I'm a yoga teacher, about to teach a prenatal class. I bought this book because Judith Lasater is an excellent teacher and I hoped to get some ideas for my class. The 23 pages of this book devoted to prenatal yoga were quite helpful. I just expected more. This is billed as a Rodmell Press "Yoga Shorts" and it is. The book would probably be most helpful for a pregnant woman who is new to yoga. She would learn 6 poses, 3 of them supported. For everyone else, I'd recommend going with Lasater's RELAX AND RENEW.

if this is everything that a mom-to-be needs to know then she will be pretty much in the dark! not much in this book on yoga. in fact there are about 3 poses and that's it. very disappointing

Great for new students to practice at home because there are simple instructions and images of props. Lacking for teachers who have exposure to restorative and iyengar teachings.

I love Judith Lasater, but this book left me wanting more. There are about 5 asanas presented (of course in great detail with pictures). As a teacher with experience in restorative and iyengar style, nothing new was presented. To be fair, I have used the principles and asanas in her book as a creative jumping point for teaching prenatal yoga. I would recommend this book to a yoga student who has only had exposure to vinyasa, hot, power yoga prior to pregnancy as these simple postures will change their lives. For a teacher or student of restorative these may seem basic. Her mantras offered in the end also disappointed me, as again I felt they were basic and left me wanting more. But there is nothing wrong with a book that drives you to expand on the topic and find your own creativity!

i love judith lasater's work but this book was WAY shorter than i expected and i found it lacking in the posture department. If i had read the other reviews i would have seen that already :) I hope she'll write a longer version one day!
