I wouldn’t be without them when planning a yoga sequence! They are so helpful and just the colors and the picture alone help to prompt when I am teaching. Absolutely love them!
These cards were a game changer for my personal practice and as a new RYT-200 HR instructor they are helping me to become more confident in sequence planning.
Quick shipping and the cards are amazing. They will definitively add much ease to my class planning and also help me come up with creative ideas.
The PlayPauseBe Yoga decks are designed to help you create a truly personalized practice. They will help you practice yoga mindfully, at your own pace, disconnecting from everything.
The Yoga Deck is a beautiful work of art made of 82 cards. There are 9 categories that will take you through a complete yoga practice, from warm up to slow down.
PlayPauseBe helps you create an infinite number of sequences, whether you are a beginner or advanced. On every card, beneath each position, there is a simple phrase that helps you set your focus and practice safely.
Under the phrase, the numbers on the left of the “rewind” symbol are suggested positions to practice before the card at hand, while the numbers on the right of the “fast-forward” symbol are suggested positions or counterposes to play after the card at hand.
The “volume” symbol under the phrase gives you an indication of how advanced the position is. The fire figure will indicate if a position is aimed at building heat and make your muscles burn. This way you can choose to create a dynamic sequence or a relaxing one.
With these indications, creating sequences has never been so easy!
Target Benefits of the following sequence:
On the top of each card we added which chakra the pose activates. For each pose, you can find highlighted, the chakras involved.
This way, you can easily create sequences based on a specific chakra theme, or discover a deeper understanding of each pose on an energetic level.
On the back of each card, you will find 10 benefits. The ones that are relevant for the card at hand are highlighted. This way you can also create a practice according to your health goals.
Front & Backside of the cards with highlighted benefits
For the yogis that want to build longer sequences, we have created a deck including copies of the most common positions, bonus cards for sequence building and intentional cards that encourage you to bring more purpose to your practice.
The bonus cards are designed to help you remember to:
The intentional cards are the perfect solution if you’re struggling to find new ideas and inspiration for your yoga practices. Each card features a stunning artwork, representing a specific quality, such as self-love, compassion, truth, confidence, grounding, freedom… and so on.
Take a moment to absorb the magical energy from each card and let the power of your inner intuition show you what to focus on…
The decks are a work of art made by the renowned Italian artist Giulia Rosa who personally designed the cards in every detail. It took us over a year to create the final version of the decks.
Umberto, our founder, believes Giulia will one day be the next Andy Warhol*, and the PlayPauseBe deck will be a truly iconic product helping millions of Yogis around the world.
*Since they first met in 2020, Giulia has been featured in Forbes and as a guest in national and international exhibitions. You can find Giulia on Instagram @giuliajrosa where she has a following of more than 500k
The rigid box is made with a fine Linen-structured paper and the cards are made of a 320g Pro paper produced in Italy from FSC Certified sources. The highest standard in terms of flexibility, resistance to moisture, and durability.
