Yoga Deck for Kids on the Ball

Each card in this activity yoga deck, developed by physical therapist and mom Ilana Danneman, shows mascot “Herbert” doing a specific pose ranging from “Flying Instructor” to “Tree”; the elements of the pose (balance, calm, social, strength and/or stretch); as well as detailed instructions.

The 44 colorfully illustrated poses—designed for kids with varying abilities—help with flexibility, postural control, increased attention and focus, listening skills, and more.  

Ages 3 and older; $15.95; balls also available; learn more and purchase here.
