A little better each time...

(4 out of 5 stars)
The 45-minute length of the workout is long enough to get in a good, challenging workout without taking all day.
Instructor is pregnant herself and is the lone instructor with a voice over (some workouts have a single non-pregnant instructor, which I think is kind of annoying.)
She goes through modifications you can do and also tells you which poses should and shouldn't be done near the end of your pregnancy based on what position your baby is in.
Some really good stretches and poses I haven't seen in other prenatal workouts (like cobra with a bolster)
Thick accent and flight-attendant like cadence are distracting at first.
All the 'green light of the yoga pulse zones' is pretty cheesy, but easy to ignore
Bottom Line: not my favorite workout, but I like it better each time I do it. Probably not for those who have not practiced yoga before; it's somewhere between a beginner and intermediate level. For similar and slightly more challenging workouts, I like South Beach Yoga and Prenatal Yoga Flow and for slightly easier workouts I like Mimi Solaire, Anna Getty, and Shiva Rea's workouts."
