Postnatal Vinyasa Yoga DVD By Jennifer More Review

Postnatal Vinyasa Yoga

Resume your yoga practice, after the birth of your baby, starting with just 5 minutes of yoga a day!
Postnatal Vinyasa Yoga DVD features:

5 Minute getting back on your mat practice
15 Minute Postnatal Vinyasa Yoga practice with cesarean modifications
30 Minute Postnatal Vinyasa Yoga practice with cesarean modifications
Diastasis Recti Self-Assessment
Pelvic Floor Overview
Guided Relaxation following each practice

Postnatal Vinyasa Yoga has been carefully crafted to allow a new mom the opportunity to resume her yoga practice slowly, starting with the 5 minute, getting back on your mat practice. This practice is designed to get her back in touch with her body so she can safely resume her yoga practice while sending healing energy to the space where her baby lived for all those months. As a new mom it is difficult to find time to fit yoga in, this is why we have created a 15 and a 30 minute practice.

Finding 15 minutes a day to do yoga is easy and she will notice the huge difference it will make. Just 15 minutes a day of making time for herself and the healing of her body, will contribute to more positive moods, more and energy during the day, becoming a stepping stone to reclaim her health and fitness. After making the 15 minute practice part of her routine, she will be able to integrate the 30 minute practice, this is where she will really start to see the benefits in her body, energy levels, strength and stamina. Eventually, with these two practices, she will feel ready to return to her regular yoga practice in a safer and more comfortable way.

Cassandra's Review-  Easy to understand and follow.  I did not see anything that would be too hard to do.  The dvd offers a good pace and you can always pause when needed.  Being able to have the freedom to start yoga again and getting past the fear of pain or stress during the postnatal time, is going to be an awesome journey.

Dave & Beth Weikel's books The Way of Hope and Hope in the Midst of Loss Tour


The Way of Hope is a guidebook for healing after loss. Sorrows visit all of us in many forms: job layoffs, doctor reports, divorces, foreclosures, prison sentences, natural disasters, or deaths of loved-ones. But sometimes it is through brokenness that God can reach deepest into a heart.
Hope in the Midst of Loss is a devotional. Beth Weikel compassionately leads her readers along the pathway of loss--one that she herself has traveled many times--and into the hope that passes all understanding. Through engaging stories from her own and others' experiences, she shines the light of God's Word upon a well-worn path of suffering. Her poignant and moving devotionals allow readers to press through their darkest journeys, sometimes asking themselves and God the hard questions, and finding the answers that only his Spirit can reveal.

Beth Weikel’s Biography from their site:

I’ve been the mother of two talented and godly sons, for which my husband and I are grateful to God, and am the grandmother of a curious and outgoing seven-year-old, Ian’s son, who was nearly eight months old when a roadside IED killed his daddy during his second tour in Iraq, while doing his command with Ghost Troop.

I’ve been a pastor’s wife, published writer of articles and features and editor of a Christian newsmagazine, a secondary English teacher in public school for over twenty years, a volunteer in ministry efforts and civic affairs that support healthy community. Since my retirement from full-time employment, I’ve rediscovered time to enjoy my continuing interest in art, photography, music, gardening and design. My husband and I each facilitate small group discipleship studies, travel to teach workshops, and provide resources and training online ( and In the past six years God has been my Sustainer, Rock, and Friend who has brought me through a series of losses I would have never imagined. I am a Bible student and teacher.

Dave Weikel’s Biography:

After being discipled into ministry through Peninsula Bible Church’s Intern Program, I have been a pastor in the Colorado Springs area. I also served as a church administrator in California. My ministry would be categorized as verse-by-verse Bible teaching, creative outreach ministries, and in-depth discipleship of men. I also was a teacher and school administrator focused on leadership skills to aid organizations.

When God calls us into a season of loss and grief, He becomes our all and all. He meets us and builds into our lives a dependence on Him, so “that we do not rely on ourselves, but on God who raises the dead” (II Corinthians 1:9). My desire is to share this message of dependence on the sufficiency of Christ.

Cassandra's Review-  Powerful in a way that makes the heart feel, while also creating much needed hope.  As a whole the messages and knowledge presented is great to help heal, soothe with the spirit.  I would recommend for people of faith. 

#T4T presented by Month9books/Tantrum Books and GIVEAWAY


Welcome to this week’s Two for Thursday! #T4T
presented by Month9books/Tantrum Books!
Today, we will be showcasing two titles that will tickle your fancy,
and we’ll share what readers have to say about these titles!
You just might find your next read!

This week, #T4T presents to you:


SERPENTINE is a sweeping fantasy set in the ancient Kingdom of Xia and inspired by the rich history of Chinese mythology.

Lush with details from Chinese folklore, SERPENTINE tells the coming of age story of Skybright, a young girl who worries about her growing otherness. As she turns sixteen, Skybright notices troubling changes. By day, she is a companion and handmaid to the youngest daughter of a very wealthy family. But nighttime brings with it a darkness that not even daybreak can quell.

When her plight can no longer be denied, Skybright learns that despite a dark destiny, she must struggle to retain her sense of self – even as she falls in love for the first time.

