Yoga Train - a deck of illustrated yoga sequencing cards
Yoga Train is a deck of 60 cards illustrating yoga poses and their literal meaning, printed on robust paper with a protected silk finish. They include 33 asanas (yoga postures) color-coded by asana families.
The Yoga Train idea originated while I was training to become a yoga teacher and my classmates and I started developing sequences.
The clear and simply illustrated asanas are super useful to quickly reach a good outcome and keep the ideas fresh. In addition, these cards are brilliant for learning the Sanskrit (old Indian language used in the practice of yoga) names of the poses.
Yoga Train exists in English and German, so you have the choice to pick your deck(s) in the language that feels most comfortable for you. When funding is complete, you will be asked for the language you prefer for your Yoga Train deck(s).

Disclaimer These cards are a reference for yoga practitioners - people with basic knowledge of yoga - to make sequences. Yoga Train does not replace proper yoga training. Like any endeavor involving movement, yoga poses some inherent risk. The user of the Yoga Train takes full responsibility for their safety and knows their limits. The illustrator, publisher, and distributor specifically disclaim any responsibility or liability for injuries that may occur during the practice of yoga or any other exercise program. Finally, listen to your body and be sensible. Namaste!
Risks and challenges
The Yoga Train cards have been tested by experienced yogis as well as beginners. They will be printed and assembled in Dublin, Ireland, and shipping will be via Irish Post. The only thing missing now is to get the funding to produce the Yoga Train and send it to YOU in November 2017!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
