Attending the women’s course was a culmination of many emotions I’ve experienced since becoming a breast cancer survivor 4 years ago. Shakta reminded me that it’s not all about the asanas but the freedom that yoga brings to one’s life. This course helped me to realize that I need to honor and love my body for what it is.

Yoga for Women: Health and Radiant Beauty for Every Stage of Life
By Shakta Kaur Khalsa
Ladies, this one’s for you. The first paragraph includes the words “Yoga and women go together like tea and toast. It’s a cozy, homey fit.”
The hardcover book features the usual clear DK design: lots of photos, tip boxes and a consistent color design (in this case, a delightful mix of lavender, pink, and blue).
There are sensible tips on diet, breathing, and the menstrual cycle. With her warm, confiding tone, the author describes using yoga to guide one through pregnancy, PMS, and the hormonal riptides of menopause. (Khalsa considers her daily yoga practice and meditation—primarily Kundalini but also Hatha—her life’s “greatest blessings.”
Her enthusiasm leads you to believe her.)
She also touches on the seven chakras (“unseen energy sources,” as she describes them) and the importance of ending one’s yoga practice with at least five minutes of meditation. But the absolute best sections of the book are not from Khalsa. She includes short, effective narrations from a variety of women from around the world who talk about stress, illness, the reality of being a mother, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, PMS, and how yoga has helped them transform their lives. Their testimony cements the book’s efectiveness.
Clearly, Yoga for Women is not part of the athletic journey to power that some hip teachers now promise. But for a beginning female student of any age, this possibly the most accessible guide on the market. One might say that Shakti, the eternal feminine force of yoga, rules.
