I am currently 28 weeks pregnant with my 3rd girl and wanted to try some exercises which are safe to do in pregnancy which might help with my sciatica and backache, so decided to give “Bliss from within” a go. I had never tried yoga before as I simply don’t have the time, but thought i’d make a bit of time for myself. I was a bit sceptical that i wouldnt be able to do many of the poses- not being the most agile of people, but was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. It has 3 ladies at different stages of pregnancy doing exercises to suit them best, so I could copy the lady closest to my stage which was good. There was one or 2 exercises which i found a bit difficult due to my backache, but im sure if i keep trying i will get better at it.
The breathing techniques they showed have actually helped me with my breathlessness and dizzyness also.
The extra’s on the DVD were also helpful in that they showed good labouring positions and massaging techniques for my partner to try out, and pelvic floor exercises which i have tried before but this explained it a lot better than my pregnancy book.
The instructor “Zoe” seemed genuine and didn’t go changing positions too quickly. There are a few “props” needed but there is a bit explaining what household items you can use instead. All in all I’d say a great purchase for expectant mothers wanting a bit of “me time” to relax and get prepared for the birth (if thats possible lol)
