The second trimester is often the most comfortable phase of pregnancy. Mom's belly isn't too big, her hormones have adjusted to pregnancy somewhat so she has more energy and morning sickness tends to lessen. It's the ideal time for working out. Sara Holliday has created the perfect yoga routine that will not only help moms-to-be keep their energy levels up at this time but also prepare their bodies for the hard work of labor - all done in an invigorating yet gentle and relaxing way.
Sara, herself, is in her second trimester with her second baby. She knows from experience with her first pregnancy and delivery how beneficial yoga is for moms-to-be. As she does this 34 minute workout with you, Sara explains how the moves and poses can help relieve tension and prepare your body for labor. Done regularly, you will become stronger, and you will relax your body and calm your mind as you flow from one pose to the next.
A fit body and mind is invaluable during pregnancy. Sara Holliday helps expectant moms achieve this goal with this workout. The benefits of yoga workouts during pregnancy include:
- Increased strength and flexibility
- Increased muscle tone
- Breathing exercises
- Stress relief
- Less pain and in many cases, an easier labor
Sara has also released yoga workouts for the first and third trimesters as well.
Quiet your mind and strengthen your second trimester body with Sara Holliday's Prenatal Yoga - Second Trimester. The workout is also perfect for first trimester moms. The DVD sells for $12.99 and is available from fitbysara.com. The only equipment you need is a mat and two yoga blocks.
