@Ninteenthchance:  I’ve heard good things about prenatal dvds.  One of my coworkers is pregnant and found a prenatal stability ball video.  If you are interested I can find out more details for you.

@Ninteenthchance:  I don’t think they are silly at all! They could be a very nice supplement to the class you go to. The only thing that makes them not as great as a class (for beginners) is that there is no instructor to correct your form, however once you get introduced to yoga they will be a nice option. Especially if you can get some geared for pregnant ladies! 🙂 Good luck 🙂

@Ninteenthchance:  I’m not sure what it did with my weight because I don’t keep track of that. But it did help my body feel stronger and more balanced. When I took yoga/pilates fusion I definitely felt way more toned! 🙂 Have fun!

I loved pre-natal yoga and think it definitely helped me “bounce back” to pre-baby weight (well, that and breastfeeding!) quicker than I thought it would.  I also found that it relaxed me and helped with the back and hip pain I started to develop around the 6-month mark.   Just make sure your instructor is familiar with modifying the regular moves for you ~ if not, I’d absolutely seek out a pre-natal class.  Have fun ~ I hope you like it!  

As far as weight loss I found Bikram (hot yoga) worked for me.  However, the classes are 90 minutes and you are a total sweaty mess afterward, so it’s a big time commitment.  I had to drop out when I got promoted at work because I just don’t have the two hours a day I can devote to practice anymore.  I do, however, really miss it…I’ve never been so toned & limber as when I was doing Bikram regularly!

@Ninteenthchance:  It turns out she just went on youtube and seached for prenatal workouts and found it there!  I just did a search and there are tons!

@Ninteenthchance:  I’ve found that gym yoga classes tend to be more “active” than more beginner type classes at a Yoga specific studio. My gym leans towards Vinyasa Flow which is very active.

@Ninteenthchance:  It depends on the class. Power yoga and hip-hop yoga are both great workouts, but yin, hatha, and any of the Level 1 Vinyasa classes aren’t quite as athletic. I mix yoga with cardio.

Yoga has changed both my body and life.  I didn’t fall into yoga as a means to lose weight, but more as a way to quiet the noise.  Mainly I practice a heated Baptiste power yoga (vinyasa) 3 days a week.  I also do some light cardio and weight training 2 days a week.  Yoga makes me feel strong. My arms are toned, waist slimmer, and my body is more flexible.  I love the challenge of a vinyasa practice. 

Yoga also has helped me kick my soda habit and fill my body with more healthy foods.  I still eat chocolate, but in moderation.  I don’t feel the need to binge on unhealthy foods.  I tell my friends yoga is a lifestyle, not just a class.
