This book covers alot of important issues for teens in a way that appeals to them. I purchased the book for myself as a teacher but ended up buying more to satisfy the requests of a couple of teens. Pictures are good and cues for the poses are simple and clear.

This a great book for young teenage girls (no boys are pictured). The young models are all very pretty, but also very natural and "real," a refreshing departure from the overly made-up and airbrushed models we are used to seeing. This is a great book for promoting true self-esteem in girls. The yogic principles are presented in a way that teens can easily understand and apply to their lives. This is a very well-designed and possitive book for teens. For younger kids, please take a look at this: Power Brain Kids

I bought this book because I am a PE teacher and teach Yoga classes to my students. It is a wonderful resource for me to have, and the content is perfect for teenagers. I received the book in great condition!

This book is a little treasure for teenagers, whether or not they have experienced the incredible benefits of yoga. It combines the ancient wisdom of yoga and the author's sound advice for teenagers growing up in a complicated world. Parents who missed the message growing up will benefit too! The DVD is a great bonus. A special gift for any teengager you know.

I just graduated from college and I'm not new to yoga, but this warm and friendly book got me into practicing yoga again. The approach is inviting, not intimidating, and although the instructions are perhaps a little too basic for someone who's used to seeing a set of at least 5 steps for a single yoga pose, they are concise and thorough enough to appeal to a teenager or someone who gets confused by long instructions (like me!). The fun and colorful layout is appealing and easy to follow. The book is also full of compassionate advice on how to incorporate the components of yoga into your daily life.

My friend was thinking about getting into Yoga. So, we went to the Library
to see what they had. We came across this book, and thought it would be a
great introduction to Yoga. Unfortunately the the book was very worn and the
DVD shot. So, I went on Amazon and found a copy for a great price. I placed
the order, and it arrived very quickly and in perfect shape. The book and
dvd did everything we were hoping for. An easy introduction to Yoga, that
was mild and well illustrated. Thank You "great for young and old"

I wish I had this been given this book when I was a teen!

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is raising or knows a teen. Author, Chryssicas, demystifies yoga and explains why yoga is so beneficial during the teen years, especially with all the pressures teens face today.

Best of all, she makes it FUN! This book is colorful with a hip, easy-to-read format that teens love. The author's diary entries are a big favorite and demonstrate how yoga, as well as laughter, can enrich your life.

A must read for teens (and parents, too!)

My friend and I run a Yoga Club at our highschool, and we are constantly referring to this book during our club meetings. The members of the club (whom we teach yoga to) seem to really enjoy the practices in this book which are simple but perfect for beginners, and most of the people in our club are beginners. I've given this book as a gift and told many others to buy it. It's perfect for beginner yogis, not just teens, and there is a wonderful DVD.
