Inner Beauty, Inner Light: Yoga for Pregnant Women


A soft instructional, Inner Beauty, Inner Light exists with the intention of aiding expectant mothers with pregnancy and childbirth through the practice of hatha yoga.

Frederick Leboyer documents Vanita Iyengar, the daughter of yogic master B.K.S. Iyengar, through the final weeks of her pregnancy as she beautifully moves through poses both simple and complex. Photographs are accompanied with text highlighting the importance of breath, and detailing what it means to truly be in and understand each pose rather than simply go through the motions. Poetic and at times humorous, it is at once motivating, thought-provoking, and deeply centering.

Hard cover with black and white photographs throughout.

Edition: 1978.
