The Yoga 4 Classrooms® Card Deck is a fun and effective tool primarily for educators, counselors and therapists to use with children for a peaceful and productive classroom. Larger 6"x8" boxed set features 67 yoga and mindfulness-based activity cards which include illustrated instructions, discussion points, sub-activities, and educational tie-ins, for a total of more than 200 beneficial classroom practices. The activities were specially chosen for their suitability for the typical classroom space.

The cards include a mix of yoga postures, brain boosting movements, breath exercises, visualizations, mindfulness activities, creative movement and community-building games. Wellness and character-building discussion points such as the power of positive thinking, nutrition, and being a peacemaker, address the whole child - physical, social and emotional.
