Review of Yoga With Nerissa DVD/Video

From Spectrum - the Journal of the British Wheel of Yoga - Spring 2004

Nerissa is an experienced BWY teacher and Yoga for Pregnancy teacher. This pack of two tapes is well presented and well organised into sections with easy, clear directions and instructions. These are introduced by Nerissa who is both professional and friendly in her manner. The mothers-to-be and new mums demonstrate their 'special' yoga cleanly. I particularly liked the way the postures are filmed from both the front and the side which makes them clearer to understand and easier to perform while watching the tape. The breathing techniques (which are always the heart of these classes) are excellent and again easy to follow. The post-natal tape shows mothers with babies of different ages, and indicated the different adaptations that are suitable.

I will be recommending these tapes to local midwives whom I meet on their course when they attend the Yoga in Pregnancy session at their course at Bradford University. This tape will be very useful to women around the country who cannot find a Yoga for pregnancy class - due to shortage of teachers! Nerissa balances the sessions well and clearly and calmly explains how yoga helps during the whole process of pregnancy, labour and afterwards. She uses empowering language to encourage women 'We are POWERFUL women, but not SUPERWOMAN! We all need REST' Good advice for us all!
