What you'll learn in this health class:

Postnatal yoga classes help women regain strength and energy that may have been lost during pregnancy.

Classes specifically focus on rebuilding strength in the abdomen, back and pelvic muscle; releasing tension in the shoulders and neck; opening the chest. Classes also address common issues and concerns that may arise in this new chapter of life.

Moms are welcome to bring their babies. Please note that the studio is a 1 flight walk up, and someone is always at there to help you carry your stroller.

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early before taking your first class.

Quick Notes:
  • Wear comfortable clothing (i.e. shorts, t-shirts, yoga pants/sweatpants, footless tights).
  • Strong perfumes and heavy jewelry not recommended.
  • Do not come on an empty belly. Prenatal students should eat something light approximately one hour before class.
  • Mats and props are provided. If you would like to use your own personal mat, feel free to bring it along.

Teacher: Debra Flashenberg, CD

See Classes Taught by This Teacher »

Director of the Prenatal Yoga Center Debra is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory of Music with a degree in Musical Theater. She has spent most of her life performing and was introduced to yoga through a choreographer in 1997. After several years as a yoga student, she decided to continue her education and became certified as a Bikram Yoga instructor. In 2001 Debra headed out to Seattle to study with renowned prenatal yoga teacher Colette Crawford, R.N., at the Seattle Holistic Center. Debra has received certification for Vinyasa Yoga from Shiva Rea as well as completed the OM Yoga advanced teacher training with Cyndi Lee in 2004. Debra has also studied the Maternal Fitness Method with Julie Tupler. Debra currently studies with Cyndi Lee, Genevieve Kapular, and Carrie Owerko. After being witness to several "typical" hospital births, Debra felt it was important to move beyond the yoga room and be present in the birthing room. In 2003, Debra attended her first birth as a DONA certified labor support doula. In that short period of time, Debra has attended about 100 births. She is continuously in awe of the beauty and brilliance of birth. In 2006, Debra received her certification as a LamazeĀ® Certified Childbirth Educator. In September of 2007, Debra completed a Midwife Assistant Program with Ina May Gaskin, Pamela Hunt and many of the other Farm Midwives at The Farm Midwifery Center in Tennessee. Most recently, Debra had the incredible experience of helping one of her clients give birth on the bathroom floor. Luckily, the EMS arrived seconds before the baby did! Drawing on her experience as a prenatal yoga teacher, labor support doula and childbirth educator, Debra looks to establish a safe and effective class for pregnancy and beyond. Debra is the proud (and tired) mother of new baby boy, Shay.
