Gaiam Prenatal Yoga

Stay in shape during your pregnancy with Gaiam Prenatal Yoga.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Shiva Rea is the instructor in this yoga fitness video for women in any stage of their pregnancy. Shiva leads the first trimester workout, while two other instructors lead you in different colors as you progress in your pregnancy.

This video starts with a half-hour of meditation stretches that also incorporate chairs and blocks for added support. After the preliminary stretches, Shiva moves on to 16-minutes of yoga poses, including lunge pose, bridge pose, child's pose, and plank pose, which all are modified to accommodate a woman's growing tummy as her pregnancy progresses. Finally, the video concludes with a four-minute relaxing session.

Gaiam Prenatal Yoga is a great option for pregnant women because it allows them to continue exercising as they advance in their pregnancies. The modifications of each pose make it possible to continue exercising into your third trimester, and even after the birth of your child, if you choose to do so.

PRO
  • Offers options for all trimesters
  • Easy to follow poses
  • Calming music makes it easy to relax with this video
  • A serene and relaxing way to stay in shape while preparing for motherhood
CON
  • Sometimes the poses are not adequately explained
  • May not be challenging enough for those who are already in shape
  • Not all poses last for the same length of time
DIET and NUTRITION

This video does not discuss diet and nutrition. You should discuss any changes in your diet with your doctor while you are pregnant.

EXERCISE

This is a calm and relaxing way for expectant mothers to get in their 30-minutes of exercise, five times a week.

CONCLUSION

If you want to stay in shape throughout your entire pregnancy by practicing yoga, then you should give this video a try. Shiva Rea teaches you a complete yoga routine and then shows you how to modify the routine based on which trimester you are in at the time. Shiva does not always explain each move, so true beginners might have a little trouble with this workout. However, if you are not a true novice, you will probably enjoy this video and reap the benefits of using it on a regular basis.
