This prenatal guide is easy to follow yet complete in its simplicity. The tenets of peace and simplicity are essential to a quieting yoga practice and this book models this beautifully. Having taught prenatal yoga for many years, I will highly recommend this to students to use at home to further onsite prenatal classes. Sharon is a thoughtful and passionate teacher and without a doubt she believes strongly in using yoga for a healthy and happy birth experience. Her truth is evident.Joanne V.
