About the Author :

Sri Ananda is the founder-head of the 'Centre Indien de Yoga' in Paris, where the teaches traditional Yoga and meditation. His research into Hatha-Yoga was carried out under the guidance of Swami Kuvalyananda, of Kaivalyadhama, Lonavla, India. He has also studied Ayurveda, in particular the Samhitas of Charaka, Sushruta and Vagbhata. In this book, he makes a special reference to these texts which deals with conception, embryology, hygiene, and balanced diet.

Anjali Devi was initiated to Hatha-Yoga by B. Krishnayya, from the Kaivalyadhama. While studying child nursing and working in the delivery theatre at the maternity hospital headed by her father, himself a surgeon and gynaecologist, she realized the usefulness of Yoga for mothers during pregnancy. Encouraged by her father, she developed a Yoga course for mothers-to-be. A large part of the book is devoted to a detailed description of the Yoga course for pregnant women, designed as a result of her long years of experience in this field.
