The prenatal workout here is perfect for a pregnant woman. The yoga is moderately paced, not as slow as the Crunch Yoga Mama DVD, for example. The instructor, Heather Seiniger, has a soothing manner and keeps the class moving along nicely. There is a good, logical flow between the postures.

The sequencing is approximately as follows:
10 minutes of warm-ups: side stretch, gentle twist, cat/cow, plank, downward dog, child's pose
Squats and prenatal sun salutes
Tree pose
Standing poses: warrior II, extended side angle
More squats
Side stretch, gentle twist and savasana (final relaxation)

All the squatting is supposed to be great for the birth muscles and also your lower back. I always feel calm and refreshed after I do this DVD.

I have done yoga on and off for 2 years, using DVDs and going to a studio. I feel like I have moderate knowledge of the practice and experience with many poses. I was looking for a moderate yoga DVD (not too difficult, not too easy) to start in my second trimester.

I bought two DVDs for prenatal yoga, Yoga Pregnancy and Elements Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga. I'll review both as a comparison.

1. Yoga Pregnancy - I enjoyed this DVD as a reintroduction to the practice and it was easy enough that any novice can follow along. I appreciated that there was no voiceover (they can be annoying) and Heather was giving direction in the studio. I love that there was a model for each trimester so I could follow exactly with the modifications I needed. The 30-minute practice was the perfect length of time and I appreciated that she touched on Kegel exercises, although they are harder to do while in a squat. It was a little slower paced and only touched on some yoga poses that build strength, which made the DVD lacking for my needs. Because this DVD focuses mostly on stretching, I would enjoy it on days that I'm lacking energy (or motivation) or perhaps later on in my third trimester.

2. Elements Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga - I enjoyed this DVD much more that Yoga Pregnancy. It was moderately paced, a perfect 30 minutes in length, and was more of an actual yoga practice that I am used to. Elena looked to be toward the end of her second trimester (maybe beginning third!) and the modifications for yoga poses felt perfect for my body. There was a voiceover for guidance, but it wasn't annoying like previous ones I have encountered. I appreciated that there were enough poses to build strength and they flowed well together. The practice ended with enough stretching for the time allowed. I would have liked to see a model for each trimester, but I managed without it.

I thought this video was the best purchase I made out of three. The workout was easy to follow and very relaxing. The leg exercises not only helped while doing the video, but I used them later while laying in bed to ward off leg cramps and haven't had a single one since using them. I have not quite delivered yet, but am still able to do the workout in my 8th month. I am looking forward to trying out the postnatal workout to get back in shape and using some of the techniques during childbirth. I would highly recomend this one.

Good yoga stretches. The prenatal workout could be a little longer, but its sufficient and great for a basic daily routine. Probably need additional DVDs to add variety to your workout.

This is the second yoga DVD I've ever used, and I like it a lot. The stretches are gentle and easy to follow, and I appreciate that there's always one person who shows the gentler version of each stretch for third trimester or immediately postnatal women. This is not for people looking to sweat. But you do feel more awake and balanced by the end.

My only quibble, which I found with the other DVD I've used, too, is that I'd like the instructor to hold some poses a bit longer. But I guess they're trying to keep to the 30-minute thing. My husband suggested playing this on slow motion... hmmm...

I enjoyed this during my pregnancy, but what I really appreciate is the postnatal part. Sadly, my pregnancy ended early, at 7 months. I want to get back in shape but I was worried it would be hard to find a workout that didn't emphasize -- or even include -- babies. This postnatal yoga sequence focuses on the woman, with only one passing mention of 'pushing a stroller'.

There aren't many resources for women who are post partum with no baby, so I did want to mention it in this review.

I recently purchased this workout to increase the flexibility in my low back. I have had low back surgery and unable to perform in the regular yoga classes. This is a great supplement!

I am 6 months pregnant and this video is perfect for me, I'm normally a gym rat so when I do 'Yoga Pregnancy' I still feel like I'm keeping in shape without having to worry about the safty of my baby. I can't wait to do the post-natal workout after my baby is born.

This is a great work out for growing bellies. The intensity is up to you and it's only half an hour so it's not a large time commitment.
