Meet a person with a skill you can use

Sabrina Merchant, 39 Children's Yoga Teacher
AVAILABLE FOR: Teaching yoga to children
CHARGES: Rs 500 onwards

Merchant teaches yoga to children using flashcards, which makes it easier for them to absorb the technique. "Flashcards give the child a visual representation of every asana and breathwork technique," she says. "The Sanskrit as well as the English name of the asana and breathwork is written on the card. The kid-friendly illustrations and the small poem with every breath card helps children understand what they are doing, better." The idea came from Merchant's passion to make yoga a family experience, "The whole idea was to make yoga accessible to every parent and child. The cards can help every family start their yoga journey together."

RECOMMENDED BY: Shweta Attarwala, "These yoga cards are not only attractive but also informative enough to ignite my daughter's curiosity. They make it very easy for me to teach yoga to my child such that she finds it interesting and asks questions. I like the fact that this set covers all aspects like asanas, pranayam and meditation. Also the quality of the cards is quite sturdy."
