Enjoy a Personalized Yoga Practice

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.

How does it work?

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.

Create Yoga Sequences Like A Pro

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!

Bring your practice to the NEXT level... with the New Expansion Deck.

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.

+78 cards!

The bonus cards are designed to help you remember to:

Pause in a particular position

Repeat a position or a sequence

Do a vinyasa as a transition from one pose to another

+12 new intentional cards!

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…

An iconic piece of art

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

A newly designed,
long lasting box.

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.

Practice in a
distraction-free
environment

Log Off and Tune In

The PlayPauseBe yoga decks help you create a regular practice that unleashes your spirit in a distraction-free environment, where you can forget about your digital devices for a while.

Feel free to practice whenever and wherever you want: at home, in nature, or in your favorite spot, and enjoy the beauty of the present moment.

Eco-friendly Production

The PlayPauseBe cards are made in Europe with the highest quality, sustainable materials available. Our Eco factory is powered by solar energy, uses rainwater in sanitary installations, and recycles all production waste. Our goal is to make sure that we do not grow at the expense of our planet and its climate.

What is going to happen to your yoga practice?

In four words: It will improve dramatically.

We have taken a step further into the realm of immersive training, retaining the  acclaimed essence of the decks’ previous version, and boosting it up with an even more comprehensive degree of mindfulness.

Some benefits you’ll get from the new PlayPauseBe decks

Build up your own sequences in a simpler and safer way, thanks to our unique, logical, straight-to-the-point system of referencing between cards and the 100-page user’s manual (both on paper, and immediately downloadable as PDF, for maximum versatility).

Enhanced conscious training: design your own sequences, based upon your very skills, so you can move forward “automatically” at your own pace. Follow your breath and listen to your body at a deeper level.

Exercise focusing on YOUR specific health needs and goals, thanks to the benefit icons printed on the back of each card. (You can for instance design sequences dedicated to help better your sleep, improve focus or boost your immune system.)

You’ll be able to lay out sequences that target every single Chakra you wish to focus on. (So you will be able to connect deeply to your energetic body.)

Get into “mindfulness mode” everywhere you are, at any moment, instantly! - You can practice yoga at your will, even if you’re in the middle of a rainforest, and detach your eyes from retina-sucking devices. No internet connection is required.

Unlimited inspiration and step-by-step, paint-by-numbers walkthrough for your yoga sequences and class themes. (Your students will literally worship your expertise.)

Master yoga as part of your daily routine; level up quicker, better, and with less effort than you can ever imagine. (ignite into your body more strength, dexterity, flexibility, and forge a steel-grounded mind).
