Harmonizing Exercises in Water for Pregnancy, Birth, and Beyond
by Francoise Barbira Freedman
With Forewords by Michel Odent and Dianne Garland
From the book's jacket:
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 relaxation exercises 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, energizing exercises heal your body after the stress of giving birth. The modified swimming strokes and yoga sequences tone your body and strenthen your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.
All the exercises are presented in sequences that are short, simple, effective and safe. Delightful color photographs clearly illustrate the positions and techniques.
