The Must-Read Book Club
Shari Vilchez-Blatt: Susan took my Children's Yoga Teacher Training years ago and I was blown away when she sent me a copy (we didn't really keep in touch). I loved it instantly! It's beautifully written and illustrated. I read it to my students of all ages and can actually see the sense of peace and calm that it brings to the kids. There aren't all that many kids yoga books out there that keep them engaged or that explain what yoga is. This book nails it!
YCNYC: Favorite quote?
SV-B: "Now I see, I fit in just fine. I am Yoga. I can be anything!"
YCNYC: What one person would you recommend this book to?
SV-B: All people, big and small. But especially children.
YCNYC: What moment or part resonates with you the most?
SV-B: Overall, while I read this book myself or to my students, I think "YES!" after every page. This book shows the benefits and effects of yoga in a kid-friendly way that adults totally get. There is not just one part—it's the book as a whole that resonates with me. But if I had to choose, it would be "I can turn things upside down. I am playful." because that is basically my anthem.
