To coincide with Women’s Health Week, here is a selection of five really great women’s yoga books worthy of space on your bookshelf!
The Woman’s Book of Yoga & Health – Linda Sparrowe & Patricia Walden
This book is one of my absolute favorites! It is broken down into five chapters which sequentially cover the changes in a woman’s body and life as she ages.
Starting with essential sequences & yoga for the menstrual cycle through pregnancy, back care, menopause, osteoporosis and heart health amongst other health conditions.
There is a great deal of written information relevant to each topic alongside well lit black and white photos showing specific sequences.
This book is a great investment to anyone wanting to learn about women’s health & yoga in more depth and it’s a great resource for yoga teachers-in-training and experienced yoga teachers alike.
Thoroughly recommend it!
DK Yoga for Women – Shakta Kaur Khalsa
You can never go wrong with a DK published book!
Bright, colored photography for many sequences covering a range of women’s health topics including menstruation, pregnancy, menopause & aging. Easy to read, easy to understand and easy to follow yoga sequences. A great book for any yoga practitioner.
Bountiful, Beautiful, Blissful – Gurmukh
Specifically for the pregnancy and birth stages of a woman’s life. This book is less of a yoga pose sequence book and more of a meditative and blissful read. Broken up into the three trimesters discussing the physical, mental and emotional changes experienced through pregnancy and ending with preparation for birth and life after birth.
Lots of great advice and exercises on breathing, meditation and relaxation. An informative read for a unique time in a woman’s life.
DK Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond – Francoise Barbira Freedman
Another great book for pregnancy, birth and new motherhood. A winning combination of easy to read, easy to follow and easy to understand sequences and practices for all stages of pregnancy and postpartum.
With the DK stamp of quality this would make a great book for any practitioner starting yoga.
Hip Tranquil Chick – Kimberly Wilson
And now for something a little different!
Hip Tranquil Chick is a funky, inspiring read that is less yoga sequences and more how to bring yoga into all aspects of your life. Explore how to take yoga off of your mat and into your friendships, career, finances and personal style. A really upbeat and alternative yoga book for the chick that you are!
Lots of fun!
