After reading this list I was even more excited about receiving the DVD. When it arrived I watched it one time all the way through (without actually participating) just so that I would know what to expect and what would be expected of me and to familiarize myself with what all was on the DVD.
I liked that in addition to the complete workout there were menu options that provide you with poses and postures for specific purposes, like relaxation or labor and delivery and there was even a section which included specific postures and self acupressure techniques for common pregnancy issues and discomforts.
Today I gave the 1-hour workout a try, reminding myself that the women on the video have been doing yoga for years and it was okay if I was not able to do the entire workout. I feel pretty good about what I was able to do and I feel pretty confident that I will be able to do more and more as I continue to work out with the DVD. I found it to be very relaxing, with soothing music and sounds playing in the background, and the instructor Jess Elizabeth speaking in a calming voice throughout the entire workout. I like the way she talks you through each pose & posture and the transitions between them so that you don’t have to continually keep looking up at the screen to make sure you are doing things correctly. Unlike going to a yoga class, I can use the DVD whenever it is convenient for me and in the comfort of my own home, without feeling like anyone is watching me or that there is pressure for me to do more than I am comfortable doing. If I had purchased this DVD it would have been a whole lot less expensive than taking a class too.
