Hilarious :)

This book is absolutely charming and very very funny. I laughed, and boy did I need it. :) It helps you laugh at the hard stuff, and be even more grateful for the wonderful things. Perfect gift for a new mom familiar with yoga. :)

Yoga Mommas, this is a great read!

When this book arrived, I sat down on my comfy chair and read each and every "mommy asana" in one sitting. Then I read it again. And again. Then I shared the book with my neighbors and friends. We've never laughed so much. It was wonderful. I found myself nodding along while reading about these hilarious postures. Some of Julie's "poses" were dead on. I had thought I was the only mother who experienced a few of these until now. I absolutely love this book and I recommend it to all mothers, whether you are yoga-moms or not. It's witty, humorous and so very true. I plan on giving this as my new signature baby shower gift. Definitely a must read!

perfect for any moms

I just had my first baby in June and I was given this book by my grandmother. I cannot think of a more perfect book! It can be read over and over again and still be hillarious each time. New and experienced mothers alike will get a kick out of this book. It makes the perfect shower gift!

A mommy from Los Angeles

This is a very cute book. It's a perfect stocking stuffer and/or extra baby shower gift!

Motherhood: A Never-Ending Contortion

"Any mom who's tried to answer the phone while nursing the baby and keeping the toddler out of the oven is a Mommy Yoga practitioner. Any mom who's ever carried three small children, a gallon of milk, and a jumbo bag of diapers across a crowded parking lot is a Mommy Yoga enthusiast." - From the book As any Mom knows, bending, stretching, and contorting are all in a day's work. Whether doing the Monkey, the Kangaroo, or the popular Don't Make Me Stop This Car, Moms naturally morph into the roles her little ones need (demand!), and in the process, strike amusingly awkward poses. Mommy Yoga: The 50 Stretches of Motherhood is a hilarious book by Julie Tilsner highlighting the overextensions Moms face every day. Lavish, colorful illustrations by Susan McKenna accompany Tilsner's humorous prose, providing comic release for harried Moms. Some of the poses you'll find in Mommy Yoga include: Downward Fish - With feet firmly planted on the floor, bend at the waist and extend your arms into the toilet bowl. Scoop out all plastic toys. Rinse as needed. No Go - Dressed and ready to go to an appointment, hold baby on your hip and thrust one leg out the front door with confidence that, today, you'll be on time. Freeze and hold when baby suddenly throws up all over herself and you. Breathe through your mouth. Regard now-smiling baby and turn, slowly, until you're back inside. Resolve to repeat pose in fresh clothes, or finish up by reaching into your purse for your cell phone. Horse/Downward-Facing Frog - Start on your hands and knees, eyes looking down. Lower your body to the floor to allow one child onto your back for Horse pose. Let their weight smash you to the floor with your arms and legs splayed. Hold for 5 minutes or until your spouse comes (to) your rescue. Laugh-out-loud in some parts, the book Mommy Yoga serves as a delightful tribute to the balancing act of Motherhood. Moms of young children will no doubt think or say "Oh my God, that is *so* true!" At least, I did! This would make a lovely gift for new Moms, as well as a gift for Mother's Day. Mom's of small children will be amused no matter *what* holiday or occasion it's received! Note: I was all set to give this book 5 stars, but while reviewing it, I noticed that the Horse/Downward Yoga page omits the word "to", which I put in parenthesis above. It's a shame that this charming book is marred by such a glaring editorial oversight.
