Description

From the Inside Flap

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 you to stretch and breathe far beyond your capabilities on dry land. Yoga is a centuries’ old practice that promotes balance, energy, deep breathing and relaxation. Together they provide the optimum workout for you — and your baby.Francoise Barbira Freedman has taken classic yoga postures and adapted them for practice in water. Swimming is often recommended in pregnancy, but the author has taken this one step further, modifying the strokes so that they provide better alignment and breathing capabilities.

Aqua Yoga begins with yoga exercises and swimming techniques for pregnancy. These are designed to open the pelvis, develop your breathing and ease aches and pains. Floating relaxations in the water convey you into an anxiety-free state.

If you aim to have a water birth, Aqua Yoga suggests exercises to help reduce the pain of labour, to ease the birth and to open your pelvis in preparation for delivery.

Finally, energising postnatal exercises close up your pelvis, tone your body and strengthen your abdominal muscles.

All the exercises are presented in sequences that are short, simple, effective and safe. Delightful colour photographs clearly illustrate the positions and techniques.
