Water is a medium especially suited to pregnant women, and wonderfully soothing to those who have just given birth. This book starts with exercises and techniques designed to open the pelvis, develop breathing, ease aches and pains and develop positive energy. Postnatal exercises help to close up the pelvis, tone the body and strengthen muscles.
