Although recommended for grades 4-8, Yoga for You is a great series for all students and their families. Each title in the series focuses on yoga for specific results: stress relief, strength, fitness and flexibility, and mental alertness. Titles are broken down into sections about how one’s feeling, the history of yoga, lifestyle changes, and the yoga poses themselves. All yoga poses are two-page spreads with step-by-step instructions and pop-out boxes with modifications to help increase the benefit of yoga. THOUGHTS: This is a must-have series for all schools (I have it both in print and eBook). I love this series and have used it myself and with my family for family yoga. It’s fun for the adults and kids. Plus, the interactive eBooks are great for phys. ed. classes.
