Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga

Available worldwide

Whether you're a yoga veteran in search of an active yoga routine, or you're new to yoga, Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga with Jennifer More gives you all the tools to make your pregnancy journey the best it can be. Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga actively prepares women for the marathon event of childbirth, while helping women discover the power and inner strength needed during this transformative period in their lives.
Jennifer found these empowering and strengthening qualities in the soft flow of Vinyasa Yoga. In her classes, she adapts Vinyasa Yoga for the unique needs of pregnant women, providing a system that works with your body without sacrificing the intensity necessary to prepare for childbirth. By learning to link your breath and movements in a constant flow, you'll get to know your pregnant body in a new and empowering way and increase your ability to work with your body during labor and childbirth, reducing the need for medical interventions.

You will need a blanket for this class; you may need a foam block.

Please watch the Prenatal Precautions video BEFORE practicing this class and read the Prenatal Precautions article that accompany it.

I loved this practice, perfect pace and just challenging enough. I'll be returning to this practice during the next few months

I loved this practice! I'm at the end of my 38th week, and my back has been achy and stiff. This practice felt so good! Thank you:-)

@amandaucsc Thank you for your comment. I'm so glad that the practice works well for you at 38 weeks. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy! ~ Jennifer

I'm more than 38 weeks along and I love this video, especially how you show modifications for later in the third tri. I am in pretty good shape (though I've never been hardcore yogi) and I find this workout to be excellent for a longer, balanced routine. I find many longer prenatal workouts to waste a lot of time sitting, laying on the side, or with the instructor talking through a meditation, all of which is fine if that's what you want, but not if you actually want to get a more typical feeling yoga routine in. Also, I disagree with the comment about this not being recommended to people in later third tri -- this one is perfect for me, everyone's different! thanks. :-)

@Hyena Thanks so much for your comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the practice (I like the block under the hip as well as the bolster for pigeon :) ) I have a couple of DVD's out that have 15, 30, and 45 minute practices you can find them on or on my website Thanks so much!

I quite enjoyed the gentle challenge of this class. Many prenatal classes tend to be a bit too easy when I am craving a workout as opposed to more relaxation, but this class struck the right balance between getting the heart rate up while releasing tension. I really love forward bends.
I have seen a modification to pigeon that I like a bit better,wherein a block in placed under the hip which is opposite the bent leg (not sure if that describes it aptly), but that is simply my preference.
This class is a great wake up on a morning you have a bit of time. I am wondering if the teacher has a shorter (20-30 minute) version or something equally as challenging with prenatal mods for days when you have less time.

What a great prenatal workout. I was worried at first that it was going to be yet another easy pregnancy workout but 20 mins in was happy to have heat in my body & an increased heart rate. Thank you for providing an easy to follow, challenging, connected sequence!

I am in my 24th week of pregnancy and this is one of my favourite classes, i really enjoy the hip openers and the stretching of the back body through gentle downward dog and standing folds. Perfect for any time of the day :-) Thank you

I found the mixing up of the verbal cues and what her body was actually doing to be very distracting and confusing. Otherwise, good if you're pregnant and a little too restricting if you're not.

msbodyiq, posted on July 27, 2013

Thank you! What a beautiful practice. Newly pregnant and a personal trainer I was looking for a practice that was safe yet too over the top with cautions, this is a perfect balance. Absolutely LOVE your clarity, and the fluidity with which this class moves. X

@aprildm7 Thank you so much for your comment! I do have several other videos out, on MYO a gentle class as well as 2 postnatal videos coming soon and 2 DVD's as well. Congratulations on baby #2! ~Jennifer

I absolutely LOVED this class. I am 22 weeks along with baby #2 and this was a relaxing and yet challenging workout. You need to make more videos though! Your cueing and voice are so wonderful!

@Sasha26 Thank you for your comment, I'm glad you are enjoying the class! In the third trimester you can bring your leg out a bit further to accomodate your growing belly, however if you feel that this becomes uncomfortable for your lower back then consider using a block under your hand as demonstrated by the pregnant model. This will allow more space for your belly while keeping your alignment.

Sasha26, posted on May 31, 2013

I absolutely love this class. I am into my third trimester and I sometimes during practice the tummy is on the way but would it be correct way to practice if I open hipps more and leg put more a side, to make more room or space in front of the belly?

jennifermore, posted on May 21, 2013

@iandicus Thanks for your feedback. You are correct that this practice is not going to be appropriate for all bodies. I'm gad that you are listening to your body and not doing it if it doesn't feel good for you. Your yoga practice, especially in the third trimester, should feel good. For many women, especially those who have practiced vinyasa yoga before pregnancy or who start this practice earlier in pregnancy, this practice feels good all the way until delivery. It's important to remember that our bodies are all different and the things that feel good for one person, might not feel good for another simply based on our diverse anatomy and/or previous yoga experience. Thanks for listening to your body and only doing the things that feel good for you! ~Jennifer

I am not sure I would recommend this video for anyone late in their 3rd trimester. The amount of deep forward bends and low lunges make for an awkward practice with a large low lying belly.

@jennifermore I´m very grateful for your response. I watched the video and also read the article. I will talk to my doctor first and hopefully she´ll let me start my prenatal practice soon. Thank you!

jennifermore, posted on April 15, 2013

@NinfaP Congratulations on your pregnancy! There are definitely some things you should know if you are practicing yoga while pregnant. Please watch the precautions video . This should give you all you need to know abut practicing while pregnant but feel free to email me with specific questions after you watch it and I'll be happy to answer them. Thanks! ~Jennifer

NinfaP, posted on April 12, 2013

Hello Jennifer, I´m new in this community. I wanted to ask you, I just found out I´m three weeks pregnant... Is it ok if I continue practicing yoga regularly? Is there anything I should keep in mind or something I should avoid during my practice? Thank you so much!

jennifermore, posted on April 7, 2013

@giakarina So glad you are enjoying the class! Please let me know if you have any questions, good luck!

@mamaguru Thank you so much for your comment. I am so happy that the DVD's were helpful to you during your pregnancies! Much love ~ Jennifer

mamaguru, posted on April 3, 2013

Jennifer, I practiced with your Prenatal Vinyasa DVD throughout both of my pregnancies and loved it! Your wise teaching and guidance helped make the experience of being a pregnant yogini even more wonderful and full of joy. I continue to recommend the dvd to students and friends. Thank you so much for what you are doing and making our yoga practice an integral part of all of our life experiences- esp the most transformative ones like pregnancy. namaste
