! I would recommend this book to all young women and yoga teachers who teach young women. And.... I have to admit, I also found valuable information for myself and my yoga students! * Angela Phillips, Owner, Director, Teacher, Angela Phillips Yoga Studio * Yoga Girls

. * Jesse Carter, yoga student * The book really opened by eyes to a whole new side to yoga. Before I was just going through the motions and now I feel like I am breathing into each move, sculpting my soul, and creating a reality I love being a part of. * Jenna Carlton, yoga student * What is very appealing about Yoga Girls

, although the exercises could be carried out by anyone) to make time and space for yoga, self-reflection, relaxation and play with colours. There are even little projects to attempt such as making a mala (bracelet) or a mask, and larger projects such as defeating one's emotional gremlins. The overriding attraction of this book is that it encourages the reader - both younger and older girls - to turn herself into a project and to feel good about herself inside and out. * Optimum Nutrition *
