I did not practice yoga regularly prior to pregnancy -- I had been to 5 or 10 classes in my life. However, by my second trimester everything hurt: feet, back, hamstrings. I picked this up at Buy Buy Baby and found that by just doing the short section at the begining (35 minutes or so) 2 or 3 times a week, all my pains were gone. Although there is a lot of focus on the pregnancy in the DVD, my husband will sometimes do it with me and he reaps benefits.

This best thing about the DVD is s that it's so approachable to do just a half hour in your living room and immediately feel better. I also like it that the pregnant women in the video are not little skinny pregnant women -- they are full and fleshy. The production value is also much better than the other (Australian) yoga video I picked up.

I'm in the 5th week of my 3rd pregnancy. I gained 45 with my first and was in terrible shape. I didn't loose the weight until after my 2nd pregnancy where I only gained 25, but started overweight. I finally lost all the baby weight and then some and now here I am for #3. I am no where near in great shape, but at least my weight is down and I'm working on it. I promised myself I would have a more healthy pregnancy this time. My diet is great, I just needed to find a workout that I would enjoy and that wouldn't take an hour of my time. I purchased 4 pregnancy workouts - 2 pilates and 2 yoga and I love them all. I looked at pretty much every prenatal workout Amazon has to offer (spent a couple days reading reviews) and am super happy with my choices. All 4 make the workout very personal, the music is great, and there isn't any of that super peppy over acting stuff like so many workouts. They are all well trained in their art and have many years of experience behind them.

#1 - Yoga for Pregnancy Labor & Birth with Colette Crawford
I did this today and it really relaxed my body and mind (which I needed as my 3 and 5 year old were running around the house doing crazy things). It's very simple and straightforward and anyone can do it. I feel motivated after doing it and so many pressures are gone. As mentioned in some of the other reviews the girls in it aren't super skinny and that is kind of nice sometimes. She talks a lot about breathing, being in the moment, and just knowing your body. I would recommend this to anyone who just needs some time to learn to relax and do some great stretching to help with aches and pains!

#2 - Pilates During Pregnancy with Niece Pecenka
All I can say is - wow! My legs are out of shape.

I've dabbled in yoga over the past few years, but usually I stick with pilates. Tired of my normal pilates videos I decided to give this a try when I found it on the shelf at Borders.

This DVD is great for relaxing. The poses are very easy and it moves at a great pace. My sciatica problems have been reduced and other aches and pains have gone away.

I have tried several pregnancy yoga videos and this is the best by far! I have been studying Iyengar yoga for several years and have taken a pregnancy yoga class with a well respected instructor. This video is the closest to a traditional Iyengar class. I find that a lot of the other yoga video incorporate a lot of fluff. Collette's voice is very soothing and the instruction is good. I would recommend having some experience in yoga first - some of the moves such as Warrier 2 need more instruction as I don't think she approaches these from a beginner's perspective. There is a good combination of breathing, stretching & more challenging moves and they cool down at then (legs up the wall) really helps with swelling.

This DVD was useful while I was pregnant. The positions were good and she did a good job of explaining how to get into them and I enjoyed the meditation at the end. What keeps me from giving it a great review is one phrase that she kept repeating that was a bit distracting and by the third or fourth time, was making me laugh: She kept saying, "This can help the baby get into the right position, whatever that means."

"Whatever that means"? It sounded like she was avoiding being judgmental toward a baby being "bad" for getting in the "wrong" position or something like that. Since there IS such a thing as an ideal position for birth (head down, occiput anterior, etc.), and yoga positioning is really good at getting babies there, the "whatever that means" seemed really funny. Of course a well-positioned baby isn't a better person than a mal-positioned one, but it will come out a heck of a lot more easily, and isn't that part of what we're doing the yoga for?

Overall, I enjoyed using the DVD and it was a good purchase, but that element was bothersome to me. Likely it wouldn't be to most women.

I like this video to an extent. I read other reviews that said it was too easy, but I thought it would be perfect for me since I tend to be kind of lazy and like the stretching parts of yoga best anyway. However, it IS a little too easy, even for me. It's mostly floor work with one standing inverted pose, one or two downward dogs, and one set of warrior poses. It's very relaxing but I prefer yoga that makes me concentrate and work a little harder. I find that I'm more focused and relaxed at the end of my practice if I've challenged myself a little bit. I'm only at week 20, so I may appreciate this video more once I'm further along, but right now I think it's just too easy. There are also several poses that require you to be up against a wall, which doesn't work that well for me because I don't really have any wall space in my living room that doesn't have furniture on it. However, if you're looking for a relaxing meditative yoga this video might just be perfect for you.

Update: I am now in my eighth month of pregnancy and this video is more the right pace at this stage. Its neither too easy nor too hard.
