I really started doing yoga while I was pregnant with Xavier. I had tried it a couple times before and did not find much interest in it. However, when I was pregnant it was great for stretching my muscles and relaxing. It teaches a lot of great poses and stretches to relieve back pain, neck pain, leg pain and all sorts of stress. Yoga can be difficult if you have never tried it depending on the type that you do. It can also be very easy. Lucky for me when I tried Prenatal Yoga it was easy for me and helped tremendously during labor. I still do yoga now.
I was more than happy to try out Julie Schoen's Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Workout which is 60 minutes for all Trimesters. It also includes meditation and restorative poses. I always recommend meditation for people whether you are pregnant, a man or woman it is amazing how much stress free your life is by adding a few things into your day.
Julie Schoen is a certified pre-natal yoga instructor in her Vinyasa Yoga Workout DVD you have a 60 minute work out suitable for all trimesters. This is one routine that I thought really worked well for opening your pelvis and to help relieve back pain associated with pregnancy.
I really did not like this yoga work out prenatal video. First of all I did not like the narrative in it. It is too much talking and not enough quiet or relaxing time. If I was fully pregnant while trying to do it I think I would have thrown something at the television. I would have to mute it.
It also requires/recommends a lot of props, blocks, blankets, pillows, and mats. I thought that was a little ridiculous for one 60 minute routine. Many of the poses I thought were hard for beginners or very pregnant woman. It was not just an easy routine.
I would recommend you already practice yoga before doing this as a prenatal yoga work out. This is definitely not for beginners. Lastly, I thought this DVD was lacking with only the one 60 minute routine and the high price of $17.99 for a work out DVD. Next Generation Stay At Home Mom gives Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga DVD 2 Stars!
If you would like to purchase a copy of your own Julie Schoen Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Workout DVD you can for $17.99 through Amazon.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
