Teachings on Ethics and Social Action. With a foreword by BKS Iyengar.
Every aspect of our life has a part to play in the greater ecological system, Michael Stone explains in this book. How do we bring this large view to our yoga practice? According to Stone, our responsibility as human beings is to live in a sustainable and respectful way. He says two things need to change. First, we need to understand the relationship between our actions and the effects of our actions. Second, once we see the effect of our actions in the human and non-human world, we need practical skills for learning how to make changes.
Using the five principles (yama) described in the Yoga-Sutra attributed to Patanjali, Michael Stone offers a basis for rethinking ethical action and the spiritual path.
For expecting mothers, yoga is a great way to prepare for birth. Drawing on her long experience as a teacher, Theresa Jamieson has selected exercises and postures that are specific for pregnancy, safe and gentle, and take into account the pregnant body’s ever-changing needs. Color photography illustrates the postures, or asanas, that work best for relaxation and flexibility, while breathing techniques of pranayama, or conscious breathing, and meditation allow women to focus their minds. In addition, seven complete yoga programs are provided that can take pregnant women from the early stages of their journey through the post-natal experience.
A safe and natural way to prepare for a wonderful birth experience!

Harness your inner strength through visualisations and meditations, including some specifically intended for pregnant women that focus on the baby in the womb, the miracle of birth, and the wonder of being a woman. Six half-hour prenatal exercise programs are included, along with dietary suggestions to help ensure a healthy pregnancy. A section on important skills for labor, including meditations, positions, and essential oils, will help you ease the pain and make the most of the life-changing experience. You’ll also find inspiring birth stories in which 11 women explain how yoga played a significant role during pregnancy, labor and birth, and postpartum programs to help you get back in shape after delivery.
You don’t buy a car just so you can change the oil! And you don’t have a baby just to feed it and change his or her diapers. Yet most childcare books treat childhood like a series of problems and miss the heart of the matter–the loving communication and interaction that help your child become a unique individual who loves life. This book is about the fun and heart of parenthood, including: deciding when to have a baby, helping your relationship to stay strong, the special role of fathers, finding a pattern and routine that work for you and your baby, baby massage, “the tigress mother”–protecting your kids, how to chat with babies to stimulate brain growth, teaching good behavior without using fear or physical punishment, making bath times, car times, and shopping times easy and fun, teaching your child about feelings, when your own childhood wasn’t so good, what if you’re a single parent, and preparing for school.
