Review

As a physician, I am impressed by the methodical approach and in-depth knowledge base reflected in Exercise for Pregnancy and Beyond. As a husband, I can attest to its efficacy during each of my wife's pregnancies and postpartum periods. --A. W. Emch, MD

If you want a safe way to build strength during pregnancy, taught by an authority, this top-notch DVD is the ticket. --Mothering Magazine, Sept-Oct 2009

About the Actor

Elizabeth Jones-Boswell, M. Ed. began her career as a dancer. Following a severe injury she underwent two back surgeries in 1980. Doctors told her she would neither dance again nor be able to endure pregnancy and childbirth. They were wrong. She embraced the exercise system based on the teachings of Joseph H. Pilates as a means to recovery, which gave rise to her own rehabilitative techniques. By combining Pilates' work with her many years of exercise and dance training, she now has a system of exercise that will work on any body. In 1984, Elizabeth founded the Physical Conditioning Centre (Houston, TX). She now resides in Spokane, WA where she sees private clients and conducts teacher-training workshops and lectures. She was granted the distinction of Master Teacher in 2000. She created and appears in the mat work section of the video Jaclyn Smith's Workout for Beauty and Balance.

I am a classically certified pilates instructor and I hunted high and low for a pilates pregnancy DVD which was vetted by medical professionals because so many DVDs out there have pregnant woman doing unadvisable exercises. While the exercises on this DVD are vetted and clearly explained, they are very simple and slow-moving, and none of them resemble any of Joseph Pilates original work. I think it's even a stretch calling it "pilates-based". It is much more yoga-based in my opinion (with cues on strange breathing and meditation portions). You will not break any sweat doing this video. I was looking for a more challenging video that has been vetted by medical professionals. Also, the fact that the video states that its 123 minutes is misleading as multiple sections of the DVD are repeated. If you are looking for something really really low impact or you're so out of shape you have issues with basic movements then maybe invest in this DVD...otherwise, I say pass and spend your $$$ on something else.

This DVD is great for so many reasons: The instruction is clear and easy to follow, the music is not distracting, workouts are can be done in under an hour, and Elizabeth's voice is so calming. I feel reborn when I finish the exercises. I strongly recommend this video if you are looking for a workout that will make you feel strong and empowered both physically and mentally.

My back feels so much better after only one week! This DVD is excellent. The exercises are clearly introduced and then pieced together in a flowing class that ends in relaxation/meditation.

Elizabeth is a Pilates professional. She has taken all the medical guidelines, her Pilates and personal experience and created a great Pilates-based work-out for both pregnancy and postpartum. Elizabeth is a gifted teacher with wonderful attention to detail. She has all the knowledge and experience you would want in an instructor. She has created a safe and effective Pilates-based video.
Elizabeth was my first Pilates teacher and trained me over 30 years ago. I have taught prenatal/postpartum classes for 2 hospitals in Texas so I am familiar with all the medical guidelines and Pilates exercises that she has incorporated in creating this program. While watching (and doing!) the video I felt like I was in a session with her. So even being a Pilates teacher in my 50's I got that wonderful long, lengthened Pilates workout feeling from doing the video. Truly a program for pregnancy and beyond. I highly recommend this video.
