yoga poses nomenclature cards

I may have mentioned before that we love Yoga! Our style is a mash up of several different types of Yoga. We have poses that we practice regularly and so many have great names. The kiddos often call out a pose and quickly jump into form. We developed some basic Yoga Poses Nomenclature Cards to share.
