Enjoy Your Most Creative & Fulfilling Self-Practice Ever

Unlock 71 New & Unique Poses And Deepen Your Body-Mind Connection With Powerful Pranayamas

Meet The Asana Expansion Deck

The Asana Expansion Deck brings you over 70 NEW asanas (spanning all 9 categories) along with pranayama cards to help you integrate breathwork into your self-practice. With this deck, you’ll enjoy greater challenges for your body and mind… While gaining infinite options and ideas for your sequencing. With so many new options, mixing up your practice every day is a breeze.

 

  • Can’t face another sun salutation? (I feel ya!)
    Then switch it up with moon salutations instead.
  • Getting bored of Warrior 1?
    Then give the humble warrior a go.
  • Mastered your balance in half moon pose?
    Take the intensity up a notch with the revolved half moon.

No matter your level of experience, you will find TONS of exciting new positions to mix up your warm-up, standing flows, seated sequences, and cool down.  We’ve included a mix of postures from all asana categories, including backbends, inversions, arm balances, and more. 

 

And the best part about the Asana Expansion Deck? It works as an add-on to the PPB deck, not a replacement to it. So you can combine the cards of both decks and have double the asana options and 100X the number of sequence possibilities.

 

So, if you love building creative flows, challenging your body with new postures, and deepening your body-mind connection, the Asana Expansion Deck is for YOU!

Create Infinite Fresh Flows
With BRAND NEW Asanas

For the first time, we’ve created a deck solely dedicated to brand-new poses and variations for you to use in conjunction with the PPB deck for more ideas, inspiration, and fun.

The creation of the Asana Expansion Deck was a community effort. It has been created by the PPB community, for the PPB community.

We have included many of the poses you and our other PlayPauseBe’ers have requested, such as:

Aside from static poses, we’ve included a bunch of dynamic and flowing asanas, like:

Like with our other decks, the new asanas are divided into 9 categories, from warm up to slow down, a continuation of PlayPauseBe’s innovative and effortless sequencing method. 

But unlike the expansion deck, you will not find any repetition cards or repeated cards from the PPB deck, only new poses!

Unite Your Body & Mind With Pranayamas

While we adore asana practice, the physical postures are just one aspect of yoga. And to access the full potential of yoga’s juicy benefits, we must practise a holistic, well-rounded practice.

That’s why in this deck, we decided to introduce another of the eight limbs of yoga – pranayama (yogic breathing techniques).

What’s more, each pranayama has specific physical benefits, such as improved digestion, enhanced lung function or lowered high blood pressure. So if you’re theming your sequence around a particular benefit, use the information on the pranayama cards to select the one that matches your theme!

De Stressing

Heating

Calming

Focus

Nervous System

Balance

Metabolism

Energizing

In the deck, you’ll find 6 pranayama cards. These are a mix of calming and energising breathing techniques, so you can pair the most suitable one to your practice.

For example, if you have designed an energising morning sequence with lots of backbends and standing sequences to boost your energy, you can integrate the Kapalbhati pranayama. This heating breathing technique stimulates your brain nerves and increases the level of oxygen reaching the brain, which in turn increases your energy levels.

Or, if you’re doing a slow Hatha evening practice to de-stress and prepare for sleep, the Nadi Shodhana pranayama will aid this intention. This cooling breathwork shifts the nervous system from the fight-or-flight response (which occurs from the many daily stressors we face) to the rest and digest mode, which allows our body to relax and our mind to settle. 

You can use these pranayama techniques at the start or end of your practice. 

By slowly introducing breathing exercises to your physical practice, you’ll notice an enhancement of the mental benefits of yoga, such as increased presence, concentration and clarity.

The Same Great Features
You Know And Love

Aside from the exciting new editions, we’ve kept the same great features you know and love from our other decks. You can expect to find the helpful benefits indicators and highly-popular chakra icons, allowing you to theme your sequences in whichever way you want. 

What’s more, the helpful intensity indicator at the bottom of the cards helps you create flows aimed at your level as well as ensure your sequences are effective and safe (beginning with gentle postures and building up to more challenging ones).

Seamless Use With the PPB Deck

The Asana Expansion Deck is designed to work in conjunction with the PPB deck, not instead of it – so don’t worry, this new deck won’t make your old one redundant!

