Yoga teaches you to relax at times of discomfort and will help you fight the urge to tighten up when you feel the pain, and instead practice your breathing techniques to gain focus and a more relaxed body and mind. This in turn also helps speed up the whole birthing process. When you practice yoga, you are toning and stretching your muscles with hardly any impact on your joints, which is ideal for pregnant women.If you have practiced yoga before, you’ll find these routines a little gentler than what you’re most probably used to. It is important if you are a strong practitioner of yoga or have had a strong physical fitness program, to listen to your body. You will need to ease up a little to compensate for extra suppleness of muscles and ligaments, to avoid stress on your joints and adjust to your shift in centre of gravity.This book Yoga for Pregnancy is informative & made into an easy to follow yoga class with concise instructions. Each yoga pose also has an image so you can practice with confidence, knowing that you are in correct alignment in each pose.

There is also a another video link in the book showing you how to correctly practice the Spirit Yoga Maternal Sun Salute.This e-Book is part of The Spirit Yoga Health Series, which is a collection of yoga e-Books designed to benefit a particular health concern & made into an easy to follow class.
