Learn to use Canva as your yoga sequence builder with Yoga Paper’s printable yoga cards and stickers. Create personalized printable yoga sequences in PDF format using free Canva templates.

Are you a passionate yogi, a yoga teacher, or perhaps in the midst of your yoga teacher training? Welcome to Yoga Paper! With the help of Canva and Yoga Paper’s digital resources, you’ll have a personal yoga sequence builder at your fingertips.

In this article, you’ll learn how to create your own yoga sequences using Yoga Paper’s free Canva templates and digital yoga stick figures from Etsy. As the founder and designer, Chiara, I’m dedicated to providing digital yoga resources to simplify and enrich your journey.

In this guide, we’ll dive into how to use two of my most popular products, Yoga Stickers and Yoga Cards, coupled with the user-friendly design capabilities of Canva.

Why Canva? It’s an incredibly versatile and easy-to-navigate platform that lets you create professional and visually appealing designs with minimal effort. To make your experience even smoother, I’ve crafted exclusive Canva templates designed to facilitate your yoga sequence creation process. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Familiarize Yourself with Yoga Paper’s Products

First things first, let’s explore the resources available to you from Yoga Paper. There are two key products you’ll need to know:

  1. Yoga Cards: These are digital JPG files that include yoga stick figures along with pose names in both English and Sanskrit. They are a perfect choice if you like to have the names of the poses at your fingertips while planning your sequences.
  2. Yoga Stickers: These are PNG files that consist only of yoga stick figures, without pose names. They offer a simple, clean visual representation of each pose. Ideal if you prefer a minimalist look.

Step 2: Get Set Up on Canva

Next, if you’re using a mobile device, you’ll want to visit your device’s app store and download the free Canva app. However, I highly recommend using a desktop and accessing Canva via a web browser for a more expansive and user-friendly experience. If you choose the desktop route, simply visit Canva’s website and sign up for a free account.

Step 3: Open Your Yoga Paper Canva Template

Now that you’re set up with Canva, it’s time to explore the diverse range of Yoga Paper templates available to suit your unique needs. I offer a variety of formats, including DIN A4, Letter, Instagram Square, and Instagram Portrait.

If you’re looking to create printable yoga sequences for convenient at-home printing, my A4 or Letter templates are the ideal choice. By exporting your designs as PDF files, you can ensure high-quality prints that perfectly capture your sequences.

Alternatively, if you’re eager to share your sequences on Instagram, my Instagram templates are a perfect fit. Export your designs as JPG files and effortlessly upload them to your Instagram feed or story, captivating your followers with your personalized yoga journeys.

Step 4: Upload Your Yoga Cards or Stickers to Canva

Now you’ll want to upload your chosen Yoga Paper products. Simply click on the ‘Uploads’ tab on the left-hand side, then ‘Upload Files’, and select the Yoga Paper product files you want to use. Canva will upload your Yoga Cards or Stickers and they’ll be conveniently stored under your ‘Uploads’ tab, ready for you to use.

Step 5: Customize Your Sequence

Here’s where your creativity gets to shine. Drag and drop your uploaded poses onto the template. It’s as easy as dragging your chosen pose onto the existing image in the template to replace it. You can also adjust the size and orientation of the poses to fit your sequence perfectly.
