Hi, Maya here,
After I found out that yoga during pregnancy was not a big problem I did have trouble getting to my yoga classes so I decided to get a prenatal yoga DVD.
And of course I couldn’t decide and bought 3 prenatal yoga DVDs I thought I’d let you know what I think about them.
- Prenatal Yoga with Shiva Rea
- Summer Sanders’ Prenatal Workout with Summer Sanders&Keri Crockett
- South Beach Prenatal Yoga with Jess Elizabeth
Prenatal Yoga – I bought this DVD early in my pregnancy, and found it too easy. However, at 9 months pregnant, it was the only yoga I could still do . The pace is good, and the adjusted postures are still comfortable. I’d recommend it for those people who are now finding regular yoga practice no longer feasible.
Summer Sanders’ Prenatal Workout Not really a yoga DVD but still. The DVD has 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimester workouts. Each workout is different and each one helps you feel like you’re doing something great for yourself and your baby. Summer Sanders is cheerful and informative, without being cheesy. The video is easy to follow and provides you with an excellent workout for each trimester. I recommend this video to anyone who wants to continue to exercise during pregnancy or even just starting out with a fitness routine in pregnancy. Now I have to say that I didn’t do my exercise in a long time and was still able to do the exercise, though I have to admit, I was so sore after the first few times! LOL My body quickly became used to exercising again and the workouts helped me feel better physically and mentally. I still use this DVD even after my pregnancy just to to stay in shape.
I have done this DVD every day since I got it. I love it! It is classy, hip, modern, visually stunning and a fantastic workout and it helps me sleep at night. There is something for all trimesters of pregnancy and all yoga skill levels. And not to mention it saves me money on prenatal yoga classes.
All 3 DVDs show women in different trimesters doing the exercises and mention appropriate modifications. All three videos explain how to do the exercises safely and how to recognize warning signs of overdoing it.
If you’re a yoga gal like me and you want to buy just one prenatal yoga DVD, get South Beach Prenatal Yoga there are all kinds of fun features, including breathing and delivery techniques. I highly recommend this for any mom-to-be.
