Product description

This title features harmonizing exercises in water for pregnancy, birth and beyond. It is an inspiring guide offering ideal exercise and routines for easing pregnancy and preparing for a water birth. It also includes energizing postnatal exercises that will help to close up the pelvis, tone the body, and strengthen the abdomen, and will aid in recovering strength and muscle tone after giving birth. Accessible text, easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step photographs guide you through all the exercises. Water is a medium especially suited to pregnant women, and wonderfully soothing to those who have just given birth. It is therapeutic and supportive, allowing stretching and breathing to a greater degree than on dry land. Yoga promotes balance, energy, deep breathing and relaxation, and in water provides the optimum workout. The book starts with exercises and techniques designed to open the pelvis, develop breathing, ease aches and pains and develop positive energy. Postnatal exercises help to close up the pelvis, tone the body and strengthen muscles. All the sequences are short, simple, effective and safe, and are clearly illustrated throughout.
