The first time I did this DVD, I'll admit to being a little bit bored. I felt like it moved too slowly. I'm glad I gave it another chance because it became the best part of my day towards the end of pregnancy. I experienced sciatica starting in about week 20 and many traditional workout moves progressively became impossible for me. I tried yoga because it's low-impact and know that it can help with aches and pains. In the beginning of the video she says "doing yoga helped me recover very quickly" which was music to my ears; I wanted my body back.
The video itself contains two workouts- a prenatal and a postnatal workout. They are each about 30 minutes in length, give or take for the introduction. The workouts open with floor moves for about ten minutes, standing moves for another ten minutes and close with cool-down stretching (sorry for the lack of yoga jargon) and relaxation. Soon after doing this video a few times during my pregnancy I decided I would get up early to do it every day to keep calm during the day and do a different video in the evening when my sciatica allowed. I'm not the type of person to want to get up even a second early so getting up earlier was a tall order for me.
There are three women showing you the exercises in each video- beginning, intermediate and advanced. You can follow one gal the whole time or switch depending on where you are in your practice or how you feel that day. Heather is encouraging and reminds you that yoga is not a performance sport.
RESULTS, PRENATAL PORTION:
+ It was much easier to get out of bed in the morning
+ I remained calm during my stressful job
+ I remained calm through the demands of having a four year-old and taking her to and from daycare
+ I maintained my flexibility
+ I maintained my muscle tone and lengthened my muscles as well
+ I got a lot of "you only look pregnant in your stomach" and "I can't even tell you're pregnant from behind" comments
+ My blood pressure stayed low
+ I felt less physical tension
+ My balance was good al the way through the end of my pregnancy
+ In labor they marveled at my flexibility, called me "Gumby" (in an encouraging way) and commented on how calm I was
+ Pushing the baby out was very quick as I had built up the appropriate muscles for labor
+ Within ten days postpartum I was back down to three pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight. My body didn't look the same but it bounced back much more quickly than last time. Strangers commented "you don't even look like you've had a baby."
RESULTS, POSTPARTUM PORTION:
+ I can remain more calm juggling a 7 week-old and a now 5 year-old
+ I am becoming even more flexible
+ My body is firming up to where it was before
+ I have an excuse to take some "me" time in the midst of my hectic lifestyle
+ I feel better equipped to handle my daily demands
I use the postpartum video every other day as "rest" days in between more intense and high-energy exercises and whenever I need to calm down and focus.
Highly recommended. Even if you rotate and supplement with other videos, this video will pay itself off quickly.
