Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
This video offers an exercise program appropriate for pregnant women. The class features women in various stages of pregnancy, from first to third trimester, demonstrating a variety of basic yoga poses and some Kegel exercises. It also instructs viewers in the use of mind-body awareness to connect with their bodies and growing babies. Every pose in the video is modified to make it pregnancy-compatible. The women in the video seem proud of their pregnancy, which may have the effect of making viewers more comfortable with the changes their own bodies are undergoing. The video ends with a quiet meditation and is accompanied throughout by gentle instrumental music.