“Vivid worldbuilding, incendiary romance, heart-pounding action, and characters that will win you over–I highly recommend Serpentine.” Cinda Williams Chima, best-selling author of the Seven Realms and Heir Chronicles fantasy novels

“Serpentine is unique and surprising, with a beautifully-drawn fantasy world that sucked me right in! I love Skybright’s transformative power, and how she learns to take charge of it.” ~Kristin Cashore, NYT Bestseller of the Graceling Realm Series

“Serpentine’s world oozes with lush details and rich lore, and the characters crackle with life. This is one story that you’ll want to lose yourself in.” ~ Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of Legend and The Young Elites

"Serpentine is a beautifully written, diverse book with a unique mythology that isn't common place in YA books, which is sad to say. We need more books like this one."~ Katie Blogger @ Mundie Moms

"Cindy introduces us to a story that is steeped in Chinese mythology. For me, that was a refreshing break from the Greco-Roman and Egyptian mythologies I studied in school. Although, the world-building was something new to me, the story itself was very familiar. SERPENTINE is a journey of discovery -- discovering who you are and how you fit into a destiny. That's a plot I will never get tired of reading, especially since Cindy presents it so well." ~ Sophie Blogger @ PageTurners

"Cindy Pon captures your imagination with beautifully written world building and freshly dynamic characters. You will find yourself completely engulfed in this world of Chinese mythology and fascinating worlds." ~ Reading Teen

Four clans have been at war for centuries: the Kodiak, the Raven, the Wolf and the Ram. Through brutal war tactics, the Ram have dominated the region, inflicting death and destruction on their neighbors. Seventeen-year-old Zo is a Wolf and a Healer who volunteers to infiltrate the Ram as a spy on behalf of the allied clans. She offers herself as a Ram slave, joining the people who are called the “nameless.” Hers is a suicide mission – Zo’s despair after losing her parents in a Ram raid has left her seeking both revenge and an end to her own misery. But after her younger sister follows her into Rams Gate, Zo must find a way to survive her dangerous mission and keep her sister safe. What she doesn’t expect to find is the friendship of a young Ram whose life she saves, the confusing feelings she develops for a Ram soldier, and an underground nameless insurrection. Zo learns that revenge, loyalty and love are more complicated than she ever imagined in the first installment of this two-book series.
"Wow....WOW, WOW, WOW! I have no words to describe how much I love this book. Jenkins writes characters who are just so easy to love, and when you love a character it makes the book so much better. And I loved all the characters. Zo, Tess, Joshua and Gryphon. Gryphon is definitely my favorite - but who wouldn't love Gryphon? Of course I do have a soft spot for our heroine, Zo." ~Bri, Blogger @ Once Upon A Twilight

"Nameless destroyed me in the best way possible. The romance was subtle, but written beautifully. The plot was very intriguing and the pacing was spot on. I loved the entire cast of characters, every single one of them added to the story. Trust me when I say you should preorder it, add it to your TBR, request it from your library, do whatever you have to do to get this book in your hands because if you are a YA fantasy fan like me you need this book in your life!" ~Bridget, Blogger @ Dark Faerie Tales

"NAMELESS is epic storytelling at its best. My mind is still reeling from the world that I have just been immersed in and I don't want to leave it. Can I please have the sequel NOW? Because I need to know what happens next but in the meantime I'm just going to re-read it again and again. Is it that good, you may ask? Hell yes!!! And you will think so too. Trust me." Nancy, Blogger @ Tales of A Ravenous Reader

"To say that I love this book is an understatement. It completely blew me away! I am so happy that I took a chance on it. NAMELESS is one book that you can re-read over and over again and it will still feel fresh! I cannot wait for the world to read it and fall under the NAMELESS spell. Because that’s what I feel like I am under, a spell that has me trapped in Zo's world and won’t let me out! I don’t want out!"~Damaris, Blogger @ Good Choice Reading

"Wow this one was addictive!! For fans of An Ember in the Ashes, Under the Never Sky, and The Winner's Curse, Nameless captured my attention and held it until the very end. Quick read. Slowburn romance. Great world-buildling. Awesome plot." ~ Rachel Blogger @ A Perfection Called Books

"From the start of the story until the very last page, Jennifer Jenkins took me on an emotional ride. Through action, and heartbreak, and healing and relationships forming out of hatred and mistrust, she has created a story of hope and faith and choosing how you want to live your life, and the beliefs that you want to hold, regardless of others around you." ~ Jaime Blogger @ The Best Books Ever

"Fantasy fans, do not miss out on this epic new series. It's got everything that you could ever possibly want out of a all-consuming fantasy book: fierce characters, twisty plot, stunning world building, captivating prose and my favorite, a romance that will make you want to shout out your love for the couple at the top of your lungs. Do yourself a favor, and buy this book right away." Nick, Blogger @ Nicks Book Blog

"Electrifying and intense and instantly and completely captivating, NAMELESS is one of those reads that will make you race through the pages to find out what’s going to happen next. With a fascinating new world to discover, one that is primitive, harsh, brutal, and intriguing new characters to meet who are fierce and determined and deadly, some of whom are cruel and others who are compassionate, you will be immediately pulled into the story and you’ll never want the journey to end." ~ Rachel blogger @ Fiktshun
