A Girl's Guide to Yoga: Over 30 Poses to Practice Anywhere
Following a short description of yoga's origins, the author instructs on poses, or asanas, and shows how each pose imitates nature. She then instructs on using each asana as a way of relaxation and a posture for meditation. Illustrations show how to achieve each asana, what not to do, and how to know the asana is being performed correctly. Ener-Chi Books, written especially for teens, present ideas and exercises that both energize a girl's body and soothe her spirit. The books take inspiration from a variety of Asian practices and exercises--thus, the suffix chi, a Chinese term that denotes internal physical and spiritual bodily energy. Ener-Chi Books feature clear, easy-to-follow directions and illustrations that are both clever and instructive, all presented in full color.
