I wasn't aware of the DVD Postnatal yoga by Shiva Rea until a week or two after Brijin was born. Added it to my Netflix queue soon after and practiced the first two segments of it about four times now in the past week. It's very easy going, which is just what a woman needs after giving birth. Plus it's targeting the abs and the back - key areas postpartum. It's been four weeks since I gave birth to my baby so I'm feeling more able to get back into exercise, but I still need to take it easy. (My doctor told me to wait six weeks until I get back fully into exercising, although she said four weeks might be doable, as long as I listen to my body.) I think this workout is a great way to segue back into fitness and into my yoga practice.
I'm a big fan of Shiva as well. She is a wonderful instructor; I really enjoyed her prenatal yoga DVD too. In fact, I rented it for a while through Netflix and eventually bought it since my husband was annoyed it was tying up one of our three Netflix DVDs. Her low-key and specific instruction are always helpful and calming. I highly recommend anything with her name on it.
