Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond,
This review is from: Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond (Paperback)
All Francoise Freedman's books are excellent and this latest is no exception. What is great about this book is that it is suitable for those who have practiced little or no yoga before and also for experienced yoginis. The book takes you safely through the three trimesters with mini sequences, explaining what muscles you are strengthening and stretching. Common complaints like sciatica and symphysis pubis disorder are also addressed. The beautifully shot photos make everything clear and easy to follow.
The book also takes you through the postpartum period. Unlike most books, this isn't just a small add on at the end of the book. Freedman gives several progressive mini routines to help realign the body and promote strength and vitality.
I can't recommend this book enough!
