But the benefits of yoga are well documented, and we’ve all heard the news stories about how anxiety in our kids is at an all-time high. That’s why I wanted to find a way to bring the benefits of yoga to children in a way that’s not only fun and kid-friendly, but also makes things easier for busy parents.
The fact that these animal yoga cards also forge a deeper connection between children and nature is just an added bonus!
Simply print them off, cut them out, and let your child choose cards at random from the deck. They can do as many poses as they like without the pressure of paying attention to a whole routine, which is a more respectful, child-led approach anyway.
The benefits of yoga:
- Yoga refines balance, coordination and flexibility.
- It develops focus and concentration.
- Yoga boosts self-esteem and confidence.
- It strengthens the mind-body connection.

I should mention that I’m not a yoga expert myself, but these cards were developed under the guidance of some yoga pros who have been practicing for many years.
It’s been an absolute delight to see my love of wildlife, nature education and calm, respectful parenting come together in this gorgeous series. My kids love using these cards over and over again and I know yours will too.
