YOGI: Yoga Cards for Joyful Learning!

€5,324

We created YOGI to bring the ancient practice of yoga to children of all ages – through a deep, yet playful connection between the body, mind and soul. 

YOGI is a yoga-inspired card deck through which children – along with their parents and friends – can participate in a variety of fun activities to help develop self-confidence, imagination and mental and physical balance. 

YOGI contains 40 cards that can be used for countless activities and games! 20 cards have lovely illustrations of various yoga poses, and the other 20 accurately describe the poses in simple, fun rhyme.

 

 

YOGI includes a Shipping package, the game package, 20 illustration cards, 20 rhyming instruction cards and a leaflet with 4 activities and more!

Each YOGI package includes two YOGI dice. The dice are a great way to make the game accessible to kids!

As children move through the different poses in YOGI, they exercise their imagination, develop their coordination and learn to be more mindful of their bodies. YOGI sends your child on a lifelong journey to reaching good health, peace of mind and inner calm!

YOGI is great for kids ages 3 to 13!

Inspired by Animals and Nature 

All of our poses were inspired by animals and nature. Some of the names we chose may not correspond with their original Sanskrit meanings – but you will see that each card includes the real name of the pose, for reference purposes.

 

 

 

 

 

First, go through all the poses slowly and with care. Take your time and have fun! 

Next, find out if a pose is too challenging for the child – and if so, remove it from the deck for now. You can bring it back later, when they're ready for it! 

To play, choose an activity either from the leaflet provided with the game, YOGI's website, or just invent one of your own. 

The great thing about YOGI is that it's a platform through which you can play countless different games! The options are endless! 

 

Yogi Tag is a great game for kids of all ages! 

 

Through YOGI, your kids and yoga students will grow in the following ways! 

Children develop their balance, strength & flexibility.

 

 

Children learn to interact, communicate and collaborate with each other.

 

 

Children improve their attentiveness, concentration & memory.

 

 

Children connect to their body, develop self-confidence, imagination & love of nature. 

 

 

One of the meanings of the word Yoga is "union." By playing with YOGI, children experience union with themselves, their parents, their friends and their surroundings.

Risks and challenges

The illustrations are complete. The poems have been finalized. The cards and packaging are ready for printing!

All that is left now is to print the cards at the printing house, package them, and send them to our fulfillment house for delivery. Thankfully, we have already sourced our printing house, and they have already run sample packs of cards for us. We have also been in touch with multiple fulfillment houses for quotes. They are ready to begin work, so we can print, package and ship as soon as the campaign ends!
