It has come to my attention that our book, Yoga 4 Teens, An Instructor’s Guide to Teaching Yoga to Teenagers, is being sold online for ridiculously high prices. While I can say a lot of good things about capitalism given my Masters of Business degree, this usurious practice would certainly not qualify as one of them. Caveat Emptor, let the buyer beware.
Our Instructor’s Guide has received much positive feedback and people from the around the world have have benefited from the advice we lay out in this 231 page book. Knowing that we are helping other teachers create effective yoga classes for teens is its own reward for the countless hours and dare we say, years that we have dedicated to making this book possible.
We do not want our potential customers, i.e. caring adults who want to serve teens and help them experience more peace in their life, to pay more than they should for our book. However, this is the reality.
Be informed. As our book is self-published, it is sold ONLY through our YogaMinded website and through Amazon by Mutiny Media only. While the name is unconventional, Mutiny Media is my husband’s surfing video distribution company and my third party shipper. All other vendors are re-selling the book from us without our knowledge or consent. My latest count showed four additional vendors on Amazon all selling for more than double our suggested retail price. Additionally, there are six offers for used copies of our book selling for between $149.02 and $370.81!
While I abhor the thought of some any yoga teacher paying almost four hundred dollars for our book, I should note that these “resellers” are acting entirely within the law. Basically, if they can find someone to pay four times our suggested retail price, it’s their gain and the consumer’s loss (literally!). Now you understand why I had to get the word out.
Don’t be fooled! Buy your Instructor’s Guide for Teaching Yoga to Teenagers from Mutiny Media on Amazon or from YogaMinded. You should not be paying more than our suggested retail price of $74.95 plus shipping charges.
