Prenatal Yoga for a Healthy Pregnancy
Yoga is the ideal form of exercise during pregnancy – and the Healthy Mom, Happy Baby DVD provides a wonderful way for you to enjoy the benefits of prenatal yoga in the comfort of your own home.
In addition to the obvious benefits to your overall wellness and relaxation, Healthy Mom, Happy Baby’s prenatal yoga strengthens the muscles you’ll use during childbirth. It also provides you with helpful meditation techniques you can use to replenish yourself during contractions, as well as useful breathing and visualization strategies.

The sequence includes:
- Arm strengthening
- Standing series (1 & 2)
- Back bending
- Hip opening
- Final relaxation
