The Yoga-Yingo game sets were designed and developed in 2005-06.The idea is to give parents and kids a way to learn and get familiar with yoga. Each set consists of yoga game cards, pose cards and instructions to adapt for the beginner or for the more advanced yogini. Game play is similar to bingo but everyone wins at the end.
