Overview

In matchless prose and stunning photographs, the importance and beauty of yoga for pregnant women

Back in print and newly designed, here is the classic text on yoga for expectant mothers by the renowned obstetrician Dr. Frederick Leboyer, illustrated with his own photographs. Leboyer shows how woman can use yoga to move toward healthy and joyous childbearing, and how the health benefits will far outlast the birthing process, for both mother and child. A young Indian woman, Vanita—the daughter of yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar, who provided this book’s introduction—is seen in her daily practice a few short days before giving birth, as Inner Beauty, Inner Light explains the breathing techniques and postures all expectant mothers can use to acquire harmony, elegance, grace, and precision. Moreover, Leboyer explores the inner meaning of yoga for both the inner woman and the child within.

What People are Saying About This

B K. S. Iyengar
"It is my conviction that Yoga helps a mother in delivering a robust and healthy child. It keeps her body trim and lessens the tension in her nerves and mind by teaching her the art of relaxation. There is a sense of freedom and joy, a sense of warmth and love... Dr. Leboyer guides the reader cautiously into and through the techniques with a real sense of direction. There is no confusion... The language is simple and understandable by all."
