I even ended up joining Gurmukh's Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training in LA, which was one of the best decisions I've made. It was so beautiful to attend a workshop like that while pregnant! She doesn't teach prenatal yoga herself anymore, but her yoga studios in NY & LA still do - so do it live if you can (sadly, her beautiful yoga center in Hollywood recently shut down - it was such a beautiful building & community).
This is Kundalini yoga, so will be a bit different for those who've only practiced Hatha etc, but I love Kundalini. I buy this and the book for my pregnant girlfriends, along with a copy of The Sacred Pregnancy Journal by Anni Daulter. Makes for such a beautiful pregnancy (I know I've used the word beautiful 3x in this post but don't feel like thinking that hard with a newborn).
