Is the lesson just for one student or will there be other people in the group? The more people the more the teacher will probably charge?

Are there any special needs or training that the teacher should have beyond just yoga certification such as CPR skills, prenatal yoga training or medical knowledge of how to deal with a torn rotator cuff?

How experienced or new is the yoga teacher? Are they a full time teacher or do they just teach one class a month?

The student should do some online research and see what kind of reviews and feedback the teacher has received.

Is it just one session or a longer series?

Does the student have a yoga mat, blocks, yoga blankets or will the teacher have to supply one?
