Help your little ones move through emotions and ground themselves with The Creative Sprout Mindful Yoga Cards.
This beautifully illustrated set of 24 cards will help your child connect with their mind and body, a powerful tool that will help them as they grow.
Yoga and mindfulness improve both physical and mental health in children. By practising yoga and breathing techniques with your child, you enable them to focus on being mindful and "in the moment". This is a crucial life skill that will help your child learn how to identify their feelings, lower stress and frustration and help them emotionally regulate.
Yoga not only enables your child to help regulate their emotions, but it also allows them to connect with their physical side. Practising yoga can improve balance and flexibility, which are important cognitive skills for growing children. These movements show children what their bodies are capable of achieving and increase flexibility.
The Mindful Yoga Cards have been thoughtfully designed with imagery of flowers and plants to represent growth and grounding. A common theme within yoga is grounding. Grounding is connecting with the earth both physically and spiritually by bringing awareness into your body to banish feelings of stress and anxiety. We believe nurturing personal growth and strength from a young age is the root system for a peaceful and fulfilled life.
Each card has an ‘imagine’ section which encourages the use of imagination in your child’s yoga practice. Imagination is a powerful tool to calm a racing mind, harnessing this tool with children is beneficial to their mental wellbeing. Making yoga fun with creative stories helps your little one engage with each pose, focus on the task at hand and build discipline.
The great thing about practising yoga with your little one is that it can be done at your own pace and in line with your child’s age and skill level. It can be done anywhere - from the comfort of your loungeroom to anywhere outdoors or on holiday.
The Yoga cards are designed and made in Australia. Each card is printed on an A6 size 350gsm card stock, with rounded corners and protective matt celloglazing for durability. They also come in a cute calico drawstring bag for safekeeping!
