Did you ever do prenatal yoga or are you doing right now..? I know normally yoga helps a lot. I was doing since my childhood. But does prenatal yoga really helped you or helping you?

I am thinking to join some classes. Hoping it will ease my pelvic pain. Not sure though.......

I wanted to sign up for prenatal water yoga last time but never did. The price jumped this time so I think I'm going to pass. But I heard doing it in the water is fantastic for joints and such since you have the water to help balance you and make you feel weightless.

I love yoga, but haven't done prenatal yoga. I like that you can do it even on pelvic rest and other lesser complications.

I love yoga and will be joining a prenatal class in January. Looking forward to stretching my body and meeting some new friends.

I have a DVD, Crunch Yoga Mama, that I got online for around $10. I try to do it 2 or 3 times a week. I haven't had any pelvic pain yet, so I don't know if it would help you with that or not. I would definitely say try it and see.

I love yoga. LOVE IT. I continued to take regular classes until I was about 14 weeks along and now I am doing prenatal DVDs at home. I feel a difference on days that I practice vs. days that I don't. Any pose that gives me a good spinal twist these days is a godsend. I've also noticed improvement in my squatting pose since starting pre-natal, since I now practice it more. I originally got into yoga as a way to study my breathing, but I enjoy the meditation and fitness benefits, too.

I have been googling it lately. I want to start trying to do it. I need to do something. With my SPD, I can hardly lift my right leg high enough to put my boot on in the mornings. I'm hoping it will help.

I love yoga, unfortunately in my area there aren't any prenatal classes at good times. I tried doing regular yoga and found that I just couldn't keep up with the pace of a regular class. Boo!!

Oh! I can't believe I forgot to link this before! If you have a good internet connection for streaming video, try YOME*-*Prenatal Archives - YOME*-

There's free practice on that site for many styles of yoga and the pre-natal stuff is decent with time ranges that go from 5 minutes to over an hour, depending on the amount of time you have available. Even a little bit of movement and breath is better than nothing!

I started doing prenatal yoga around week 15/16. I LOVE IT! I do it 3-4 days a week and I feel so much better and stronger, mentally and physically, on days that I do it. I need more work on my lower squats, but I can tell each time I do it my thighs are definitely getting stronger!
