It's Only Ink!
Yoga Pretzels

Millions of people worldwide already know the healing powers of yoga. Yoga is about relaxation and enjoying the process of trying to obtain those creative and sometimes twisty positions. With this said, why don't more children do yoga? Sounds fun, right? Authors Tara Guber and Leah Kalish have thought of that and have put together a kid-friendly collection for children and their parents.
Designed as in flash-card-style (in a hard box), "Yoga Pretzels: 50 Fun Yoga Activities for Kids & Grownups" comes to you as a fifty-card deck that offers "an effective, playful, and easy way to teach and learn yoga."
This splendid deck of cards is sure to bring a few giggles and bouts of laughter to any family. To begin Guber and Kalish have divided the deck into nine sections so you are able to create the yoga that is right for you. These sections include: Breath- tune in and focus, Game- be playful and creative with friends, Balance- feel poised, composed and aligned, Stand- become stable, strong and grounded, Forward Bend- be supple, open, and trustful, Twist & Stretch- twist, turn and extend, Partner- have fun working together and Time In- unwind, rest, and revive.
Each deck comes with a helpful f old-out instruction guide. Yogi tips are included. Reading this before beginning is suggested.
Sophie Fatus' colorful characters are eye-catching and fun. Children will enjoy trying all the different poses captured.
Tara Guber, with Leah Kalish, founded Yoga Ed, a company that "develops health and wellness courses and materials that utilize the physiological, emotional, and educational benefits of yoga and creative play". Learn more abut them and their company at
