the cards might be nice, but I wouldn’t want them to limit anyone’s creativity!

    Here is what my daughter loves about the cards
    1. portable, especially in the pouch. She can carry it with her all over the house.
    2. She prefers the cards with the kids on it, especially the girls but that is only because she is a girl.

    Here is what I like about the cards:
    1. I love the bright watercolour images. I think having both boys and girls is a great idea and kids that represent different backgrounds so when are looking at pictures they might see a kid that sorta looks like them.
    2. I love that they are portable because I can easily take them on trips with us. And she does do yoga wherever she is in the house.
    3. The cards are sturdy and seem to be durable.
    4. They are labelled bedtime yoga cards but they can easily be used for quiet time, or a calm down activity as well.

    Loving the books and cards, Thanks. Just started playing with the cards last night and my daughter really likes them, however I would agree with the other comments, especially a little instruction insert. Easier than to check on the internet. I would also have liked to know that there was a matching book, which I somehow missed. Probably would have bought that too. Thanks for a stunning product.

    I am a speech pathologist. I work with children ages 3-8. Many have a diagnosis along the autism spectrum.

    I use the yoga stories as a way to act out verbally presented material, encourage imitation, and to have a “calming” break. One way I use the animal cards is to create a group story. I put out the cards and begin a story with a simple start such as, “one day, X (animal on chosen card) woke up and decided to take a walk; along the way he met……..” then the next person chooses a card and we add on. Once we have about 6 cards, we review the story verbally, and then we act it out moving through the poses.

    The children really enjoy the activity. This is something you can easily do at home with your own child(ren).

    :

    I think they are so sweet, but I think I’d like them to be bigger! Also, the back should have the instructions on how to do the pose. Otherwise, so sweet.

  12. 5 out of 5

    :

    We have the good night yoga cards on my daughters bedside table. We are doing them together each night.

    The Pigeon Pose is probably the hardest drawing to understand. However, I am familiar with the poses and do them with my daughter so it’s not an issue.

    My daughter loves the characters and I am glad I have the books to go along with the cards. She is very excited about Luke from Sydney because that’s where we live. Her name is Elizabeth and so she was quite excited about her English counterpart too!

    Thanks for the lovely resources!

  13. 5 out of 5

    :

    Yes, an “how to” insert with the cards would be nice.

    Maybe some suggestions of games or difference ways to use the cards.

    What I like is they can be used for some of my older students – some cards have pictures of small children then they are hard to use for an older group of children. So I like them because I can use them with my 5 – 12 year olds.

    We really like these cards! The illustrations are very cute. I agree with other reviewers that some of the poses are confusing. It would be nice to see them from several angles or with more shading, or possibly simply link to an online resource with photos of real people demonstrating the poses.

    (verified owner):

    I have really loved the cards. I use them with my 2 children at home and with my first graders at school. We use them to help us find quiet after lunchtime. As I teach yoga, I knew what all of the poses were, but a little description on the back would help those new to yoga. I love the pictures.

    :

    This Saturday is my workshop, so I haven’t used them yet.

    So far my feedback would be that:
    I had to look up Kangaroo Pose ( I didn’t realize it was chair pose) and don’t quite get how the hopping helps prepare for sleep.

    I also needed to find out more about Moon Salute (I didn’t realize it was urdhva tadasana).

    Maybe instructions on a flyer or on the back of the card?

    Cobblers Pose is baddha konasana? It’s drawn like the very advance pose where your heels are under your sits bones.

    I like the cards because of the format that is so user friendly. Yes, I would recommend them.

    :

    I bought the yoga cards for my great nieces. They live in a home school community and are very active. They are 7 and 9.
    Pulling out your colorful cards are not only convenient but are a good quality and easy to store. I like the little bag they are in.

    I have to admit, for someone that who doesn’t do yoga and is interested, this intermediate approach was intriguing to me. If I want to learn something I always go to the children’s version first. Then work up. I had fun with them before I sent them off.

    Overall I thought they were great!

    :

    I love the cards and here is how I use them:

    I use them during class time and I allow each student to pick a card and we perform the stance. The kids love their YOGA every Friday:) The pictures are beautiful and wonderfully done. I would ask that you put your little explanation on the card as you did for the circle pictures. That would be my suggestion.:)

    I also use them with my grownup yogis I teach a Friday class and they also get a kick out of them.

  19. 5 out of 5

    :

    We love the cards. My son (3.5) plays with them alone, pairing the children/poses with the related animal. My daughter (2) likes looking at and naming (learning) the animals. And we all enjoy trying the yoga poses. The children’s interpretations always make me smile.

    There is something about them being cards that they love. Maybe because the order always changes or that they can spread them out or pile them up. And they are nice and sturdy. But it’s more independent play than looking at a book. Such a clever idea.
