There is a wealth of broad ranging knowledge in this comprehensive book. The author utilizes confident storytelling which is underpinned by obvious academic rigour to explore many subjects that relate to women and the safe practice of yoga. The book however is not timid and invites the wild yogini to embrace her power offering practical and intelligent ways to do so. I often felt a sense of homecoming as I reflected on my own practice and the ways that we sometimes go against our own feminine wisdom in pursuit of more male oriented goals. There is enough in this book to keep a beginner occupied for years and for teachers there is much to explore and question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have yoga text 8 April 2014
I bought this on Saturday and cant believe how powerful it is. A yoga book written for me - a feminist yogini. The opening chapters are interesting and I've started to work with the practices. I think it will take years to become comfortable with them all but I'm really looking forward to getting there. This should be on every woman's bookshelf as well as every serious yoga student's or teacher's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yogic Epic! 18 July 2014
This is an epic of a yoga book. As a feminist and a teacher of yoga, I have always sought out the teachings and writings that nurture these aspects and are wholly respectful of both and am so very pleased that Yoni Shakti ticks all the boxes and more for me. Much of what is written has reinforced previously held knowledge, but so refreshing to see it come together all in one place. There's something for everyone really, and I am hard-pushed to pick out anything in particular. If your path is that of the Divine Feminine, then this is your go-to in yoga books. Also good to see it in black and white long-held views of mine that up until now, I had been fearful of voicing due to the perception of 'disloyalty' to yoga or the tradition. It is wonderful to be able to free the voice around these [often grey] areas. Would be wonderful to see this on all teacher training recommended reading lists, especially if we are to re-balance the approach of teaching and to empower future teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars i wept for the yogic truth in this book... 25 April 2014
By Su
I cannot recommend this book enough. As a yoga therapist with 750+ teacher training in India, I had begun to struggle with my practice in recent years. I found my intuition guiding me away from the ‘traditional’ teachings under which I have trained. Uma, the beautiful powerful Uma, explained why. The book is extensively researched – 700 pages long and is the missing piece in the yoga jigsaw. I literally wept whilst reading the first few pages because I felt it as a deep and forgotten truth, it was a homecoming for my practice. I would encourage you to financially express your gratitude for the work undertake by this amazing teacher directly from the site - yonishakti.co and encourage a world where we honour each other for our gift and teachings directly. (rather than multinationals that sap our souls for profit!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Strongly recommended read. 18 Aug 2014
This is an exceptional yoga book. Like all great reads it has been very thoroughly researched by a prolific, tireless and conscientious yogi, Uma Dilsmore-Tuli. I believe this is her fourth book and probably her most impressive and one can only begin to wonder what this leading women's author might turn her pen to next.

Yoni Shakti is a complete and perfectly written guide to understanding and experiencing the profound power that we have as women.
