Why Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga & Who is Jennifer Wolfe?
What is Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga?
Whether you're a yoga veteran in search of an active yoga routine, or you're new to yoga, Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga gives you all the tools to make your pregnancy journey the best it can be. Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga is your support system leading to a more comfortable pregnancy, quicker and less painful labor, and a speedier postpartum recovery.
Jennifer Wolfe developed Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga during her own pregnancy when she realized that all styles of prenatal yoga offered, at the time, could not adequately prepare her physically and mentally for labor. She wanted a yoga practice that specifically served the needs of the pregnant woman: one that actively prepares women for the marathon event of childbirth, while helping women discover their power and inner strength needed during this transformative period in their lives.
Jennifer Wolfe found these empowering and strengthening qualities in the soft flow of Vinyasa Yoga. In her DVDs, she adapts Vinyasa Yoga for the unique needs of pregnant women, providing a system that works with your body without sacrificing the intensity necessary to prepare for childbirth. By learning to link your breath and movements in a constant flow, you'll increase your ability to work with your body during labor and childbirth, reducing the need for medications or other interventions; including a decrease in the need for C-sections.

1. Complete Prenatal Vinyassa Yoga & Short Forms 2 DVD set with Jennifer Wolfe
This was the right DVD for me early in pregnancy (0 to 18 weeks). I love that there are four workouts at varying lengths. This workout is challenging, moving in and out of poses at a good clip. Recommended for those with previous yoga experience. Production quality is mediocre but that does not bother me. The studio where they shot the video must be in an urban location because at moments you can hear the sounds of traffic passing by. If I have learned one thing in yoga, it's that there's an art to ignoring environmental stimuli. Learning to focus inward is a good mental challenge. Jennifer Wolfe is sweet and easy to follow.
2. Element: Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga with Elena Brower
Perfect for me right now, at 20 weeks. Excellent production quality shot in a beautiful, serene landscape. I love that Elena Brower uses voiceover to narrate rather than having the person doing the yoga narrate. She explicitly explains the positions in a lovely, calm voice. I love the style of yoga, moving in and out of poses with breath as opposed to holding poses. I found the workout to be the perfect length, not too long.
3. Gaiam Prenatal Yoga with Shiva Rea
Professional production quality. My local library had a copy so I tried this very early in pregnancy. At that time it seemed too slow for me. For that reason it might be perfect for someone with no yoga background. I have a feeling it might be the right pace for me as I enter into the third trimester, when my belly is so big that I really need to slow down anyway. I will give it another shot in a few weeks.
SUZANNE BOWEN'S SLIM & TONED - This was my favorite of the DVDs I bought. I didn't really feel like it was difficult until around 28 weeks but I think it did a good job keeping me toned and strong. The first section of lower body I usually skipped because it didn't feel like it was doing much but the other sections were great. Suzanne is a good instructor and not overly peppy or irritating. I would suggest skipping the plank portion of the arm/upper body workout after 25 weeks or so if you're worried about diastasis recti (I was). It has been a great postpartum workout and I think it will help me transition back to the harder DVDs I was doing pre pregnancy.
PRENATAL FITNESS FIX - All the reviews are right, the production quality of this DVD is amateur. However, it does kind of give an intimate, non intimidating approach to working out. Sometimes it nice when you're pregnant and feeling a little lumpy in your workout gear to look at another woman who is very pregnant and not looking glamourous. She is also very funny in a goofy way which is good when you're not in the mood to workout. She gets you going even if you are laughing through it. I had trouble with the squat portions when she does them very quickly. It would make my knees sore the next day. Besides that it was a good, quick workout.
JENNIFER WOLFE'S PRENATAL VINYASA YOGA: SHORT FORMS - I HATED this DVD. I wish I wouldn't have bought it. Again, the production quality is bad. Maybe I'm too used to the GAIAM yoga DVDS but this was terrible. The instructor reminded me of a new age librarian and the Shavasana was impossible to do with the grating acoustic guitar. The main reason I bought a yoga DVD was to relax and stretch during pregnancy and this was a mega fail. Also, it heavily features downward dog, which if you're worried about diastasis recti then you won't want to do this DVD.
EXPECTING MORE: SARA HALEY - I wish I would have found this DVD earlier in my pregnancy. I didn't buy it until week 33. It has a plan included to help you make the most of the different sections at different stages of your pregnancy. I didn't get to explore the other sections as much as I would have if I started this earlier. Some routines require more space than I had in my living room to move around and some would be great while your belly is smaller but in later stages of your pregnancy it might not be a great idea. She does do some kinda cheesy things like naming moves after baby things and stressing how sexy she wants you to feel in pregnancy. The cardio was great though and the best you'll find in a prenatal DVD. The hip hop dance was too stupid for me to spend time on but if you like dance maybe you'll like it. Now that I'm postpartum I may try portions of this DVD again.
