I can’t believe it, but we are down to only two dozen books. One by one, each copy of Yoga 4 Teens, An Instructor’s Guide for Teaching Yoga to Teenagers has sold through the YogaMinded website and teacher trainings to people across the globe. It is pleasing to know that teachers in Australia, Canada, England, Japan, Vietnam, France and other countries are benefiting from this book. More importantly, people who have the Yoga 4 Teens Instructor’s Guide are taking the work of reaching out to teach teenagers seriously. This is very heartening to know that so many people want to make a difference in the lives of teenagers through yoga!
When Jennifer Lightsey and I co-authored this book it was a labor of love of our work with teens. We questioned whether anyone else would care to learn from our experience. However, we forged ahead with the project because it helped us clarify our own thoughts on the matter of teaching teens and the unique-ness of the demographic. We said to ourselves, “if no one else ever buys this book, it’s been worth the effort (which took 3 years).” In fact, not only have we almost sold every copy, but we both have referenced the book on many occasions when we are rusty or feel out of touch with teen yoga.
How surprised we have been and encouraged to know that there are like minds around the world.
Now that we are almost out of copies, it seems like a new chapter will begin. Transferring our knowledge and encouragement to work with teens will have a different medium. I am nostalgic for what this book has done for so many people and particular, the benefit it has potentially brought to teens themselves.
My wish is that individuals around the world who have an inclination to share yoga with teenagers will order one of the remaining Yoga 4 Teens Guidebooks and be empowered to create teen yoga classes in their communities.
