maybe have a look at Lindsay Brin’s videos? I’m not sure what is free and what isn’t…but she does great pregnancy fitness stuff 🙂

I actually have been meaning to find some for myself and this post promted me to look for them. Thing is I want more an Indian Meditative slow streching yoga and not the sort of current USA faster bouncing around ‘excersize yoga’. I found this which looks like what I was thinking.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B87FpWtkIKA  That is something to consider, though, which style you are looking for. I want to stretch and reduce stress and anxiety while improving my posture and tightening my floor muscles.

Have you checked Netflix? You might be able to get some on there.

Swimming might be a good option for you, too, if your knees/joints bother you. The buoyancy in the water is great for taking the pressure off as you grow!

If you have a public library near by you coudl see what they have. I find they often have yoga videos, nad you can try an interlibrary loan if yoru lcoal branch doesn’t have prenatal yoga.

You can basically do any yoga with modifications – no positions on your stomach, no deep, deep full body twists and no inversions (headstand, handstand, etc.). I have a pregnancy trainer, we do all sorts of classes and exercises together – running, spinning, swimm Ing, interval training and power vinyasa yoga, she just modifies some of the poses for me. There are a lot of good, free non – pregnant yoga videos out there just modify. I hope that helps, best wishes!

Doyogawithme.com is amazing. There are several prenatal videos. Just last night my back and hips hurt so much I couldn’t sleep. 20min in of one of their videos and I felt significantly better.

I really liked Shiva Rea’s prenatal yoga DVD. There are modifications for each trimester.
