Guide Review - Prenatal Yoga for Partners

Prenatal Yoga for Partners is the best pregnancy yoga video I've seen in a long time. It's really the only one I've seen that is geared towards bringing partners into the mix of fitness and relaxation as well. Even if you have a dad who is reluctant to do yoga, Joe's personality will win him over.

Joe and Shazi have great chemistry on screen, you can tell that they practice what they preach as far as working out - together. This is inspirational. Joe says numerous times that this is how he stays connected to mom and baby. This type of role modeling is great for some dads who feel left out.

The work out is definitely a pregnancy workout rather than some hard core workout. It includes a warm up, standing series, and mat based poses. There is also breath work and even a guided relaxation.

The poses taught will help prepare your body for labor, but it will also help gear your relationship as well.
