I enjoy yoga. It has so many benefits and I find it completely relaxing. My little girls like to practice yoga, too. They have little yoga mats and sometimes we can be found chanting “om” and setting intentions for the day before breakfast. Last week I was contacted to see if I was interested in trying out a game called Turasa – A Yoga Adventure. My interest was immediately peaked when I was told it was a yoga game for kids and adults. That sounded pretty awesome to me. I was like “where do I sign up?!!?”
When the game arrived in the mail my four year old was super excited. She was so excited that we sat down to play immediately. And then played the game two more times, before I had to cart the girls off to bed for the night.
Turasa is a yoga adventure game that takes you on a journey through a river, ocean, jungle and a city. It’s designed for 1-10 players and is for ages 3 and up. My 2 year old played with us and had a great time, but as expected she needed a little help. One of my favorite parts about the game is that it’s a journey for all of the players and isn’t competitive. It really focuses on cooperation. It was really fun to play with my family. Not only does the game allow you to practice yoga with your family in a new and exciting way, but there are some great messages in the game. One of the cards my 2 year old picked had her say “I’m ok just as I am” two times. Another card has you say what you are talented at, and then pass the card around for the other players to do the same. There was also a gratitude card asking each player to express what they are grateful for. I love how this game teaches and emphasizes a variety of really important values. It’s also really great for coordination, balance, flexibility, etc. I was really impressed with what my kids were able to do.

My family loves Turasa and I am really grateful for the opportunity to try it out. It’s a great way for a family to come together and for kids to express energy in a constructive way while learning new skills. It’s definitely a game we will play for years to come. It truly is a fantastic game. It even won the Tillywig Toy Award in the brain child category. Pretty impressive!
