The Yoga Deck eBook is the yoga practice you can take anywhere.
This electronic version of the popular Yoga Deck comprises 41 yoga poses and 16 sample sequences, with full instructions and modification, giving you endless options to get on the mat.
Download and take with you on your mobile device or print out on A4 paper – the Yoga Deck is your mobile yoga teacher for when you can’t get to a studio. Just grab your Yoga Deck eBook and start your practice.
The Yoga Deck eBook pose cards give detailed instructional cues to help you get safely into a pose, while also providing modifications and variations to suit a range of yoga experience and ability. The pose cards also inform you which parts of the body are being stretched or strengthened with each pose, and some of the benefits. This information means you can tailor your yoga practice to suit your needs.
The sequences all have themes, including yoga for runners, cyclists, gym bunnies, and mums, as well as sequences that target core strength and hip opening. There’s a quickie 5 minute sequence, one to aid a relaxing sleep, and of course the Sun Salutation. With 16 sequences to give you inspiration, you’re ready to get on the mat from day one.
The Yoga Deck concept and content was developed kiwi yoga teacher Shirley McLeod, and tested with everyday people, ranging in age, ability and yoga experience, to make sure it was easy to use and follow. The content has been peer reviewed by registered yoga teachers (200RYT and 500 RYT) to ensure it is technically correct and appropriate.
Proudly developed and designed in New Zealand.
About Yoga With Me
Shirley McLeod is a wife, mother, corporate career woman, and yoga teacher.
After a crazy 2013 where she had her second child, led a once-in-50-year change to criminal prosecution processes, and was runner-up in New Zealand Project Manger of the Year, the universe intervened. While on holiday Shirley stumbled across an outdoor yoga class – starting a journey that would ultimately help her to better manage her busy work and family commitments. Using yoga to de-stress, unwind, and relax, Shirley has become more focused, productive, confident and effective.
Shirley founded Yoga With Me in 2015 to keep herself accountable in the lead up to completing yoga teacher training, but also to encourage and inspire others to give yoga a go – whether that’s for fitness, flexibility, stress management, relaxation, mindfulness or just because you want a reason to wear comfy yoga pants all day. Yoga With Me is now New Zealand’s largest online community for yoga inspiration, advice and encouragement. Shirley also spreads her message in person, speaking to corporate and wellness events about the importance of creating calm and finding balance in our busy lives.
Shirley is the creator of the YOGA DECK – an oversize deck of cards of instructional yoga poses and sequences to help people take their yoga practice anywhere.
Shirley leads a growing and engaged community, focusing on yoga and wellness, while balancing the demands of family, a professional career and life in general.
