From the Inside Flap
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.
From the Back Cover
Aqua Yoga guides you through the ideal exercises for easing your pregnancy, preparing for a water birth and recovering strength and tone after giving birth.
Many variations are included to make Aqua Yoga invaluable to swimmers and non-swimmers alike.
No previous experience of yoga is necessary to benefit from these special exercises.
