One of the benefits of practicing yoga training is that practitioners need few pieces of equipment. The most basic piece of equipment in a yoga class is the mat. Lightweight and small, mats afford a yoga student to practice pretty much anywhere.
As a Yoga teacher, when we invite our students to enter deeply into the postures, we are also inviting them to allow memories and impressions to arise from within. These memories and impressions can span the entire duration of our lifetimes.
New practitioners should check with their medical providers and find classes with a teacher who has completed prenatal Yoga teacher training, if possible. Classes often turn into a support group where expectant moms can learn and share their concerns and knowledge.
