Reader Review
Yoga moms-to-be: This book is terrific!, April 25, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from Sierra Madre, CA United States
BEAUTIFUL, BOUNTIFUL, BLISSFUL is an amazing introduction to the technology of Kundalini Yoga and meditation for expectant women. As with her powerful first book, EIGHT HUMAN TALENTS, Gurmukh presents practical information, divided into sections based on the three trimesters of pregnancy. Each section is a wealth of knowledge and insight into the choices that pregnant women and their loved ones face; specifically, subjects like breastfeeding, labor, diet, exercise, the decision of where to birth, and mothering. In the spirit of attending one of Gurmukh's classes, the sections conclude with perfect and powerful meditation suggestions to address the emotional and spiritual needs of the new mother.

Gurmukh's positivity and encouraging tone throughout the book and her use of real-life examples from her own experiences and those of her students make this volume very enjoyable to read and share with others. Another terrific feature of the book is the presentation of the information by trimester. This will make mothers feel organized and able to "check off" many of their concerns as they address them in a way that makes perfect sense of the baby's development inside of them. The simple pencil illustrations in the book are a celebration of women's pregnant bodies, and nicely demonstrate exercises and meditations.

This book is a delight to read, an attractive reference, the perfect gift for expectant mothers, and a wonderful addition to one's own library of yoga, health, pregnancy, and parenting titles.

Reader Review
Excellent advice and exercise for pregnancy, May 23, 1999
Reviewer: ahkrivanek@yahoo.com from Seattle, WA
I highly recommend this book to women 14 weeks pregnant and on. I actually took yoga classes with Francoise in Cambridge, UK during my second pregnancy. The preparation was exquisite and prepared me and baby for a glorious childbirth experience. The book is well organized and easy to read so that you can prepare for a natural birth as it is meant to be. No one can predict a birth experience, but this book helps to take the experience into your own hands and avoid medical intervention. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Finally a beautiful exercise book!, August 21, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Fairhaven, MA USA
Over the years I have bought alot of work out books and found them to be quite depressing. All the pictures would remind me of a bad gym class in the seventh grade. Baby Om far surpassed the other books I have bought in terms of quality. The writing and photos match the state of mind I want to acheive. So I picked this book because it was the best looking . . . and found it was jam packed with poses, exercises, baby messages, and lots of other good info. Great baby shower present.

Book Description
S-T-R-E-T-C-H, STRENGTHEN, AND MEDITATE—WITH YOUR BABY

Practicing yoga with your baby—as you hold your baby, have your baby next to you, or have your baby leaning against your thighs or atop your belly—is a wonderful way to add joy to your first year together. Popular yoga teacher Jyothi Larson shares the specially adapted yoga poses she has taught to hundreds of moms and their “Buddha babies,” her term for the happy and calm babies in her classes.

Whether you are new to yoga or an experienced student, whatever shape you are in, you are in the perfect place to practice yoga. In this beautifully illustrated book with easy-to-follow instructions, Larson presents twenty routines that help you get back in shape faster as you bond with your baby. Included are:

• prenatal yoga, with a focus on the last trimester
• what to do after birth through the first six weeks, with special poses for women who have had C-sections
• modified yoga poses that respect your changing post-pregnancy body and give all of yoga’s benefits—stretching, strengthening, and relaxing
• fun yoga moves that encourage your baby’s natural flexibility and growth
• breathing and relaxation exercises as well as partner postures
and much more!

Experience the joy of yoga while bonding with your baby.


Reader Review
Excellent Resource!, March 11, 2003
Reviewer: Jessica Ramsey from Bear, DE United States
I am a fitness instructor for prenatal and post partum women and I just love this book. I debated between several of the "mom-yoga" type books and I'm so glad I decided on this one. The exercises are safe, easy to follow, and wonderfully illustrated. It is even easy to follow if you are not a "yogi". My only criticism is that the binding does not lay flat so it's difficult to review the exercises during your workout. Otherwise, I recommend it for both prenatal (an entire chapter is dedicated) and postpartum women.

Pregnancy Perfection, April 6, 2001
Reviewer: Pamela L. Duszynski from San Francisco, CA United States
Yoga is one of the most beneficial exercises for pregnant women. In this book Rosalind Widdowson delivers a number of the most effective yoga poses for pregnant women. One of the best things about the book is that it has easy to read and follow instructions for each pose. Along with each set of instructions, could be anywhere from two to three pictures demonstrating the pose. Verbal and visual learners alike will gain easy practice with this book. Additionally, the book talks about breathing and the importance of practicing yoga breathing for mother and baby. Believe me, practicing from this book will make your pregnancy more enjoyable and endurable. One of the best things is that many mothers continue yoga after birth because of the benefits this book outlines and introduces. A must read for any soon to be mother!

