Yoga teacher Michaela Caldwell has created this fourth book in the unique Girl Zone series, exploring issues of importance to girls and young women.
This joyful guide invites girls to get active, have fun, feel strong, and glow with good health. Safe and innovative guidelines introduce girls to the poses, breathing, and mediation exercises of traditional yoga, as well as its long and fascinating history. Unlike other yoga books that concentrate on yoga poses, The Girls’ Yoga Book looks at yoga as it applies to the lifestyles and interests of pre-teen girls. This unique "on and off the mat" approach offers realistic and appealing ways to incorporate principals of yoga into daily life.
Activities encourage readers to take quiet, introspective personal "time-outs", get silly with their friends, express their creativity, and stretch their bodies and minds. Real girls contribute reflections on their own experiences with yoga in Girl Talk sidebars. Yoga M"ohm"ents provide factual information about yoga through the ages.
Vibrant color and joyful design complement an upbeat text encouraging individual expression and balance. Clear writing and tips for incorporating yoga safely and simply ensure the best results possible for all skill and interest levels.
