Description

This Pregnancy App has been created for ladies who have never practised yoga before they were pregnant as well as for ladies who are experienced yogis. It shows postures that help keep you active during your pregnancy. It includes breathing techniques to help you relax while you're pregnant and for when you are on your special journey to meet your baby. Using this App means you are taking time for you and time to connect to your baby through your pregnancy.

Practising yoga during pregnancy can be highly beneficial for you and your baby. Yoga helps build strength and encourages relaxation. The postures help you adapt to the changes in your body that occur during pregnancy and the breathing and relaxation techniques enable you to relax more easily.

The exercises are shown in short sequences and the instructions and demonstrations are easy to follow. The chapters mention adaptations for ladies who suffer from pelvic girdle pain, heartburn and carpel tunnel syndrome where appropriate.

It features two relaxations often useful after a long day at work:

A short one, which encourages making time to connect to baby.

A longer one, which is a complete relaxation using the visualisation of floating on a cloud. Imagining you are floating on a cloud is a wonderful way to you to keep you calm and relaxed.

THE SEQUENCES:
Warm up:
Not only warms the joints and muscles, but can release energy blocks in the body, thereby giving you more energy.

Cat posture:
This is a fabulous posture to help keep your spine supple as well easing those backaches some of you experience. Practising Cat Posture also gives baby the opportunity to be in the correct position for birth and this posture can actually be used to give birth.

Standing Sequence:
Shows a circular movement to help keep your hips fluid. Incorporates squatting which help strengthen legs and a gentle twist.

Flowing Sequence:
Is a series of postures, flowing from one to the other.

Warrior:
An empowering posture for strength.

Pregnancy Pelvic Floor:
The pelvic floor is an important part of anyone’s anatomy. However pregnancy places extra weight on the pelvic floor,

This chapter not only explains how to practise the exercises, but also gives an unorthodox visual aid to encourage you to do so.

Anna White is a qualified British Wheel of yoga teacher who specialises in pregnancy yoga, which she has been teaching for over six years. She teaches five classes each week and many ladies attend her classes. Quite a number of them are now going for their second pregnancy and some are on their third. Lots of them have commented how much they have enjoyed the classes and how useful the breathing techniques have been when they are on their journey to meet their baby, keeping them calm, relaxed and focused during their contractions.

It was the ladies from the classes who suggested to her to produce a DVD and from that this App.

Garbage app! Totally disappointed!

Bruffy14

Just downloaded this app and I'm completely disappointed! You can't go back when you've played an individual clip you have to shut the app down and reload it. If you play the full thing with intro etc it won't skip forward in sections. The exercises as a regular yogi myself I found waaay to basic! This is for beginners only so the description seems inaccurate to me. I thought the pelvic floor section would have actual exercises but it just explains what happens and why to exercise your pelvic floor... I already know!! Complete waste of money, I'd be disappointed even if it was a free app!

Very nice

Lovely gentle app for beginners. I could feel my baby moving throughout. Only negative I would've liked to stay in some of the positions a bit longer but had to move to keep up with instructions. Maybe as I get to know the sequence I can adapt this myself.

Excellent pregnancy app

MrsKimmyD

I would recommend this app to anyone who would like to do some gentle, relaxing exercise during their pregnancy. Perfect for when you can't make it to classes. It has helped me to keep active and calm during my pregnancy. Excellent app, worth every penny.