Instead of numbering the asanas from 1, the card numbers continue from the first deck.
This gives seamless ease of use and allows you to choose asanas from both decks simultaneously.

Yoga Poses Combined

With this many asanas, you’ll never find yourself uninspired, stuck in a rut, or practising the same flows day after day. Instead, with almost infinite sequencing possibilities, you’ll enjoy a fresh sequence every day!

How Will The Asana Expansion Deck
Elevate Your Self-Practice?

The Asana Expansion Deck will give you tons more sequencing ideas and inspiration for your practice than ever before.  It will also introduce new aspects of traditional yoga practice (which are often omitted in modern yoga), allowing you to experience a deeper experience on the mat.

  • Enjoy 71 NEW yoga poses in your self-practice, spanning across all 9 categories.
  • Challenge yourself with new variations of traditional yoga poses like revolved half moon and aeroplane pose.
  • Learn how to control your energy, balance your nervous system, and focus your mind through your breath.
  • Strengthen the connection between your body and mind and regulate your prana (life force) by combining asana with pranayama.
  • Relish the increased inspiration and motivation you will feel in your self-practice, and look forward to getting on your mat each day again!

Limited Edition?

We’re thrilled to be growing as a company and creating more and more products! However, the truth is the more products we have on offer, the more complicated our logistics structure becomes.

As we grow, we need to be mindful of the production and logistics aspects, especially when there is a general rise in costs in all sectors, including ours. Therefore, some of our products will be created as “one-off” limited edition decks and won’t always be in stock.

Is this the case with the Asana Expansion Deck? While we hope we can make this deck one that is always available, at this moment in time, we cannot guarantee it.

We believe it’s best to be completely honest with you about this as we don’t want you to miss out.

So, we will be kick-starting this new product with one production that is proportioned to the number of preorders we receive. Therefore, the only way to ensure you get your hands on the Asana Expansion Deck is to pre-order.

And, if you’re a FLOGA member, you’ll be thrilled to hear that you’ll get an extra juicy discount on top of the special launch price!

FAQ

Yes, the Asana Expansion Deck is suitable for all levels, including absolute beginners. You’ll find short cues and visual instructions on the cards, along with longer explanations and contraindications for each pose in the manual. 

To help you understand the difficulty level of each pose, we’ve included an intensity icon. So, you can start with the more gentle poses and put the advanced asanas to the side until you become more confident and experienced. 

And remember, you always have the support of our teachers (and the experienced yogis in the community!) in our Facebook Group, dedicated to those who want to deepen their practice with the PlayPauseBe decks.

Absolutely yes! The PlayPauseBe decks are the most highly recommended teaching tool for yoga teachers around the world. In fact, 32.5% of our customers are yoga instructors who find our innovative reference system insanely helpful for planning their classes.




The Decks are beneficial to both new instructors and those with years of experience because:

  • You get TONS of inspiration for your class themes, such as benefits and chakras.
  • You can plan your classes in a much faster and more efficient way.
  • You can memorise your sequences easily, thanks to the visual content.
  • The descriptions on each card help you learn and remember the appropriate queueing and Sanskrit names of every single pose.

If you have the previous PPB deck, you will find the Asana Expansion Deck gives you tons more inspiration and ideas for sequences, so you don’t get “stuck in a rut” teaching the same old flows. 

Plus, you will find 8 advanced asanas like Turtle and Flying Splits pose so you can take your personal practice to the next level too!

We know that starting a self-yoga practice can initially feel confusing and overwhelming. That’s why we created the PlayPauseBe yoga decks to give you the confidence and competence you need to practice independently.

We have included contraindications for each posture in the manual. If you have any existing injuries or health concerns, we recommend you consult the manual before creating a sequence. This will help you choose the postures that will be most beneficial to you.

Note that unlike the previous deck, we have not included sequencing suggestions on the cards. This is because they would take up too much space for this specific deck. Instead, we have included suggestions in the manual and are working on a system to improve our innovative sequence referencing method further.

Remember that you can always join the PlayPauseBe Facebook group for additional support. Here we have a wonderful community of yogis and yoginis of all levels with whom you can share your sequences for feedback. For any questions or doubts, you can post inside the group and our teachers and the experienced practitioners inside the community will be happy to help! 

If you don’t have Facebook, you can reach us at info@playpausebe.com and we’ll reply back as soon as possible.
