Practicing yoga with your baby—as you hold your baby, have your baby next to you, or have your baby leaning against your thighs or atop your belly—is a wonderful way to add joy to your first year together. Popular yoga teacher Jyothi Larson shares the specially adapted yoga poses she has taught to hundreds of moms and their "Buddha babies," her term for the happy and calm babies in her classes.
Whether you are new to yoga or an experienced student, whatever shape you are in, you are in the perfect place to practice yoga. In this beautifully illustrated book with easy-to-follow instructions, Larson presents twenty routines that help you get back in shape faster as you bond with your baby. Included are:
• prenatal yoga, with a focus on the last trimester
• what to do after birth through the first six weeks, with special poses for women who have had C-sections
• modified yoga poses that respect your changing post-pregnancy body and give all of yoga's benefits—stretching, strengthening, and relaxing
• fun yoga moves that encourage your baby's natural flexibility and growth
• breathing and relaxation exercises as well as partner postures
and much more!
Experience the joy of yoga while bonding with your baby.
I sent it back because the descriptions required too much step by step stuff and it was cumbersome in that way. It probably would lend itself better to a video. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Sands
I bought this book thinking it would be a good post baby practice with poses I could do with my baby. I find the book is focused on a lot of prenatal yoga. Read morePublished 9 months ago by DLW
Author provides very basic info. Wish that she would have included more anatomy and physiology. Much of the information was redundant.Published on July 15, 2011 by Amber
Skip this book - I expected to learn poses I could do with my daughter - not with her just lying next to me on a blanket. The pictures are boring and in black and white. Read morePublished on January 11, 2011 by AVB
