Prenatal Modified Flow

Intermediate I

This prenatal yoga class is for women in their second and third trimesters. Fiji was six months pregnant when she filmed this class. Her guidance is gentle and full of inspiration as she teaches you how to modify a yoga flow to accommodate the many changes you, too, are experiencing in your body as your baby grows.

I really can’t say enough good things about this - if you’re considering giving it a try, do it! It’s a wonderful balance of challenge and release. I did it basically every week from 20 weeks - 36 weeks (before I finally had to accept that forward folds were not comfortable anymore!) and it really helped with any back pain or tightness around the hips. I’m not very experienced with yoga, I really only began during my pregnancy, but I found this class was very doable with Fiji’s clear instructions.The poses themselves aren’t intricate but they do require a baseline of some strength. Thank you for a wonderful practice Fiji 🙏

Dear Fiji. Thank you so much for this lesson. I've been feeling so disconnected and sad in the last weeks. It was so hard for me to feel gratitude and appreciation despite everything and everyone around me is being beautiful and loving. When I was in the last pose, opening and connecting, I felt I could create a safe space. In my body and for my baby. Giving it all the positive feelings and love and appreciation it deserves. It touched me so deeply because I've been searching for this feeling so desperately. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

What a lovely class. Thank you so much Fiji. I'm in my first trimester and my energy levels are low, but this class was absolutely perfect!

I absolutely love this class. It is such a perfect flow for pregnancy, and beyond!
I'm a bit over halfway through my second trimester and my only issue is that I wish there were MORE prenatal classes to choose from! I find myself drawn to do them several times a week but have quickly started repeating classes. I always loves Fiji's classes though, so I'll gladly repeat.

Such a lovely class. I especially appreciated the balance poses which many prenatal classes skip over. Also, the gentle reminders about connecting with my baby are always welcome. Thank you.

I'm 30 weeks pregnant and this class worked great for me. I attend a regular (non prenatal) yoga class a couple times a week and just modify the poses. I did this on vacation and it was nice, though I do agree that people who have never done yoga might have a hard time getting through the entire workout. I don't think it's that they would need to modify the poses themselves; it's more about having the endurance if you haven't been exercising much.

Is there a reason people in the first trimester should not do this class?

Great yoga video. I let my practice slide over the last year - and now being pregnant want to make yoga apart of my daily routine again. I found this to be the perfect video to enable me to get back into / improve my yoga practice and all the benefits it will give my body and my my growing babies development. NAMASTE x

I keep trying to do this whole yoga sequence but haven't achieved it yet. I've worked my way up to doing 32 minutes and I really broke a sweat. I felt great after I did it. It gave me a ton of energy. I can't wait until I'm able to do the whole thing.

As a yoga teacher myself I loved this flow but I think you have classified it incorrectly. This is definitely not a flow for pregnant beginners to try!

This was a great class. A little more challenging than other prenatal classes I've done. And I love that there is so much emphasis on connecting with the little life inside you. I will definitely be doing this one again.

Lovely class, however , I would suggest this class be reconsidered as a moderate to advanced class.

I'm on my second pregnancy, have been doing yoga for 15 years, but I still found myself modifying.

I really enjoyed the challenge of it in many moments. Namaste

I'm early in my second trimester & this was exactly what I needed. Thank-you for the mindful connection & challenging flow.

I really enjoyed this class. I'm 24 weeks pregnant and have practiced yoga on a fairly regular basis for the past few years. I was very sick during the first trimester (so no yoga), and I found this to be at a good level for my reduced strength and energy - not overwhelming, but still a good workout. I really appreciate you making this class available!!!

I love your teaching style and flow, Fiji! This is a beautiful practice. I do have a question, however, about the "modified" upward dog, cow pose, and other back bends. Other prenatal classes + trainings I've taken have always stressed NOT doing these type of spine flexions because of the extra weight in the belly and how it can pull/torque the low back, instead keeping a neutral spine, for example, from cat to table, rather than through to cow. I'd love to hear your thoughts on why you think these deep back openers are okay and safe. Thank you!

I love this video. I'm 7 months pregnant now, and love the cross between challenging and restorative poses this class offers. A friend of mine (who's not pregnant) and I do this class together fairly often, and we even had her husband and another friend all doing it together in my living room one time! :D Thanks Fiji, I love your energy.

I found it quite tricky - not sure it is completely beginner level. I was able to further modify some of the poses though so overall it was lovely and I feel great. Thanks

As always Fiji, your guidance is impeccable. The motions are incredibly fluid from one pose to the next and I am able to follow with ease, my breath matching the pace. Your words always move me to tears of joy. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for these videos you have shared with us. I wish the best to you and your family in this amazing journey of life.

Much love from Oregon,
