I've seen comments about poor production - I note I am more interested in the actual workout than production. For example, Shiva Rea's DVD, while it is well-produced, drives me mad as it is too easy and slow.
Other DVD's I like are Dr. Christine Anderson's Dynamic Prenatal Yoga DVD (longer, was great for my first pregnancy ... again production not great) and the Perfect Pregnancy Workout (love this one).
You do not have to have prior yoga experience to enjoy these videos. Sara talks you through each movement. The videos focus on yoga postures with breath-coordinated movement (for those who are familiar with yoga, its similar to moderately intense vinyasa yoga style) rather than a yoga approach that jumps from one posture to the next (hatha yoga).
I have three other prenatal yoga & workout videos (Shiva Rea, Erin O'Brien, Tracey Mallett), Sara's is the one I prefer the most.
each time after i doing the reverse postures in the series, i start feeling vomiting - i do not think those reverse postures are good for pregant woman, i think sitting and standing postures might be better.
