This is an excellent prentatal yoga practice. The instructions are clear and there are two or three variants given for most poses. It is accessible for beginners but also good for those more experiences with yoga. I've been doing yoga for 3+ years and mostly do the 30-minute practice, sometimes adding on the 15-minute practice too. There are two poses (camel and table) that aren't comfortable for me so I skip them or do the most basic version. I am not very comfortable with them even when not pregnant though. The video, cueing, music, etc. is very well-done.
Postnatal note: After five weeks of nursing and carrying around a new baby, my shoulders, neck and lower back felt like they'd never be the same again. I had forgotten this video has a postnatal segment, but popped it in thinking that the prenatal routine might be helpful. The postnatal routine is short and has too much yakking at the start of it, but the stretches really hit the spot. There is a little ab work also. Very good video - I am recommending it even more highly now.
