Pregnancy Yoga: A Practice for Each Trimester
Pregnancy is a time of change and celebration, as well as anticipation and anxiety. Yoga brings great awareness to what is going on within you and it gives you energy, restoring what you are putting into baby while also preparing you for birth.
The three yoga practices on this DVD, which are appropriate for your first, second and third trimesters, combine breathing exercises with postures that safely strengthen your arms and legs and stretch the torso and spine to create space for growing baby. The beginning of each practice also focuses on Kegel exercises, which are vital for keeping the pelvic floor strong during pregnancy and for after.
This DVD does not present actual or modified Ashtanga yoga sequences. They are vinyasa sequences presented by an Ashtanga teacher who also teaches Pregnancy Yoga.
