Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5 Up-A useful introduction. As the author points out in the first chapter, yoga can help teens deal with mood swings, do better in school, enhance sports performance, and "stay calm when your parents are bugging you!" The chapters on breathing, exercises, and relaxation techniques (meditation included) are all well done, as is the main chapter on the poses/asanas. The author gives a clear explanation of the six distinct types of yoga and the different styles, the main type of yoga practiced in the West, and the one that this book focuses on. One chapter includes quotes from teens about the benefits they have experienced from yoga. Step-by-step instructions with illustrations on how to do 18 basic poses are included. The chapter "Adapting Yoga for You" gives modifications of techniques for people of different abilities, including those who are disabled. Black-and-white drawings show the poses being described. A helpful glossary with pronunciation guides is welcome as is an index to the asanas. This title is much more in-depth and informative than Stefanie Iris Weiss's Everything You Need to Know about Yoga: An Introduction for Teens (Rosen, 1999).

Review

I Love Yoga appetizingly presents a veritable feast guaranteed to satisfy the hunger of curiosity… Stylistically, teen and pre-teen alike will relish the author’s relaxed, conversational tone… I Love Yoga fills that special marketing niche inhabited by ‘tweens and teens’… [It is] a well-conceptualized, comprehensive menu of yoga basics that makes for pleasant recreational reading. Highly Recommended.”
CM Magazine

“Ellen Schwartz touches on the new popularity of yoga… This is…an upbeat introduction to yoga, well designed to spark the interest of kids and teens.”

I wanted to learn the Sanskrit words for yoga poses and this book was very helpful! The author provides the pronunciation for the Sanskrit words as well.

I received my yoga certification and am interested in teaching yoga to middle school kids. This book explains yoga in an understandable way for teens. It is accurate with its history, and provides a little fun and humor. I think after reading this book,
most teens would realize the wonderful benefits of yoga and sign up for a class!
