Strong Body & Mind Yoga Cards
Size: 15 cm W X 29 cm H
25 Double-sided Interconnecting Cards, 6" x 9"

The word Yoga comes from Sanskrit and means to unite, to bring together, to connect.The Strong Body & Mind Yoga Cards connect the ancient practice of yoga with Indigenous culture. These cards celebrate connection as they invite all of us to honour our connection to each other, to our animal friends, to nature and spirit and to this amazing planet we all share. - Kathy Beliveau

The Yoga Practice:
Choose an individual card, or one of each colour to create a sequence, or several cards at once for a longer yoga practice. A practice with children may include making sounds. Invite the children to hoot like an owl or caw like a raven or growl like a bear!

The cards are colour coded into four aspects of a yoga practice:
4 Green Opening Breath cards
8 Yellow Warm-up Pose cards
8 Purple Active Pose cards
4 Blue Closing Pose cards
~Kathy Beliveau

The Reflective Practice:
The reflective practice follows the Seven Sacred Teachings and incorporates Indigenous values. Our intention is to invite you to use one or more of these reflections to deepen your yoga experience either before, during, or after your practice. Choose a single card to respond to by yourself, with a friend, in a sharing circle or as a guide for journal writing.

The cards are colour coded into four aspects of a reflective practice:
8 Yellow Respect cards
Focus on respect and love to the world around us
4 Green Witness cards
Focus on humility, courage and interconnectedness
4 Blue Gratitude cards
Focus on the wisdom that surrounds us
8 Purple Connected cards
Focus on truth and honesty in all living beings

A Good Day to Die chronicles a movement that started a revolution and inspired a nation. By recounting the life story of Dennis Banks (The Last of the Mohicand, War Party), the Native American who co-founded the American Indian Movement (AIM) in 1968 to advocate and protect the rights of American Indians, the film provides an in-depth look at the history and issues surrounding AIM's formation. From the forced assimilation of Native Americans within boarding schools, to discrimination by law enforcement authorities, to neglect by government officials responsible for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, AIM sought redress for the many grievances that its people harboured.

Banks' personal struggle culminated in major armed confrontations at Custer, South Dakota and Wounded Knee climactic flash points which saw him standing steadfast as a leader for his cause. Bittersweet and compelling, A Good Day to Die charts the rise and fall of a movement that fought for the civil rights of American Indians.
