"Both workouts are super-helpful and easy to follow, no special equipment needed besides a towel. The post-natal workout is especially helpful to get ideas of how to relate with an infant, and my daughter really seemed to enjoy it then. She's now over a year old and still enjoys it when I help her do some of the "baby yoga" moves. I have to admit that I skipped the singing part and just did deep breaths then, but it still relaxed my mind and body and tightened my muscles--combining this with nursing helped me regain my shape, too."
Ok Workout but too much Spiritual Mumbo-Jumbo!!

"If you are a very spiritual or new age yoga person you might love this. I am just a modern mommy looking for a yoga workout. The instructors endless banter about being in touch with my primal nature was annoying. Telling me to visualize squatting a in a forest and birthing surrounded by only birds and animals is a terrifying image not a relaxing one. The chanting was bizzare and the tribal dancing downright scary. I was hoping for just some great yoga poses with instruction but I got a video drowning in over the top touchy-feely spiritual junk."
I love it!!!

"I love this video. I am expecting my 4th baby and have used this video for the last 3 pregnancies. I started this yoga during my 2nd pregnancy to avoid the back pain I had during my first. Not only did the exercises keep me pain free, but a few weeks into it I found myself getting tone and finding muscles showing all down my back! The instructor is kind of out there, but very calming at the same time. I love how there is plenty of stretching too. She talks you through the exercises explaining how they will help in your pregnancy and during childbirth and so you hardly realize you are "exercising", until a few weeks later you notice how tone you are getting. FYI - I always skip the meditation and the freestyle dancing - I'm not that alternative! I just enjoy the relaxing exercises, so if you are the same, just skip the parts that are too "out there" for you and you will find a great prenatal yoga practice."
Great Prenatal Yoga!!!

"This yoga routine has been perfect for relieving my back tension, neck stiffness, and restless legs, while helping build muscle tone and the knowledge and comfort a woman needs before going into labor. It is not a purely physical "workout" - instead it is focused on both physical and mental development, with some unique meditative approaches to building endurance in preparation for labor. I love it! The instructor, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, is very knowledgeable with a soothing voice. I can't say enough good things about this routine! There is also a more recent DVD out, also by Gurmukh that is just as great (Prenatal Kundalini Yoga and meditation for mothers to be). I recommend them both! Happy Yoga!"
I can't recomend this enough

"This is not really a 'work out' it defentaly does get your pules up some but it is more about getting in touch with your inner self and that primal part of you that comes out when birthing a baby. The positive birth talk throughout the video is wonderful and positions used are excellent for preparing for a natural birth. This is not the sort of birth preperation you want if you are planing a standered hospital birth. For anyone wanting a healthy natural birth I would strongly suggest looking into this video!"
