NEW YORK, March 15 Expectant mothers and their loved ones can now more closely share in the pregnancy experience thanks to the new Prenatal Yoga for Partners DVD created by HAPPYBABY, the nation's leading premium organic baby and toddler food company. One of the only products of its kind, this wellness DVD features HAPPYBABY CEO and founder Shazi Visram and her husband, Joe Kulak, a certified yoga instructor and physical therapist with more than a decade of experience, sharing a thoughtful yoga flow for expectant parents and practicing exercises to ease the aches and pains of pregnancy for moms-to-be. HAPPYBABY is quickly becoming a premier green lifestyle resource and is committed to the overall health and wellness of their customers and their families.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, practicing yoga during pregnancy can benefit both mother and baby by lessening discomfort and fatigue, providing a sense of well-being, and increasing the likelihood of early post-delivery recovery. Visram had these health benefits in mind as well as a desire to find a way for her husband to be able to be more involved in the pregnancy experience when HAPPYBABY set out to create this DVD.
Designed to promote relaxation, build strength and flexibility, and prepare the body and mind for labor, Prenatal Yoga for Partners features sections for both partners as well as exercises just for moms-to-be. Kulak offers instruction on traditional yoga postures, breathing techniques, massage tips for dads-to-be, and guided relaxation for expectant moms. He also demonstrates quick fixes to common prenatal aches and pains such as lower back and sciatica pain, leg cramps and heartburn, and overall prenatal stress.
"As a very recent first-time mother, I wanted to do everything I could to remain healthy and happy, stay active, and involve my husband, Joe, as much as possible during such a miraculous time in life," says Visram. "Prior to my son's birth, Joe and I bonded by practicing yoga together, which strengthened our partnership, helped him feel much more involved in my pregnancy, and got me mentally and physically prepared for labor and a speedy recovery. It really worked wonders, and I would recommend our DVD to every expecting couple I know."
The HAPPYBABY Prenatal Yoga for Partners DVD will be available in March 2010 for $14.99 on the company's website at www.happybabyfoods.com. This is just the first in a series of family yoga DVDs from HAPPYBABY.
