Pregnancy should be a positive experience, but many women can find it unsettling due to increased hormone levels, physical changes and external pressures.

Yoga has always been a way to rejuvenate and reenergise our body, and now, through this book, you can discover how Yoga during pregnancy can be an invaluable tool too, not only as a form of exercise but as way of learning to accept change, and maintain a positive outlook. It can also minimise common symptoms like morning sickness and constipation, ease labour and delivery, and help restore the body after childbirth.

Pregnancy Yoga offers a positive method of exercise, and will guide you through your pregnancy and prepare your body and mind for your new arrival.

Packed with illustrations, guidelines and easy-to-follow instructions, Pregnancy Yoga can become your go-to book during pregnancy.
