Armchair Yoga: Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa

The popular pre- and postnatal teacher recommends books for moms.

By Claudia Cummins

Kundalini Yoga teacher Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa dreams of retreating to a distant paradise, without interruption, where she can indulge in two of her favorite pursuits: yoga and reading. For now, however, her busy life lets her dive into cherished books only a few pages at a time. On recent travels Khalsa has managed to squeeze in Niles Elliot Goldstein's God at the Edge, a memoir of a Jewish rabbi's spiritual adventures, and Anita Diamant's The Red Tent, a fictional retelling of the Biblical story of Jacob and his daughter, Dinah, from a feminine perspective. Khalsa, who teaches popular prenatal and postnatal yoga classes in Los Angeles, also recommends Paul Fleiss's Sweet Dreams, Lee Carroll and Jan Tober's The Indigo Children, and Maren Tonder Hansen's Mother Mysteries. Finally she offers up The Path of Practice, Maya Tiwari's account of her recovery from cancer and the ayurveda">Ayurvedic healing practices she learned along the way. "I love to read victory stories," Khalsa says. "If God gives you this life back, he's also saying, 'Now go out and give back.' "
