Prenatal Yoga DVD recommendations?

So the library wants their DVD back, and I'm thinking I should just buy myself a great routine. There are so many though! Anybody got a favorite you'd like to recommend? What makes it great?

I like yogisanonymous.com. It's $15 a month for the subscription, so it might be more than you want to pay, but you get a ton of different workouts to choose from at different levels and lengths. That's all I use, so I can't recommend any DVD's, but I know there are some great ones out there.

Iverna, your recommendations are very good. For my first pregnancy I did follow Shiva Rea myself for a while.

But when I became pregnant for the third time I was still practicing a regular Yoga routine but I wanted something different every week because I felt that my body was changing so fast and my baby's needs.

I'm a pre and Postnatal Teacher, and while I was pregnant I created Yoga4Mothers.com

I've actually been using youtube. I have a hard time spending money on DVDs that I usually end up not using all the time. Also, using youtube I can find different length flows. Last night I did a 10 minute because I was so tired.

Another thing I've found (haven't looked at yoga specifically) is that Amazon (not sure if it's Prime only) has monthly "rentals" inexpensive. I did a bellydance one that I want to rent again.

I was wondering the same thing... Are you just beginning yoga or been practicing for a while? I've been practicing regularly for almost a year and am unsure of how to keep practicing? I feel like a lot of the prenatal yoga and videos are for beginners and am wanting to keep my practice and flexibility at an intermediate level if that makes any sense? Thus far I've been avoiding core strengthening and back bends yoga but I'm just so lost where to go and what to do.

I'm just beginning myself. Have you looked to see if there are any class near you? At an intermediate level (I'm guessing) you know how to do the poses? But need to know what's safe for pregnancy? If that's accurate I'd just take a class or 2 then put together my own program.

I don't do videos every night. On nights I'm too tired I just do a few of the moves & stretches that I remember & leave it at that.
