Movie Reviews

Very Good Postnatal Program
L. Loyd | Ohio, United States | 03/25/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Shiva Rea is, in my opinion, the best yoga instructor out there. Her voice is very relaxing and practicing with her really makes you feel better. I used her Prenatal Yoga workout my whole pregnancy and this is the next step. It is somewhat slower paced, but right after having my son I felt like my abdomen was made of jello and slow paced exercise was as much as I could do! It focuses on recouping your pelvic floor muscles and abdominals and stretching out your shoulders and back. The workout is divided into three parts, to be done one by one as you can or consecutively--the first is very short for dipping back into exercise, the next slightly longer and more involved, and the third focusing on standing poses with the aim of easing back into a yoga practice. There are also 2 modifiers just as there were in her prenatal yoga workout. Overall, it is a good yoga workout focused on regaining your abdominal strength and keeping your back strong and ache-free. The infant massage is also excellent, a nice bonus to a good workout."
This is the real thing.

"I have three kids and have used this program (on VHS, so I never had the DVD problem discussed by other reviewers) in the first six weeks after birth every time. I have tried at least six other tapes/DVDs and found them not as effective. Shiva Rea gives very useful cues in an even, down-to-earth vocal style. I found her program to be very effective in regaining flexibility, muscle tone and alignment. I found my further normal yoga practice to have greatly benefited from my having "started over" using this program."
Good for Postnatal Exercise

"This is not a challenging workout, but if you want to be challenged, congratulations! - you are ready for regular workouts and not ones geared to postnatal women. I used to do power yoga prior to my pregnancy, but stopped exercising almost entirely during my pregnancy. Plus, I had a c-section. So, after months of not really exercising, I find this workout to be nice for my postnatal body. This workout should gradually strengthen my body and then I hope to return to my regular exercise."

"I used Shiva Rea's Prenatal Yoga DVD throughout my pregnancy and was very happy. I just received the Postnatal DVD and watched it today and was disappointed. The workout is very slow and is not challenging. I don't think it will be useful to me.
The best part of the DVD is the bonus Infant Massage segment which I found extremely informative. I would have actually bought the massage video on its own it was so good.
