Energize, strengthen your body and stay supple throughout all your trimesters in this intermediate prenatal yoga sequence. Recommended props: 1 block, 1 blanket
It feels like a traditional yogaworks class with a nice warm up, energetic flow in the middle, and lovely cool down. Helpful instruction throughout. It’s a nice balance between stretching & exercise/exertion. I do feel more mentally energetic & simultaneously physically relaxed afterwards
Great for when I need to get the blood flowing just a bit but not really strenuous for the second trimester. More like this, please!
This class is a good blend of stretch and flow. Perfect for the third trimester! It starts slow but then picks up pace for a little bit in the middle, before cooling down with more stretching. It's a good level of challenge for the end of pregnancy when everything feels hard.
I'm thirty four weeks today and loved the pace and energy in this class. More like this, please :-)
Definitely had my heart rate up, but not too strenuous in my second trimester. Really good class.
This class empowers me to be more fit during my pregnancy. I used to do this kind of stuff easily, and without exercising as much during pregnancy, this class has motivated me to get back into it! Thank you so much!
Thank you for a great class! My favorite so far! -Jeff's wife - ha ha
overall, I really liked this flow, but I do agree that the mid-section is too fast paced for mamas that are further along. I'm in my 3rd trimester and although I could keep up, I would have enjoyed more time in transitions. If you don't have the hip mobility to swing your leg around your belly to the front of your mat in one fell swoop, you will struggle with the sun salutations.
Thank you for this energising practise. It's exactly what I need.
I was really challenged to keep up on this flow! It was a nice change from most of the very slow and boring prenatal classes, but I wish I had waited a bit to do this one. I’m middle of my 2nd trimester, but would have loved to do this in my 1st and earlier in my 2nd. Not sure I’ll be able to keep up when I’m bigger. But I may try!
This practice left me winded at some points. I enjoyed the challenge of strengthening and stretching my body.
Another great class from Patti's series. A little tougher than some, but perfect for when you're up for a challenge and the adrenaline that comes from it.
A great mix of flow and stretch! Thank you, Patti! Love your videos!
Energy is the exactly what this video brings! A perfect balance of effort and relaxation. Thank you dear Patti!
I also had difficulty with parts of this workout, it's extremely hard to go from down dog with leg extended to putting the leg through to hand when in third trimester. If this had a variation for using the block to transition up from this pose to the warrior poses with extra time in between poses, I can manage to do the flow, but barely. I also like all the other videos in the prenatal journey, but find the flows too hard to keep up and uncomfortable as a third trimester mommy.
I don't know if it's because I haven't stretched enough throughout or if it's just that tough on my body at this point, but I couldn't keep up. :( And I loooooove all the other videos in this series thus far.
Work the right and left sides of the body evenly with a different take on familiar postures in this fun and challenging flow class.
