Prenatal Power Flow

Intermediate II

This prenatal yoga class is designed as an alternative to the normal, slower prenatal classes that are out there. It's for moms who have a strong yoga practice and have not lost that strength or stamina in the first trimester of their pregnancy. The poses are modified for a pregnant body so a mom to be can flow without worrying if the pose is on the "allowed" list.

Ever since I’ve been pregnant I’ve been feeling so nauseous and poorly... really not myself. Today I felt stronger and stepped onto the mat with Fiji and it was like a homecoming. She brought me back to myself so completely. As I lay in savasana and Fiji spoke about the blessing of having the light of two lives inside me, I lay and wept. I think I’d been so consumed with feeling ill that it may have been the first time this miracle truly hit me. Bring on the nausea, I am the luckiest woman alive! Thank you Fiji. You have a beautiful soul.

i was worried since this was figi it may be too intense but the intermediate label was correct, it's not hard, you have a lots of time to explore the poses, which are basic. You stand a lot and it was so nice to be able to do that, even as i enter my third trimester. i would love to see more intermediate prenatal classes here

I love all of your classes, Fiji but especially your prenatal classes! Thanks so much for keeping me feeling centered during this sometimes challenging time.

Wow! This was incredible, this class was the best I think I have ever done, it certainly weedled it's way into every joint and vertebrae, my upper back was nicely clicked which saved going to the osteopath, my wrist and knee clicked back into place, my breathing was freer and my shoulder tension was high lighted. THANK YOU Fiji xxx

Wow... not only the best prenatal class I have taken, but also one of the best yoga sessions. Well put together, no mistakes in wording or missing anything on either side (pet peeves of mine). I feel amazing, this hit every spot I needed it to hit. First digital class I have wanted to download, I will be doing this one for the rest of my pregnancy. Please do more :)

Hi Fiji,

I love this class and have really enjoyed it so far in my pregnancy. Now that I'm getting to the end of my second trimester is still ok to do Cobra? I'm struggling a bit with this and so think I need to cut it out. Also, how about boat? My core feels a tad vulnerable so I thought I'd best check.

All the best,

Julia

This is exactly what I hoped it would be! I love the mix of challenging strength maintaining/building poses and hip and back openers. I was afraid coming into pregnancy that the only prenatal classes I would be able to find would be very yin. Don't get me wrong, I love the yin classes, too, but it's nice to have a class that I can come to that will help me maintain my strength. Thank you!

I've always been a giant fan of Fiji's videos and now that I found out I'm pregnant I'm so glad she has a prenatal video for intermediates. I'm having a difficult time transitioning from the advanced power flows I'm used to, to these very slow and gentle prenatal classes. Any chance we can get another intermediate option on here?! Love your classes, and going to miss the power flows very much these next 8 months!

I thought this class was great - definitely agree w/ other reviewers that it is more challenging (in a great way) than the typical prenatal classes. Thank you to the teacher for posting it! You definitely do need a yoga background before trying this, especially if you are already pregnant.

Finally, a prenatal class that I feel challenged doing. Although I do love the slower paced classes as well, this one is more my speed and I feel like I'm getting the amount of exercise I'm used to. Thanks so much!

Love her classes and knowing she has prepared some prenatal classes is the best!

It's also important that she always give the different variations so we can adapt for our own capacities.

Please keep it up your great work.

Four days ago, I found out that I'm pregnant. I thought I was ready for motherhood, but when the second line showed up, I didn't feel anything besides shock. I feel like I had barely begun to process this change when today brought a total meltdown of regret (cue the hormone-induced, out-of-character bawling).

I turned to my mat and found your class as a distraction to stop the tears. I couldn't even touch my belly at the beginning of the class, and there were a few more tears the first time I "rocked my baby." But by the end of the hour, I felt calm, strong, and connected, like I truly am (though sometimes I forget). And I even felt strong enough to verbally say "hello" to the little twinging feeling in my lower abdomen.

What if taking care of myself also takes care of my baby? What if being myself also teaches my baby how to be themselves? What if parenthood isn't an either/or situation? What if I don't disappear, but just change, like I do every day anyway?

Thank you so, so much for sharing this sweet and lovely class. Baby and I plan to return to it over the next 9 months. <3

I'm in my 3rd trimester and think this video is great! I searched everywhere for something like it earlier this pregnancy and during my previous pregnancy, and I'm thrilled to find a prenatal flow that is intermediate-level. Thank you and wishing you a healthy pregnancy!

Bravo, Fiji! Just perfect for mamas who had a strong practice before, but need to modify for pregnancy. Helped me feel challenged, nurtured, and avoided the usual dizziness I get with regular power classes. Lovely cues and I appreciated the cues to connect with baby as well. Thank you for this beautiful work.

Hello all you wonderful mamas and mamas to be! I am sorry I did not notice this sooner, now that my baby is on the outside my online communications often slip my mind! There was a mistake made in labeling this class and we are working now to correct it, this was intended to be an intermediate class and I will explain why. Many of my students, in person and online, approached me about being frustrated with the prenatal classes they were being directed to once they found out they were pregnant. There was a call for classes that were designed for students with a strong practice who did not want to give that up during pregnancy but still wanted to know they were practicing poses that were safe for the baby. This class was designed for that in mind. I did a series of three classes for the three stages of pregnancy and they get less intense as you go along. I apologize for the frustration and confusion about this class, it is very important during pregnancy that you chose a practice that suits your current level of fitness and ability.

Hi Fiji

Firstly, I would love to thank you for all your amazing classes! I have started doing yoga last November, as my body was feeling really broken and out of shape after having my daughter 2 years ago! I was quickly able to learn the basis and I moved to intermediate classes (some of which I still find quite challenging!). I have now found out that I am pregnant again and though I am happy, I have been feeling a bit beaten about having to give up the more challenging classes. I guess I wanted to ask you whether it is still possible for me to carry on with practising power yoga and maybe modify the classes as you did with this one? Thank you so much for all that you do

I havent done yoga since I gave birth to my first baby and now 19 weeks pregnant with my second. I have been trying to get some yoga in and wanted to try this video. Definitely NOT a beginners video. And she goes so quickly that I couldnt keep up since I had to keep looking up to see what she was doing before realizing she had already moved on two or three times. Too quick and difficult for beginners.

Thank you Fiji for a prenatal class that can be as challenging as we would like to make it. I find most prenatal classes are too gentle for those of us who have a good strength base and modifying non-prenatal classes can be tricky if you aren't sure which movements to avoid. A lovely flow throughout a class that's perfect for active moms-to-be!

I agree with other statements that this is not a beginner's class. That being said, I've been out of regular practice for a few years and I was still able to keep up (mostly) and make it all the way through. It's a great mix of all the strengths you'll need during and after pregnancy. Hope I can keep it up!

I have trained with Fiji's classes for almost 2 years, I am 14 weeks pregnant and tried this class twice. Personally I dont think is a class for beginners, it seems more a class for those that had a regular intermediate practice and want to keep their strength through pregnancy. I have so far being able to do 40 min ; )
