uninspring and dull
on 11 August 2009
I was practicing yoga before pregnancy so I got several prenatal yoga dvds to help me continue the practice after I became pregnancy. Unfortunately I found this one the dullest and uninspiring. As some of the previous reviews have also mentioned, the voice in this dvd leading you through the practice is so flat and almost robotic that almost seemed she was also bored or something! The practice itself is ok - calm and not very challenging. But along the practice there isn't much explanation on the benefits or purpose of certain postures, either. So I felt like basically I'm just following a dull and flat voice through different postures. And because of the overall 'cold' atmosphere throughout, I don't particularly enjoy the practice, either. If you're thinking about getting one or a couple of pregnancy dvds, I'd suggest you skip this one and go for either Shiva Rea's or Tara Lee's -both are great and actually complement each other (to me at least), plus both are doing a great job making you more aware of your practice with a baby inside and of the benefits of certain postures that could be useful in labour.
