Memory Yoga – Classic Game Teaches Yoga – REVIEW
Memory Yoga is a really great game** for ALL ages! ThinkFun really put time and effort into this classic game with a yoga twist. What I like most about it is that it is fun no matter what age you are and it gets you off your butt and moving while still having fun.
HOW TO PLAY:
In Memory Yoga, you turn all of the cards over like regular memory. Then, you take turns trying to make matches. If you make a match, you get to go again. The twist to make the game more fun, is that in order to keep your match – you must perform the yoga pose pictured. If you hold that pose for 10 seconds – you keep the match. If you don’t, you have to turn the cards back over and then the next person selects cards to match. This goes on until all of the matches are made. The player with the most matches in his hand wins Memory Yoga!
Now, I played this with my husband, with my 3 year old niece and by myself. My husband and I had a LOT of laughs when we played it. Let’s just say we are both yoga beginners – so there was a lot of funny faces and falling involved. No worries – no one was hurt.
Memory Yoga is just fun! When I played it with my niece, it was really funny watching her try to do the poses and interpret them. Then, I would help her by moving her legs, arms to show her how to do it. She LOVED it! She laughed and giggled the whole time and she would get SO proud of herself when she completed the move and got to keep her cards. Absolutely adorable. She is a special needs child – so it was really extra cute seeing her have so much fun.
Now, it really is not a game meant for one person but I decided to make it a one person game just for fun and self-amusement. It was a challenge and I didn’t get all the moves but I sure had quite a sweat after at least attempting all of my matches and doing the poses!
Honestly – I think every household needs a copy of Memory Yoga – even if you don’t have kids and even if you don’t do yoga. It really is a lot of fun and you actually get a workout without even really intending to. VERY well designed rendition of a classic game!
**I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review and I am so happy I decided to buy this game!
