This book combines the author's 20 years experience teaching and researching Yoga with the insights gained during her own three pregnancies, giving practical and simple instructions to present Yoga, without cultural, religious or moral bias. The book is divided into three sections, each covering a three month period of pregnancy with suitable exercises and advice on the requirements of each. Additional information about the biological aspects of each particular stage of pregnancy is given together with the relevant trimester. Nutritional requirements, diet and common complaints and a summary of the Do's and Don'ts for the practice, detailed information on hormonal changes during pregnancy, useful addresses and a glossary of the Sanskrit and medical terms are also included. Based on her own pregnancies and on experiences shared with her by her students, who practised Yoga during their pregnancy, Zaira has selected exercises that will offer a safe and suitable support through this unique time, by toning the body systems and developing physical and mental flexibility, as well as emotional control. By sharing this knowledge, Zaira hopes that each woman who reads this book will benefit from Yoga techniques, gaining more control over their own pregnancy, feeling empowered to influence the birth experience, and to achieve a positive inner sense of reward .
