Prenatal Yoga DVD reviews:
With a 3.9 out of 5 stars in amazon and more than 700 results, Shiva Rea’s Prenatal Yoga proves to be an eye opener to pregnant women who want to bring their precious ones into this world while maintaining their health.
On the other side, users say that Shiva Rea moves too fast one posture to another and by the time one learns to perform a specific pose, the lesson would have moved to another.
Shiva Rea’s Prenatal Yoga is best for women who like to practice at home. Some of the specific techniques may be difficult (not impossible) for beginners, while it would be considered the best for women who are already aware of Yoga basics.
