Mark Blanchard's Progressive Power Yoga: Prenatal Pregnancy Routines DVD
Many pregnant women email me and ask if they can do my yoga DVDs while they are pregnant, and if so, for how long ...
The phenomenal advantages of practicing yoga during pregnancy are well-documented. Its many benefits help pregnant women maintain optimal health, minimize complications, create calmness, foster deep mental preparedness for birth, and provide quick post-natal recoveries.
I created Progressive Power Yoga for Pregnancy with one woman in each trimester, including my wife Elizabeth in her second trimester and her OB Gynaecologist, Joie Russo, who was in her third trimester while taping this series. The woman shown in her first trimester is doing yoga for the first time!
