About The Book

Come explore yoga in a new way with TWIST,
a collection of sixteen original poems sure to inspire even the youngest yogi! Feel the damp soil beneath you as Cobra, and grab hold of a star as Half-Moon. From Low Crow to Eagle and from Triangle to Tree, yoga comes alive with Janet S. Wong's artful creativity. Add vibrant illustrations by Julie Paschkis, and each pose is no longer simply a stretching position, but a picture and a story that will exercise the imagination as well as the body.
