Jennifer Wolfe's Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga DVD review and Giveaway!

|



I am a firm advocate of yoga before, during and after pregnancy. It helped me get back into shape with my first daughter as well as fix some back issues I was having due to breastfeeding. The styles of yoga which were most beneficial for me were Vinyasa flow and Ashtanga.

The problem for me however, is that most pregnancy workout or yoga DVDs were too...dull or slow paced for my liking. I wasn't able to find a prenatal yoga/workout DVD which gave me a satisfactory workout until I found Jennifer Wolfe's Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga DVD. I had read rave reviews on Amazon.com and am pleased to say this DVD set lived up to the reviews.

By integrating this yoga practice into my week, I continued to strengthen my body, arms and legs throughout my pregnancy. Overall I felt much stronger, flexible and more relaxed then I had with any other form of exercise. I also found that it made a difference during my labor and during post-partum recovery. It was easier to bounce back, compared to the first time around.

Yoga has been known to:

*Increase Your Energy During Pregnancy
*Alleviate Lower Back Pain
*Prepare your Body for Labor and Delivery
*Connect with your Baby
*Decrease Anxiety and Stress
*Be Fit and Active During and After Pregnancy
*Speed up Postpartum Recovery


This DVD is very well done and never cheesy unlike some others which I have tried. Jennifer has a very calming voice and teaching style which makes you feel comfortable throughout the classes.

Some reviews:


ShapeYou.com 2007 Gear Awards
Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga "Top Gear of the Year Award"

NEW YORK TIMES

"makes you feel good, even with a big belly,"
"My arms and legs got a workout, and I felt stretched, connected and relaxed."

This Dr. Mommy used this practice for 2 pregnancies DB (San Carlos, CA)
As an MD, I'm often skeptical of the promises a lot of yoga dvds make. Jennifer Wolfe's vinyasa practice exceeds all expectations.

I used this vinyasa practice throughout both of my pregnancies. I became stronger as each pregnancy progressed, so that I was able to achieve my goal of natural childbirth with energy left over.

You will work hard, sweat a lot, and be as prepared for childbirth as you can possibly be. I can't recommend this dvd highly enough!!!

This would be perfect! Last time I went to a yoga class I took my infant and my 6yo and it was a disaster. To be able to do it in my home...it would really make a difference for me!

Wow! I love this chance to win, well some help to better health and happiness. I've tried yoga few years ago. LOVE IT! but I'm still a beginner practitioner. I'd love to help my very bad back this way, specially in pregnancy :)

I dabbled with yoga after a neck injury 9 years ago. Recently, I rededicated myself and started taking classes. As we're not trying for our first, I know I want to keep up the practice, but also know I won't be able to keep up the pace of the current class I take. I would love this program to keep up my practice at home throughout my pregnancy.

Wow, this would be AMAZING!! My pelvis separates too far during pregnancy, so most forms of exercise, such as walking, jogging, bike riding, are out of the question. I've only ever heard good things about yoga while pregnant!
