Exercises for the relief of discomfort and for an easy birth

Yoga is a beneficial exercise method for pregnant women that strengthens, relaxes, and gently prepares the body for birth. This comprehensive manual presents seventy tried and tested asanas that are particularly suitable for this purpose, and also offers birth-preparatory breathing exercises, couple exercises, and classical Indian mudras.

Using many photos taken by the author during her own pregnancy, the individual asanas and their variations for the respective trimester are presented. At the same time, their respective positive effects, anatomical details as well as warning signs and possible assistance are explained.
In addition, this book offers special exercise sequences for each trimester and strategies against the most common pregnancy complaints. The program is complemented by effective postpartum yoga and exercises with the baby for the first year after birth.
