Reader Review
User Friendly and Personal, October 30, 2002
Reviewer: sumukid from Leesburg, VA USA
I love this women's yoga book. I truly enjoyed the combination of hatha yoga and kundalini yoga, the recipes and the meditations. I especially like the conversational and "personal touch" which makes this book both informative and "intimate". It's like practicing with a group of friends who are sharing instead of just lecturing.

Reader Review
A must-have, January 23, 2003
Reviewer: A reader
As a long time practioner of Pilates, a relative newcomer to traditional yoga, and a woman who has, and will, experience some of the health issues, I found this book a great source of reference. What I found most useful, aside from Patricia's yoga poses & Linda Sparrowe's easy-to-read writing style, are the suggested herbal & dietary alternatives throughout the book. Not only do I have a copy, I bought one for all my closest girlfriends!! This book is a definate must-have in any woman's bookcase!!

"Simple practices to help you stay healthy, calm, and strong, and to carry you forward in a natural progression toward wisdom, real beauty, and the strength of realized grace that belongs to all women," promise Machelle M. Seibel, M.D., and Hari Kaur Khalsa, authors of A Woman's Book of Yoga.
The authors, a gynecologist and a yoga instructor, offer prescriptions for the transitions in women's lives. They teach the health and stress-reduction benefits of breathing, postural, and meditation exercises, including particular activities for menstruation, pregnancy, perimenopause and menopause, sexuality, and digestion. Spiritual as well as physical health benefits are stressed: "The goal of yoga is to reveal the connection between the human being and the Divine Self."

This is not a simple self-help book, but a serious, mindful guide for a beginning study of kundalini yoga: philosophy, spirituality, postures (illustrated), meditations, and health advantages are addressed. "The yoga itself is not the goal, but it is the key to opening the door to health, self-love, and self-realization," write the authors. -- Joan Price

About the Author
Machelle M. Siebel, M.D., is a reproductive endocrinologist at the Fertility Center of New England and a clinical professor of gynecology and obstetrics at Boston University School of Medicine. He is an expert in alternative and nutritional approaches to gynecology.

Hari Kaur Khalsa is one of the most respected Kundalini yoga and meditation teachers in the world, and has created specialized yoga programs for pregnant women, senior citizens, and youngsters. She lives in the Boston area.

Reader Review
More than a book about yoga, January 25, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from Natick, MA United States
This book is not your average book about yoga for women, but one that celebrates all aspects of a woman's life cycle. The strength of the book is the collaboration with Dr. Seibel, showing the relationship between the yogic concepts and what we know about the body through modern science. The book is beautiful, with clear instructions and photographs. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in coming to a better understanding of their femininity and celebrating their womanhood.

Reader Review
Every Woman's Yoga - impressive stuff, November 11, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Brooklyn, NY United States
Clear, generous, thorough, accessible, fun... I am so impressed with what Dr. Schmitt has done with this book. There's such a wealth of information here (especially compared to the "coffee table" type yoga books that seem to be propogating in the bookstores now), yet her book is somehow light - easy to read and apply.

Reader Review
A wonderful book for women, November 26, 1999
Reviewer: Mrs Shelina Gorain from Canada
This is a wonderful book with specific reference to the main biological stages of a womans life & identifies which asanas (poses) should be practiced or avoided at those stages.. i found this book during my pregnancy at a time when i was confused whether to continue with certain yoga poses.. the book helped to clarify all my questions and has helped me continue with yoga confidently during pregnancy. My copy of this book is published in india in 1983 & subsequent publications may have a different format, but my copy is not the sort of book that you can open up at a page, & simply copy a pose by looking at a picture, some of the newer yoga books i have noticed follow this "easy" format which is weak in content & high in glossy pictures.. this book is very rich in content - be prepared to spend some time reading in detail about useful background information as well as the poses & their effects & various techniques for achieving a pose. -- This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
