Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YAA book that promotes the idea of strong minds and bodies in an appealing manner. Each page has colorful illustrations, charts, and large print. The straightforward presentation is devoid of New Age jargon and will lead readers to an appreciation and comprehension of this ancient art. Five main principles of yoga based on the tenet of "simple living and high thinking" are introduced. Each one is explained and illustrated in a separate section of the book. The chapter on proper exercise is the longest section and goes through a complete workout session with full-color photographs and drawings of each position. The mental and physical benefits of each position are listed as well as possible problems, and variations for different skill levels. The chapter on vegetarian diet has 20 pages of recipes using familiar ingredients and utensils.Penny Stevens, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