Reader Review
Covers prenatal yoga and provides lots of general info, too!, July 17, 2003
Reviewer: Vanessa (see more about me at Amazon.com) from Dallastown, PA United States
As a prenatal yoga instructor, I find this book to be very user-friendly, full of photos and illustrations, some original stuff that you won't find in every book on yoga for pregnancy. It contains not only programs suitable for the three trimesters, but also yogic breathing practices, simple ways to incorporate kegels, pelvic floor visualizations, a guided relaxation, very basic info on the chakras, nutritional information, tips for relieving backache and performing daily activities with optimal alignment. The Teasdill book is very pleasing to the eye, enjoyable and easy to read. I just love the "Salute to the earth - growing into gravity" series of poses. This series alone contains some positions useful during labor and delivery as well as in preparation for the big day. There is also a page of positions specifically useful for labor. There are other visualizations and meditation techniques suggested for use leading up to and during the birthing process, general info on the stages of labor and reminders of what may serve you during each stage. There is also a chapter on life after birth which includes yoga postures for recovery as well as general info on breastfeeding, nutrition, what to expect emotionally. This book does include a bit of yoga philosophy. The last lines of the book state, "Yoga is not just a system of stretching and meditation: yoga is awareness, yoga is living in the present, yoga is union, synthesis and integrity. Yoga is life." Preparing for birth requires more than just physical preparation. A lot of birthing is mental, being able to stay present for each contraction and rest between rather than creating more tension and pain in the body in anticipation of what may come, "complaining mind." The mindfulness and awareness of body and mind that come from the meditative aspects of performing the poses or sitting in meditation are valuable beyond the physical preparation. If natural birth interests you, you might want to check out Ina May Gaskin's Guide to Natural Childbirth. Another good book on prenatal yoga is Janet Balaskas' Preparing for Birth with Yoga. Wendy Teasdill's book has a more informal, conversational feel to it than the Balaskas book, if that is of interest. Makes is very easy and fun to read!

Reader Review
Prenatal yoga: union with the Goddess, January 13, 2003
Reviewer: Gabrielle Sedita from Earlysville, Virginia USA
Prenatal yoga is the perfect companion for a beautiful, conscious birth. Here is a book for women who embrace the true meaning of what yoga is: Union with the absolute. It is not merely a book of postures for improving common pregnancy discomforts, but a true guide to being a woman with child, in all that this encompasses: living in our bodies as in the temple of the Goddess and of the child to come, embodying the tremendous energy and power that are ours to reclaim through the initiations of pregnancy and childbirth. Along with potent asanas preparing women for the journey of childbirth and becoming aligned and established in their true selves, are the author's own odyssey and growth into motherhood.

This is a very personal book, both because Jeannine Parvati Baker invites us into her sacred space, and because she constantly invites us to find our own sacred space through the postures, conscious parenting decisions, and contemplation. It is a book to treasure and return to long after pregnancy, simply to steep in the sancticity of pregnancy. It is one of those gems of childbirth publications that makes you want to find a quiet space to relish being woman, and simply being.

In addition, Prenatal Yoga not only is an honest look at the state of birth in the modern world, but a relief from those books that anesthesize families into thinking everything will be just fine if only they choose the right doctor. Through the examples of Baker's six births, ranging from doctor assisted to finally a freebirth, waterbirth, lotus-birth, the book urges women to look within to find their truth. She narrates how her truth was to birth ecstatically with the Goddesses and her partner as sole support. It is a choice she presents as both accessible and responsible when well-prepared.

Finally, you will enjoy Prenatal Yoga for the quality of the prose, the vivid poetry, and beautiful photographs of the author and her growing family. A must-read!

Reader Review
Yoga for Pregnancy, May 5, 2000
Reviewer: Stefanie Delvis from Nashotah, Wisconsin
As a prenatal yoga instructor I found this book very helpful in getting ideas for my classes. I love the fact that there is the symbols in the corner to show which positions are good for what trimester. This makes it easy for anyone to regulate which positions should be done. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is just starting out in yoga or who wants to stay fit and flexible throughout their pregnancy.
