Unveiling Mini Yoga Card Deck: With 101 Yoga Asana Sanskrit Pronunciations

101 Asana Cards


Greetings and Namaste!

George WattsI’m George Watts (that’s me over there in doodle form), a BWY Yoga teacher and the creator of the Online Yoga Lesson Planner. I’ve been teaching yoga since 2010.

I have a passion for mini yoga cards and pronouncing asanas in Sanskrit. 

“I believe that practicing Yoga from cards makes it fun, especially when they’re Mini Yoga Cards.”

I also believe that uttering the Sanskrit of an asana imbues a Yoga practice with a bit of magic dust. So, these cards bring fun and magic dust (lol). 

I not only recommended my students to get these mini Yoga cards, but I made it a precondition for joining my class. I give them the first class for free and say:

“If you want to come to my next class, you have to get my Mini Yoga Card Deck, and bring them to class. Playing with the cards during class will motivate you to play with them at home, which will be the greatest gift I could ever give you.” 

As a seasoned yoga instructor, I was pleasantly surprised by my students’ enthusiasm when I introduced these Mini Yoga Cards in class. I encourage students to bring the cards to class and give them 10 minutes (at the end of each class) to play with them. This gently guides my students to become comfortable with playing with the cards, which empowers them to extend their yoga practice into their daily lives at home.

I created this Mini Yoga Card Deck for myself (and my students), to make learning pronunciations more fun, and to give my students a cute, affordable Yoga Card Deck. I’m thrilled to make them available to you.

How To Create A Sequence With The Mini Yoga Cards


This is a Mini Yoga Card Deck, so all the complicated stuff has been chucked out, and only the fun stuff remains. You can be flexible with the cards. If you only have one minute spare, pick one card. If you have 4 minutes spare, pick 4 cards. If you have 7 minutes spare, pick 7 cards. Aim to practice each pose in the sequence for one to five minutes.

I recommend you stick with the same sequence for 7 days because your body responds well to repetition.
