And the winner is…… Addriya for “Yoga for Small Places”, “Learn With Yoga ABC Yoga Cards for Kids” & “Learn with Yoga ABC Yoga Cards for Kids Instructor Guide” – product review

I recently had the opportunity to review three great products from Addriya (www.addriya.com). All three are OMazing in their own way! Can’t wait to see what    great new products they develop next. Here is a little info about the products and what I liked about each of them:

 

Yoga for Small Spaces cards by Christine Ristuccia, RYT  & Lynn Geddes, RYT – set of 52 cards with positioning cues, benefits, modifications & affirmations. These are perfect to show how yoga can be done “off the mat”. The inclusion of several warm-ups & affirmations were great. I loved it so much that I gave it away as the door prize at my presentation at the Oklahoma Childcare Association Conference (and then ordered one for myself off Amazon.com 🙂 !)

 

 

 

 

 

Learn With Yoga ABC Yoga Cards for Kids cards by Christine Ristuccia, SLP & RYT – set of 26 ABC yoga cards  with verbal cues & benefits (1 pose for each letter) & 26 Instructor Cards with ideas for language development & reading readiness activities for each pose. As a speech-language pathologist, I love how many ideas there are for working on speech, language & reading readiness all in the context of whole-body movement. I work with lots of kids with ADHD & Autism that learn best while moving so these are perfect! The kids also love picking out pose cards to spell their name :).

 

 

 

 

 

Learn with Yoga ABC Yoga Cards for Kids Instructor Guide by Christine Ristuccia, MS, CCC-SLP, RYT. Designed to be used with the yoga cards described above but is also a great stand-alone product as it contains good info about yoga benefits, tips for educators, yoga instructors & parents, forming yoga groups, incorporating motor, basic concept, language and reading/literacy goals, and ideas for quick yoga breaks, etc.
