What people are saying:

Yael has created a wonderful resource for children and those who care for them. From the playful and intriguing illustrations to her careful attention to the insidious impact of trauma on young lives, Yael has contributed a healing tool that will have a tremendous positive impact for many. In her creative and joyful way, Yael reminds us that we do indeed have bodies and that while our bodies may have been the seat of some deeply impactful traumatic experiences they are also the place where we begin the process of healing.

— David Emerson, E-RYT. Director of Yoga Services . Trauma Center at Justice Resource Institute. www.traumacenter.org. Co-author, Overcoming Trauma through Yoga: Reclaiming Your Body.


The incorporation of yoga into our Therapeutic Preschool Program has brought smiles to the faces of children who have experienced trauma. As they learn to soothe their affect through the use of Yael's brilliant yoga adaptations for children they have become calmer, more emotionally integrated, and less aggressive. Yael's work has literally helped our children re-discover the joy of childhood.

Yoga Makes Me Feel ... is a wonderful tool to use when working with youth impacted by trauma. The captivating illustrations of Shanti, the fun-loving purple monkey, doing different yoga positions accompanied with its information on how to create a safe place, both in the body and in the mind, will allow children to begin the healing process. It will be a resource that will have a remarkable positive impact on many.
