Strong Body & Mind Yoga Cards
Size: 15 cm W X 29 cm H
Text Content Territories: Indigenous;

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

CD: 40 Million Salmon Can't be Wrong

40 Million Salmon Can’t Be Wrong weaves together songs, stories, art images and science in an electrifying stage show that helps people understand how we can bring back our wild salmon to historical levels of abundance. Acclaimed singer/songwriters Holly Arntzen and Kevin Wright, are joined onstage by the Wilds band (Shawn Soucy-drums, Brian Newcombe-bass, Bill Sample-keyboards, Andreas Schuld-guitar), renowned storyteller and artist Roy Henry Vickers and ocean ecologist Russ George.

The collapse of wild salmon runs is closely tied to the collapse of ocean plankton pastures. This was profoundly demonstrated by the eruption of Kastochi volcano in 2008, its dusting of the ocean pastures with mineral-rich volcanic ash, and the return of 40 million sockeye to the Fraser River in 2010.

Authenticity Note: Some, but limited, Indigenous contribution, such as from artist Roy Henry Vickers.

CD: The Cycle of Life

Orcas, bears, salmon, snakes, bison, frogs, songbirds, turtles, cedar trees and many other organisms at risk inhabit these songs, which are performed by Holly and the Dream Band, along with 2800 students from nine schools in Victoria and Vancouver. Orca Baby was written in response to the question: How do you explain extinction to a baby?

Endangered Species points out that humans like to live in the same places as wildlife…which is why so many of them are at risk. Salmon Circle celebrates the ancient cycle of life that has sustained ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest for millennia. Landfill Blues is a raunchy anthem to recycling, reducing, refusing…and to the worms and wasps that do the dirty work of biological decomposition. Recycling a beverage container is an action within the power of a child that helps endangered species.
