Videos

We have free videos available at our Vimeo page, including

Birth Prep Yoga: Open the inner and outer hip flexors to create more room and more power for the work of labor and delivery.

Standing Hip Openers: A great video for pregnant mamas to strengthen and release tension in the hips, thighs and lower back.

Postpartum Glutes: Building glutes is crucial! Try this exploration of bridge pose on a wall.

Postpartum Upper Body: Feeling tight and tired in your upper body? This 30 minute practice will help! You'll need a block, strap, and mat.

Pregnant Hips: Tight hips? Weird pains? Relieve pain and tightness in the hip flexors during pregnancy with this simple sequence.

Core Strength After Baby: Safe core strengthening means avoiding flexion poses in order to protect against exacerbation of any diastasis recti. This 20 min. practice is a good, safe challenge!

Alexandra also has videos on YogaVibes, including a series perfect for postnatal mamas! You can join YogaVibes for a free trial, or email us for even better discount codes.

Lauren and her prenatal yoga class were phenomenal! It was the perfect place for me to go to relax, and connect with my body, my baby, and other pregnant women.
— Rose Watson-Ormond, Certified Birth Doula
As a pregnant, working mother-of-a-toddler, I found your classes offered me a moment of calm amidst the chaos that was always swirling! It was such a treat to step away from all of the responsibilities each week to focus just on myself and my new baby, to be grateful for everything that was going well and to focus on breathing and stretching in order to stave off the discomforts that were creeping in. Your personality is a wonderful and rare blend of upbeat yet low-key and you set a tone for everyone in the class to be positive and supportive.
— Jennifer Gallina
The thing that comes to mind for me is how you provided such a space of calm and support. I felt no pressure to do anything that I did not want to. It was a space to feel connected to others also going through a major transition and a place where I could focus on my own body and allow myself to settle a little.
— Lauren Bradley
Regular prenatal yoga practice throughout pregnancy is an excellent way to help prepare your body for labor. Lauren’s classes also help your mind stay focused and positive and keep the bond between you and baby energized. Her class is a stable yet changing community, as one mama leaves to give birth several others join. It is a joyful and fun experience!
