Don't just go to any class - do your research on the teacher. Remember its you and your baby that are giving that teacher your body and mind to work with. It's vital they understand Yoga and the body. Yoga is not just exercises - it is much deeper and wholesome for every aspect of yourself, body, mind and soul.
