Simple yoga for pregnancy is very easy to follow especially if like me you are a beginner. The exercises can be practised from 14 weeks of pregnancy (I began at 17 weeks and had done no yoga previously). The positions can be practised as a whole or you can choose from the sections you want to focus on. The video is presented in a straightforward and up to date manner. All exercises are demonstrated by women at varying stages of pregnancy. I felt very calm, focused and gently stretched after just one session. I thoroughly recommend it!

When I first did this DVD I was a bit dissappointed because only about half the poses used were "real" yoga and I felt it was too gentle. However, I could feel the next day that my muscles had been working and that my posture was better. It is very slowly paced and the poses are very gentle but it works prefectly for the pregnant body - at least it does for mine. In between each section the "students" comment on the exercises in that section: this initially annoyed me, but now I find that few seconds rest between the sections quite welcome. Each section is registered on the DVD as a "scene" so if you only have half an hour you can do the warm up then skip to whichever section you feel like doing, then skip again to the relaxation at the end. To do the whole thing takes an hour and you do not need anything other than a pillow or cushion to do all the exercices.

I'm 18 weeks pregnant and after suffering from back ache and breathlessness I found this video was fantastic help. The instructions are very easy to follow and the movements are demonstrated by pregnant women. (The last section on relaxation is so effective that I sometimes find myself gently nodding off!)
Highly recommended for anyone who would like to prepare their bodies and minds for labour and birth.

I found this DVD sent me to sleep ( through boredom) ! Its definately a pleasant DVD, very slow paced, very easy for pregnancy, but you feel as if you could do more. Great as a relaxation aid but after a few viewings the tutors are irritating, and the comments from women in the classes just grate on your nerves! Good for when you want a very simple yoga routine mostly for relaxing and easing the general aches and pains of pregnancy, not so good if you are easily annoyed by daft presenters and want to do a little more.

As a practiced yoga-nut I found these stretches way too simple when I first tried them, but that was unfair. They are just right for relieving all the horrible aches and pains of pregnancy, and you can do the whole regime once a day very easily.

I've done yoga at home before and had no qualms about doing yoga in pregnancy myself and saw this on video in a catalogue and ordered it. It was nice to be able to exercise and know that I wasn't doing any harm to little Fubbs or myself and the exercises were do-able but still challenging. I started at 24 weeks pregnant and am still plugging away even though the video is starting to snag in the machine so I will be upgrading to the DVD as soon as possible.
However, as it is the only pregnancy exercise routine I have attemped I can't compare it with pilates, etc. or even other yoga in pregnancy routines but it's worked for me so far.

I didn't use this DVD much in the early to mid stages of pregnancy as I felt it was so gentle that I wasn't really doing/achieving anything.

From around 28 weeks onwards however my opinion really changed. As I started to get bigger and bigger I was finding that when I got out of bed in the morning I was a bit stiff and my hips ached a bit. The gentle stretches and positions really help to ease this to the extent that I'm going it every morning at the moment (32 weeks) and plan to keep on doing it right up to the birth if I can. By starting from the warmup, skipping past the comments from the people in between excercises and not doing the relaxation at the end, I can do the workout in about 30 mins each morning. The relaxation section is nice to do but I don't have time for it every morning. Am going to buy simple post-natal yoga for afterwards as well. Also check out Pilates in Pregnancy by Lindsay Jackson which I've also found useful.

Good simple introduction to gentle yoga positions and relaxation techniques. Quite useful for absolute beginners to yoga. Not worth considering if you have any experience of yoga.
