I first became a fan of Jennifer Cohen Harper when I found her book, Little Flower Yoga for Kids. The book was fun, engaging, and useful for my daughters and me. The Yoga & Mindfulness Practices for Children Card Deck is ideal for taking Jennifer's ideals and practices out of the book and onto the mat. These cards make it easy and enjoyable for kids and their parents to connect, breathe, move, focus, and relax -- practices we could all use a lot more of in our daily lives!

"Yoga and mindfulness really resonate with youth when they are framed as creative exploration. Yoga & Mindfulness Practices for Children Card Deck is perfect for teaching and practicing in this way. Whether it's the end of class or the end of a therapy session, "pick a card" is one of the most fun and most time-tested ways to practice these skills with youth."
Chris McKenna, Program Director, Mindful Schools

"Teachers, parents, therapists, counselors: Get these cards before they're gone! The Yoga & Mindfulness Practices for Children Card Deck is so much more than a deck of cards. This series is brilliant. The drawings are explanatory and relatable and the practices cover not only yoga shapes, but the heart of yoga as well. The deck is a well-organized, easily understandable tool that can guide any child or group of children through breath, focus, awareness, and connection."
Melody Moore, PhD, RYT, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Founder of Embody Love Movement

"This is exactly what I need! The deck is anchored on an effective kids yoga curriculum, comprehensive, inclusive, and well-organized. With the detail and accessibility that can only come from an experienced educator and author who loves and lives mindfulness and yoga, each card thoughtfully shares a practice through illustration and explanation. Due to this flexible format, the cards can be used exclusively or paired with a yoga and mindfulness curriculum. The delightful illustrations by Karen Gilmour are representative of children of a range of ethnicities and abilities. I highly recommend these cards to school teachers and personnel, and yoga teachers."
