Reviewers Comments: Shape of Yoga is a booklet of 10 basic yoga poses for families. The booklet encourages families to exercise together with yoga, building strength and flexibility. The yoga poses can be done inside or outside and the only items needed are a yoga mat, towel, blanket, or non-skid floor and comfortable clothing.

Each of the yoga poses have a clever food or nutrition-themed title, such as “standing carrot stick”, “banana peel” and “folding quesadilla”. The pose is accompanied by detailed instructions and 2-3 color photos demonstrating how to do the pose. Photos include parents alongside children of both genders doing the exercises together. The photos represent adults and children of mostly Hispanic ethnicity. Each pose also features a short nutrition tip to help stay healthy. A blank calendar is included at the end of the booklet to help participants track their progress.

Nutrition educators could use this booklet as a guide when teaching types of physical activity to participants, or they could give it as an incentive to participants to use on their own. Because English and Spanish are both included in the same booklet, but in opposite order, it could be confusing (the Spanish pages read right to left, and the English pages read left to right). The printed book is spiral bound at the top and includes a folded cardboard in the back, which allows it to stand on its own. It is available to order at cost or online for free.
