Description

Selected for inclusion in the Best Books for the Teen Age 2004 List by the New York Public Library.

Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years, but its surge in popularity among young people is new. I Love Yoga is not a how-to book. It is the book for those who are already hooked, as well as for those who are just curious about this ancient activity.

Ellen Schwartz – author of I’m a Vegetarian presents the history of yoga, different styles, yoga benefits, concerns, cautions, misconceptions, equipment, and basic postures. There is information for those with physical disabilities and tips on yoga as part of a lifestyle – even for those who do not use the poses – especially to de-stress. Fascinating information is offered in a teen-friendly format.

Editorial 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.”
