This book features specially developed poses and exercises for all stages of pre-natal pregnancy and post-birth motherhood. Breathing techniques and relaxation sequences help you to nurture yourself and your growing baby, from conception to birth, and beyond. It includes exercises to help mothers recover from difficult or complex births, and special routines are given for both bottle and breast feeding. Postures gently help you develop or regain physical strength, tone muscles, relax, and bond with your baby.

It features over 550 photographs clearly show how to perform the exercises, which are suitable for complete beginners and experienced yoga practitioners alike. Yoga is the perfect exercise for pregnant and post-birth mothers. It is a gentle and safe means of keeping the body toned and supple, of alleviating aches and pains, and helping to maintain energy levels. Yoga exercises can also be helpful when trying to conceive.
