How To Create A Yoga Card Deck
In 12 Easy Steps

This is for those slightly crazy yoga teachers who want to go that extra mile for their students.  Have you ever thought about creating your own yoga card deck, with you on the cards?   If not, it’s time to start thinking about it.

Have fun with it!   You could create a yoga card deck for:

  • Golfers
  • People with back pain
  • People with ME
  • Rugby Players
  • Seniors
  • Surfers
  • Tennis Players

There are 100’s of niches you can choose from.

Your cards don’t need to be glossy like they are in shops, though you can pick some good quality photo paper from your local stationary store or on Amazon.

Why bother? 

  • Students will perceive you as an expert
  • Students will come to your classes for longer
  • Help students remember routines when they get home
  • It’s fun to create

Stuff you’ll need

  • camera
  • willing friend
