I'm a yoga teacher in an inner city high school in downtown Brooklyn, New York. Our school serves urban youth ranging in age from 17-21. They don't like gym and need a lot of gym credit!! I've found they enjoy yoga and continue to ask for more classes!! With three periods of yoga each day scheduled for next semester – I will have 90 students for yoga EVERY DAY. There is a great teaching tool my students could utilize to work on yoga in school and at home. It's called AN ASANA LEARNING DECK. It's a yoga text book laid out in laminated cards that would last for many years. I would like 90 of these decks. Students in future classes would also benefit from this material – so it would be a reusable yoga textbook!! My students would use the deck to learn postures, stick figures, Sanskrit names, categories, and suggested sequencing. Cards are color-coded by category so students would be able to flip through the deck, order them and design their own routines. My students would be able to use these cards to memorize and prepare for tests. The learning deck includes 108 postures, plus quick reference information cards, totaling 120 cards. Cards are- Size: 4" X 5 1/2", two sided, and laminated. They are held securely on a metal ring. CHECK THIS OUT!! The creator of this deck, the owner of Yoga Blossom (check out her website at YogaBlossom.com) has offered to donate 90 copies of her book on how to draw yoga stick figures if I purchase her Asana Decks. Drawing is a powerful way for students to focus on what they are learning in yoga – particularly in regards to alignment and placement of their bodies in these challenging exercises. If a donor will provide me with finances to get 90 of the Asana Decks – the creator of these products will give me the books for free!! YOGA IS WORKING IN MY SCHOOL!! I'm getting students involved in health and fitness – not to mention the mental, emotional and social skills they develop via yoga study – resulting in a dynamic impact on our school population. Please help me to develop and refine this program with the excellent tools I'm asking for here.
