    Hi!
    I have stared pregnancy yoga 3 weeks ago and would now like to join some other activity. just wondering is someone is actually doing a ny classes and if so if they are enjoying it.

    I would recommend pregnancy yoga as they teach breathing tecniques and positions for labour, and you generally come out quite relaxes, but would like to add something else to my weekly routine...
    suggestions anyone?

    thanks

    I can't wait till a place comes free on my local pregnancy yoga! Should be before the end of the month *cross fingers* and I am still going swimming. I slowed down a bit and do less mileage but I go 3x a week and I just seem to enjoy it more and more :D

    And I have to walk everywhere because I don't drive.

    I go once a day and thats enough, but there are countless trips to the loo, then the kitchen for drinks and snacks and round to the shop for the daily paper.

    Hello, I love my exercise so I thought I'd fill u in on how great it makes me feel when PG. I do pilates, aerobics and aqua natal and love them all. I think the pilates is amazing for keeping you toned in areas that wouldn't usually get used during pg. As long as the instructor knows u are pg and u don't over exert urself there is nothing to worry about taking up any classes.

    The pilates and aerobics are just normal classes, the aqua natal is set up especially for pg women. I would def recommend anyone to take up pilates as I think that's what's keeping my bump in shape at the moment and the breathing is great preparation for giving birth.

    I have an antenatal yoga DVD that I do about once a week atm but am trying to build up to doing it more often as my energy levels increase again.

    I haven't joined any classes because I have known from the start of my pregnancy that hubby and I would be relocating. Once we're moved at the end of this month I'm going to check out classes in my new local area. I want to do an aquanatal class especially as I want to go swimming but won't manage it unless I have a class to motivate me!!

    I have the y plan before and after pregnancy. You can get the dvd on amazon. Its been made in 1991 and its a bit dated but the exercises are good! I do both sections each day rather than the 12 mins only one. So I do 24 mins a day and a few mins on the bike!!!
