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!!

It's been a number of years since pregnancy was even an option, but a sore lower back made me look into this class and your post cinched the decision. Good class, Sarah, and let me add my vote to CHopper's!

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 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 :)
