#1 - Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga with Elena Brower
This is a great workout! This is my first time doing yoga, though I've done some of the moves in my regular non-pregnancy pilates workouts, and I'm loving it. It has really loosened up my stiffness and made my hips and lower back feel so much better. I thought I was going to die during my 2nd pregnancy because of all my aches and pains. I talked with many of my friends about yoga and what I should look for. They told me about how I should feel it, but not overstretch, to know what my bodies limits are. The breathing really helps. This one also has a postnatal workout I am looking forward to!
#2 - 10 minute Solution Prenatal Pilates with Lizbeth Garcia
This really energized me. It uses weights along with great moves and my heart rate was up and going.Read more ›
I also bought the crunch yoga mama video, but haven't tried it out yet.
1. Quick session (about half an hour)
2. Instructor is pleasant, not long-winded
3. Has a few poses (like pigeon) which are extremely beneficial to pregnant women.
4. The scenery behind the woman practicing looks lovely! I wish I could sit there with a cup of hot tea! (Irrelevant, but still)
1. Feels a little hurried - don't have enough time to hold all poses for as long as I would like.
2. Does not end with shavasana (lying down on the floor) - which I really enjoy at the end of a yoga sequence.
3. I felt more short of breath than relaxed through some sequences and I am no yoga newbie.
If I had tried this video out before I bought it, chances are I would have skipped buying it altogether.
It's a good video, but not something I personally find appealing to me.
I love Desi Bartlett's Prenatal Yoga and Yoga Mama by Crunch.
However, the money is spent and I am going to hold on to it for a day when I feel terribly energetic and for the post-natal workout.
I recommend this video to anyone who is new or old to yoga for sure! :)
