Yoga for Pregnancy for iOS

By Anna White $2.99

Developer's Description

This Pregnancy App has been created for ladies who have never practised yoga before they were pregnant as well as for ladies who are experienced yogis. It shows postures that help keep you active during your pregnancy. It includes breathing techniques to help you relax while you're pregnant and for when you are on your special journey to meet your baby. Using this App means you are taking time for you and time to connect to your baby through your pregnancy. Practising yoga during pregnancy can be highly beneficial for you and your baby. Yoga helps build strength and encourages relaxation. The postures help you adapt to the changes in your body that occur during pregnancy and the breathing and relaxation techniques enable you to relax more easily.The exercises are shown in short sequences and the instructions and demonstrations are easy to follow. The chapters mention adaptations for ladies who suffer from pelvic girdle pain, heartburn and carpel tunnel syndrome where appropriate.It features two relaxations often useful after a long day at work:A short one, which encourages making time to connect to baby.A longer one, which is a complete relaxation using the visualisation of floating on a cloud. Imagining you are floating on a cloud is a wonderful way to you to keep you calm and relaxed.THE SEQUENCES:Warm up: Not only warms the joints and muscles, but can release energy blocks in the body, thereby giving you more energy.Cat posture: This is a fabulous posture to help keep your spine supple as well easing those backaches some of you experience. Practising Cat Posture also gives baby the opportunity to be in the correct position for birth and this posture can actually be used to give birth.Standing Sequence: Shows a circular movement to help keep your hips fluid. Incorporates squatting which help strengthen legs and a gentle twist.Flowing Sequence: Is a series of postures, flowing from one to the other. Warrior: An empowering posture for strength.Pregnancy Pelvic Floor:The pelvic floor is an important part of anyones anatomy. However pregnancy places extra weight on the pelvic floor,This chapter not only explains how to practise the exercises, but also gives an unorthodox visual aid to encourage you to do so.Anna White is a qualified British Wheel of yoga teacher who specialises in pregnancy yoga, which she has been teaching for over six years. She teaches five classes each week and many ladies attend her classes. Quite a number of them are now going for their second pregnancy and some are on their third. Lots of them have commented how much they have enjoyed the classes and how useful the breathing techniques have been when they are on their journey to meet their baby, keeping them calm, relaxed and focused during their contractions.It was the ladies from the classes who suggested to her to produce a DVD and from that this App.
