Reviews - What do customers think about Yoga Pret (Yoga Cards) (Yoga Cards)?
Good notecards! Aug 14, 2008
This is a box of cards with poses, games, etc. It is very easy to store in the box and I can take it to my kids yoga class. Sometimes it is fun to have the kids pick a card and we all act out what is on thier card. I think this is a great idea and I hope to get the other versions of these cards.
Thank You Karen
My son is ready to go! Aug 13, 2008
Arrived yesterday and my son has taken over the box. (He's 8). We are going to get started together. I like the descriptions of the breathing and how you should 'feel' when you do the movements/relaxing poses. Since I'm taking a yoga class (i'm a newb) and he's going by the names on the cards, it's a bit confusing when he says, I can do the 'turtle' or I can do the 'rainbow.' But for him I find I like 'rainbow' as opposed to 'corpse pose.' Also, the cards are not the size of a 'deck' of cards. They are larger, more the size of a DVD case. The box is sturdy thick cardboard and has a nice flip top. I'm thinking it will help us take care of them properly. He did go thru each card and at the end has decided he wants the book and the pretzel mat. (Way to go for the marketing plan!!)
These don't seem too 'baby' for someone his age and I think that up to 9, maybe pushing 10 could use them also.
Great bonding tool that's fun & healthy Aug 8, 2008
My kids loves this because THEY get to select the cards and twist Mama into a pretzel. It their choice and we are doing an activity TOGETHER. There are some good/simple breathing & meditation techniques in there too, aside from the poses.
Kids really love this! Mar 15, 2008
My students really like this product. One side of the card is the the pose with the name, and the other side shows the four steps to achieve this pose. As an OT I work with children with tremendous difficulty motor planning new movements; and because of the steps presented visually, my kids do really well figuring out how to do these poses with more independence. It is a wonderful product. BUY IT and have fun!
Well designed, lots of fun Feb 8, 2008
What I like most about these is that they are color coded for different kinds of poses and activities. I like the flexibility of mixing up the poses or focusing on one kind, rather than using a book that sets the sequence. The only thing I don't like about this and some other kids yoga products is that the names of poses are changed to make them more kid friendly. Since there's no consistency between products, one will call child's pose, for example, "sleeping mouse," and another will call it "rock." But overall, I highly recommend these cards.
