About

Stretch and Distract
Stretch and Distract

I used to work as a Youth Leader for kids. Everyday our youth coordinator asked us to present our activity of choice to the kids.  As a certified yoga instructor I asked who would like to do a yoga class.  Only two girls and one boy volunteered while every other leader had ten or fifteen volunteers. The next day I asked who would like to do ninja training. More than two thirds of the entire group volunteered and before long I had the kids focused like star athletes, meditating like monks and stretching like true yogis.  I didn't change the activity, I just changed the language and the context of how I presented it. I made it fun and relatable!

So I invented a game called Stretch and Distract. It's fun, competitive so kids naturally like it but to be successful at the game one needs to practice focus, strength and patience.

I've played the game at youth centres, yoga studios, at schools and I've even played with adult friends who were interested in killing a little time.

The game doubles as a craft activity since the cards need to be cut out from printed paper or photo stock (recommended). I've also seen people cut the cards out and place them on cardboard paper to make the quality even better and the craft portion of the activity last even longer.

The game is done, tried and tested but I'm raising money on Kickstarter so that I can build an e-commerce site, incorporate my business  and do a few photoshop touchups.  

My goal is to spread this game to kids and families all over the world.  If this kickstarter campaign is successful I would like to do another campaign and expand into doing a yoga fitness cartoon based on the characters already seen in the game.

Just imagine kids waking up in the morning and doing a 20 minute power yoga workout combined with mind calming breathing techniques.

I believe this is one of the greatest gifts we can give to our children and our world.
