Overview

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.
