Live too far away from your nearest pregnancy yoga class?
Have other children which makes it hard for you to find a good time to attend a class?
Want to practice what you learn at class during the week?
Travel for work and find it hard to commit to a regular class?
Have a pregnant friend with whom you would like to share the benefits of pregnancy yoga?
Then this DVD is for you!
Produced by Mother Nurture Yoga, Sydney's leading Pregnancy Yoga School, and featured in Practical Parenting magazine, the DVD guides you through a series of safe, simple yoga poses, breathing and meditation techniques that will enable you to have a joyful pregnancy and an empowering birth experience. Suitable from 12 weeks of pregnancy and for all levels of experience.
A comprehensive introduction explains the benefits of pregnancy yoga and how to get the most out of your practice in preparation for labour, birth and motherhood. The rest of the hour-long DVD is broken down into different sections so you can either do the whole class or just a section of it depending on how much time and energy you have:
Relaxation/meditation focusing on your breath
10 minute 'warm up' routine
30 minute full routine
Once you have had your baby, it is often hard to find time to get to a class, so let the class come to you! Postnatal yoga helps you to nurture and strengthen your body after birth. The 30 minute postnatal yoga routine can be done while your baby naps or plays next to you. It is perfect for toning up and rebuilding your core strength, as well as releasing tension from your neck and shoulders, and relaxing your body and mind.
Here's what people who have bought the DVD are saying:
"I loved being able to practice yoga at home throughout my pregnancy. I practiced the breathing meditation in the evening after work which helped to restore my energy after a busy day."
"I gave normal, natural birth birth to my baby girl in just 3 hours of active labour. I focused on the long breathing and poses I learnt from the DVD. It all went so smoothly because of what I learnt on the DVD. Thanks for everything!"
"Like many women I have suffered painful sciatica during my pregnancy so being able to use the DVD during the week between classes has been a lifesaver, both physically and mentally. The pain has eased significantly because of the poses and stretches I've learnt. I would recommend it to all pregnant ladies!"
