Gr 7 Up-Beginning with a brief introduction to basic philosophy, Weiss then discusses breathing, meditation, and the yoga postures. One chapter is devoted to the ways in which yoga can be used to alleviate physical discomforts such as headaches or asthma. Readers who associate the discipline with difficult twists and balancing poses may be surprised to find that this book includes only one short chapter on postures or asanas, explaining a few of the easier ones in detail. A photo depicts a young man or woman demonstrating each completed pose. Using a simple, conversational style, the author emphasizes the spiritual side of yoga, showing how it can help teens cope with stress, improve their health, and find inner peace in a hectic world. Color and black-and-white photographs of multiethnic teens contribute to the appeal. Intended for beginners, this book may serve as a starting point for those who want to begin their own practice or who are simply curious. The list of resources, including books, magazines, Web sites, videos, and music, will be useful to report writers as well as to those who want to make yoga a serious part of their lives.-Dawn Amsberry, formerly at Oakland Public Library, CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
