Author(s): Sarkar, Anjali;
Contributors: Sarkar, Anjali;

An ideal resource for teens and young adults interested in incorporating a yoga practice into their lives, this book answers readers' questions about the origins, benefits, and potential risks of yoga and offers practical advice for getting started.

First developed in northern India more than 5,000 years ago, yoga is now practiced around the world. It can improve strength, flexibility, and body awareness, as well as reduce stress and anxiety. As with any form of exercise, however, it can lead to injury if done incorrectly. For anyone interested in trying yoga for the first time, it's important to find a style and qualified instructor that are a good fit for their individual needs and goals.

Part of Greenwood’s Q&A Health Guides series, Yoga: Your Questions Answered follows a reader-friendly question-and-answer format that anticipates readerS&Rsquo; needs and concerns. Prevalent myths and misconceptions are identified and dispelled, and a collection of case studies illustrates key concepts and issues through relatable stories and insightful recommendations. Each book in the series also includes a section on health literacy, equipping teens and young adults with practical tools and strategies for finding, evaluating, and using credible sources of health information both on and off the internet—important skills that contribute to a lifetime of healthy decision-making.
