Perfect for you and your growing baby!
on 26 January 2010
I'm 13 weeks and think this is a wonderful prenatal dvd. A lot of the Gaiam products are very well filmed and they take pride in the location / setting of their practices.
This one in particular is set in a very lovely studio and it has three variations for you to refer to during your pregnancy; Shiva Rea is in her first trimester, there's Beatrix in her second trimester showing you variations in the postures using a block, a strap and a blanket and then there's Poppy who's in her final trimester showing variation in the postures by using support from a chair, a block or blanket. This is a yoga dvd you could use throughout your pregnancy.
Shiva Rea mentions that if you are new to yoga that you start off doing just 15 minutes of this yoga dvd as often as you can to build your strength but to make sure you always finish with the relaxtion at the end of the practice. It is gentle enough to do if you have never done yoga as it shows you variations should you not be able to move into the posture easily.
It's a practice geared towards building strength and flexibility to help us in one of our most physically challenging moments of our lives.
I would definitely recommend this DVD to all mommy's to be... Enjoy!
