You've just had a baby, and now you have two new goals: getting back in shape and enjoying close bonding with your new arrival. How can you find the time to do both? 'Baby Om' is a dynamic, easy-to-follow, fun yoga programme specially designed for new mothers and their babies. Laura Staton and Sarah Perron - both dancers, yoga instructors and mothers themselves - take mothers through a yoga practice that they can do with their infants.

Their beautifully illustrated book includes * all the practical information you need to get started * guidelines on how to get your baby engaged, relaxed and comfortable with this new form of play * step-by-step 'Baby Om' classes, each concentrating on a unique stage in your child's development * a special class addressing the unique needs of post caesarean mothers * poses for nursing and for soothing colic * a chapter on the benefits of yoga for postpartum depression. Safe, effective, and easy to learn, 'Baby Om' brings mother and baby together, ensuring the health and happiness of both.
