<p>Ok so I am looking for a good yoga dvd to use while pregnant.  I really want to take some classes but I am not sure how possible that will be with money kinda tight and my work schedule.  So I'd love to know what dvd's you all like!  </p>
<p>I have done yoga before but it's been a really long time.  So something that really shows the poses in detail and then does a workout sequence I think would be good.</p>

<p>Ooo, thanks!  I will have to check it out <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>eta:  So it looks great except it only comes in a vhs format <img alt="greensad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/greensad.gif">  I don't own a vhs player anymore.</p>

<p>I absolutely cannot rave enough about the Divine Mother Prenatal Yoga series with Anne Getty.  I have loaned this one out to preggo friends and everyone has loved it. (Speaking of, how can I get that dvd back without letting slip that I'm pregnant).  Don't let the cover turn you off, because the yoga routine itself is great.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Once I started doing this my headaches went away.  It also helped with leg cramps and backaches and all the wondrous other preggo pains.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got it at amazon (5 stars), but I don't think they still sell it.  Maybe you'll be able to find it somewhere else.  It looks like some Amazon sellers still have it.</p>

<p>hi there!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had a yoga dvd called Prenatal Yoga by Shiva Rea.  I think that's the one!  I loaned it to my SIL and haven't gotten it back because she doesn't know I'm preggo again!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, in addition to the dvd (actually, more often than the dvd) I used the Prenatal Yoga Deck (Olivia ******, pink & purple box) which is a deck of cards with different poses on each one.  I would go through and pick out the ones that would address my "complaints" and do those in the evenings before bed.  Very relaxing.  Also, I had a great book - well, kinda goofy old pictures, but good how-tos on the poses and references for which ones to do in which trimesters... it was called Yoga for Pregnancy by Sandra Jordan.  I used the deck and the book more often than the DVD, I guess because it was easier for me to squeeze in whenever, and because I could so easily tailor it to what I needed.</p>

<p>I second the Crunch DVD from Amazon with Sue Elkind. She teaches in the Anusara style - which is what I practice and teach in as well. It's a very safe, alignment based yoga that emphasizes life-affirming themes throughout. She's well known in our yoga community as an amazing prenatal teacher and literally wrote the book on Anusara prenatal yoga. I just ordered the DVD myself - can't wait to try it!</p>

<p>If you need the basics I really like "Basic Yoga Workout for Dummies" <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FBasic-Yoga-Workout-Dummies-Ivanhoe%2Fdp%2FB00005LQ08" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Basic-Yoga-Workout-Dummies-Ivanhoe/dp/B00005LQ08</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>She really breaks it down.</p>

<p>Thanks for letting us know it's on netflix, I am about to start it now.  I had the Shiva Rea DVD for the first three pgs, but never really liked it.  I am not sure why... Probably my own lack of motivation.  Looking forward being able to stream this one.<br>

<p>Thanks everybody!   I saw the Divine Mother one on amazon a while back, when you first posted it. <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%2Fref%3Dnb_sb_noss%3Furl%3Dsearch-alias%253Ddvd%26field-keywords%3Dprenatal%2Byoga%2Bdivine%2Bmother%26x%3D13%26y%3D20" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">Here it is</a>.  Good reviews, looked good.  I also liked his one, from the reviews.  <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FElement-Prenatal-Postnatal-Elena-Brower%2Fdp%2FB002EWD0BS%2Fref%3Dsr_1_2%3Fs%3Ddvd%26ie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1291137753%26sr%3D1-2" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">Element </a> And I liked that it had a pre- and postnatal workout.  So I am not sure which one I will get.  maybe I will get both, lol!  Shiva rea, I will have to look at that one.  And thanks for the crunch mama dvd link!!  Now I have too many choices :) hehe. </p>

Thanks for the netflix tip too, that' s perfect!<br><br>
Last time I was bored with the shiva rea DVD until the third trimester when it was perfect and then I loved it. I tried a bunch of others from the library and never really liked any of them.

<p>Have you checked out  <a href="http://www.myyogaonline.com" target="_blank">http://www.myyogaonline.com</a>  ?  I'm a member (it's $9.95/month i think??) and I like it b'c there's a big variety of videos, all levels, styles, lengths, teachers, etc.  I just did a search on the page and found a few prenatal videos, but, I'm totally ddc crashing so I haven't done the classes!  I just saw your post in the main "new threads" and thought to mention it.  They also have a nicely organized "poses/asanas" section that shows and explains the poses.  And videos about nutrition, salts, and some other yogic living info.</p>

DDCC The only one I ended up liking and working in the 3rd trimester was Element Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga. It was a good dvd. Honestly I'm fairly sure it's what got my baby to turn from transverse, too!
