Fairly relaxing and helpful, but at 36 weeks with lower back pain, the side floor stretches at the end were difficult and not comfortable.

Wonderful class with gentle but effective stretches! I’m 25 weeks and this is a great class to relax with. I would love to see more prenatal classes on the site.

I feel this is more appropriate for early trimesters. However, being 32 weeks along, I feel there wasn't much reference for support. The laying twists pulled my growing belly and ended up hurting my back more than relaxing.

I am also a goga teacher and specialized in pre-postnatal yoga as well,and I found this class very gentle and focused, too. Activating and bringing awareness to the areas needed for a pregnant woman,relaxing and opening through concsious breath...very creative and loving. Thank you.

I haven't been carrying a child for 15 years , but this class felt great on my nagging back issues.
Sarah , could you do a few series for the many of us who suffer from scoliosis? Or you could rename this for baby and back issues.
I am thrilled I took a chance on this class and will do all of them in the series , my back feels much better.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart and back!!

When do you expect to release the other parts of the 4-part series?

I was looking for something a little more relaxing and shorter than my normal prenatal classes (I often do Fiji's, from this site), but this was just way too gentle for me...it felt like doing almost nothing.

This class was exactly what I've been needing. I'm 31 weeks pregnant and have been struggling with horrendous low back pain since around week 24. While the last twisting poses were too much for my back to handle, everything else felt wonderfully opening. My body and baby say thank you :)

This was a gentle, sweet class that helped open up my back. It was perfect for an evening where I wasn't up for any power yoga. My growing belly has sometimes been keeping me up at night because of the tightness it causes in my back, and I'm sure this will help tonight!
