Debra Flashenberg, or Deb, is a yoga teacher and founder of the Prenatal Yoga Center in New York City. She’s a labor support doula, a childbirth educator, and a mother of two kids.
Debra was trained in prenatal yoga before she had really had any experience with birth. After watching some live births, she realized that what she was teaching did not give the full picture of what women were heading into, and she now teaches prenatal yoga across the country.
We talk about the difference going through pregnancy made on her practice, how she uses yoga to support women before and after birth, and the important changes to make to your traditional yoga practice when you are pregnant.
