Strike a Pose

Right now I'm reading Strike a Pose by Karen Birkemoe. It's a very cool, very informative book on yoga. The illustrations by Heather Collett are great.


Here's Mine:

"A vinyasa is a series of asanas that are strung together, and you move from one pose to the next in time with each breath."

Review

... a fabulous, comprehensive yoga guide ... (Canadian Children’s Book News )

Product Description

The third book in the Planet Girl series demystifies yoga and reveals how this ancient practice can be a key part of a modern-girl life. By bringing together body, mind and breath, yoga can help girls focus, de-stress and even avoid sports-related injury. All it takes is a patch of level ground, a few minutes and an open mind -- it's that easy. Strike a Pose delivers yoga knowledge and know-how in a fresh way and steers clear of the fluff. The anatomically articulated illustrations clearly depict basic and more advanced poses, while the stay-open ring binding is perfect for hands-free posing. Girls can also pump up their practice with tips on mastering yogic flows, breathing exercises, meditation, mantras and more. Girls can: * Loosen up with Cat pose -- the purr-fect stretch for flexibility * Stand tall on legs made strong with Warrior pose * Show grace under pressure balancing in Dancer pose * Use yoga to help improve their game and cure headaches, nervousness and cramps * Make their own yoga accessories, including a Mat Bag.
