Campaign Description

We have created a deck of 31 yoga pose and affirmation cards for children. Our cards are a playful introduction to yoga, while inspiring creativity and a positive mindset. We believe that yoga and mindfulness are essential tools for the social and emotional well-being of children. We feel that the complexity of yoga and mindfulness can be taught in a simplified way through visual means, which was the purpose for creating the cards. We honour and acknowledge the curiosity of all children and we hope these yoga practice cards will inspire and uplift children at home, in schools, and beyond.

Our Idea..

This is a creative collaboration of 3 children’s yoga teachers who also happen to be SISTERS.

 These beautiful hand-drawn illustrations are thanks to another yogi – Creations by Seraphine.

Keeping it simple was one of the foundations for creating these cards. Simplicity and clarity ensure that yoga is accessible to as many children as possible. It was important to us that our cards included affirmations. We feel that learning the value of positive affirmations at any age is beneficial to our well-being and this is especially true for our children.

 Yoga and mindfulness is a simple practice that can be introduced to children as young as 3 years old. Many people call it a tool, however, it really is a path. Our cards will help support children on this path.

 Bringing yoga and mindfulness into the classroom or home not only teaches invaluable self-regulation skills, stress reduction, and physical literacy, it also teaches children that it’s not limited to a yoga studio or class. Yoga is meant to be practiced on and off the mat

 

 

Why Yoga for Kids?

●     Children will learn to stretch, breathe, and relax in a playful way, which will help support a lifelong foundation for well-being.

●     Children will build strong, limber, and healthy bodies. Yoga improves social interaction and develops focus and concentration, thus improving attention.

●     Children will learn invaluable skills to help them face the challenges of growing up, developing physical and emotional strength.

●     Children will cultivate self-esteem and self-acceptance through a non-competitive activity.

●     Most importantly, children will have fitness fun!

 Yoga is accessible for all children, including children with complex needs. As educators or caregivers, you may need to be inventive and creative on ways to allow the yoga experience to be inclusive.

ALWAYS remember, yoga is not about perfection. Although there may seem to be many instructions for a yoga pose, there are not many rules! If it feels right, it is right. Children learn best through praise and celebration, not criticism - we encourage yoga to be a VERY positive experience.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to reach many! Our cards allow the opportunity for children, parents, caregivers and teachers to make yoga more accessible to those who may not have the opportunity or means to attend yoga classes in their community 

Now more than ever, we need to get these resources into the hands of our children. An introduction to yoga is a way to release their stresses, to create mindful movements and the opportunity to be still, and to self-regulate themselves. The pandemic has taken away our gift to offer this directly to children – through in-school programs, recreational programs, and in-person classes in studios.

We created 3 Sisters Yoga Cards and virtual opportunities to provide children the gift that is very important in all three of our hearts and necessary in our world.

With your support, you will be a piece of our puzzle to help get our cards into the hands of so many more children!

Shauna Makepeace

Owner Partner

Shauna found her love of yoga when her nights and weekends were no longer busy with her son’s hockey games. As a busy mom to two amazing boys, her yoga mat became her space to move, breath, and feel her stress melt away in her favourite hot yoga class. When her boys went off to university and her nest was empty, Shauna was drawn back to the idea of working with children and wanted to share her love of yoga and mindfulness with children in her community. She took her a children and teens meditation training with Lifestyle Meditation in 2017 and her children’s yoga certification with YogaKids International in 2019. Shauna lives and teaches yoga in Edmonton, AB.

Sara Morris

Owner Partner

Sara fell in love with yoga the first time she rolled out her mat in 2002. She knew instantly that yoga would become a BIG part of her life. Sara has always had a love of working with children, and her passion for yoga lead to her completing her adult yoga certification in 2005, her children’s yoga certification with YogaKids International in 2009, and meditation training for adults, children and teens with Lifestyle Meditation in 2015. Sara teaches yoga full time in various yoga studios, school, and community programs in and around Edmonton, AB. Sara’s greatest passion besides her two children and spouse is to bring yoga to students in remote communities and hopes these cards will support this vision.

3 Sisters Yoga for Kids Co-Owners

Creators

Together in 2017 & 2018, we had the opportunity to share our yoga teaching to children in remote communities in Northern Alberta as resident yoga teachers for one week. Although we knew how impactful yoga is for children it was through these experiences we saw first hand that there was a lack of opportunity for children who live in remote areas to access quality yoga programs, as so our journey began.   

In February of 2020, the endeavor of bringing this idea into action commenced through the artistic representation of our vision. In August 2020 we knew in our hearts that our cards were launching at a pivotal time in our world and we were ready to meet the needs of children and families with yoga. 

It is hard to believe as we launch ATB Build Her Business BoostR it was only one year ago our journey as 3 Sisters Yoga for Kids began.

With deep gratitude we want to acknowledge our families, we wouldn't be here without your love and support

FAQs

What age groups are your cards geared towards?

Our cards can be used for all ages. We had children as young as two use them and we have had adults purchase them to use for their own practice.
