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.

Format: Paperback
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 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.

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 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!

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!)
