Yoga for Happy Mums focuses on the real issues that mums of young children face: lack of sleep, low energy levels, stress, negative emotions (anxiety, guilt, depression, anger and irritability), fluctuating hormones, a weakened immune system, issues with body confidence and difficulties with addictions and relationships. Each chapter includes a discussion about how the particular issue applies to mums, a questionnaire so you can identify which are particularly relevant to you, some suggested points for reflection, guidance from the Kundalini Yoga tradition (including Top Tips such as dietary suggestions), a breathing practice, a physical Yoga set and a meditation.
The book is fully illustrated, with easy-to-understand instructions so that you can practise at home. You do not need any previous experience, or to be particularly flexible or physically fit in order to practise these sets.
Kundalini Yoga is a comprehensive form of Yoga that uses the breath, sound (mantra), postures and meditation. It is an ancient tradition which can empower you to meet the challenges of modern life with grace and equanimity. Unlike other forms of Yoga which were originally practiced in isolation, Kundalini Yoga has always been a householder’s yoga, designed for people with the commitments of family and work.
‘This book is written with such passion for the subject that it leaps off the page. Here is a yoga teacher who knows her stuff, yet understands entirely the reality of trying to fit yoga (or anything replenishing for that matter) into the relentless pace that is modern family life. The yoga poses are easy to manage, well explained and the best bit is that it is designed totally to fit into even the most pushed of schedules. Wonderful book. Highly recommend.
‘I cannot recommend the benefits of Puran Prem Kaur’s work and Kundalini Yoga enough. Yoga for Happy Mums allows you to learn from Puran Prem’s own journey through parenthood and life via her inspired wisdom, loving advice and actionable guidance, all from the comfort of your own home.’
‘This is a lovely book which shows how you can apply Kundalini yoga to your life. It’s organised into easily accessible chapters which will resonate with most mums’ lives and it’s very easy to dip into and read a chapter at a time. The whole book has been meticulously researched with clear references and easy to read footnotes.
I have attended Puran Prem’s classes and love the breathing techniques she has introduced. It is great now to have them in a book with easy to follow instructions, so that I can try them at home.’
