31: How To Work With Pregnant Yoga Students with Guest Teacher Deb Flashenberg

Have you ever had a pregnant yoga student walk into your group yoga class and immediately think, “Oh crap. I don’t know how to modify the practice for her or keep her safe without changing my whole plan!” ?

Today’s podcast episode with prenatal yoga expert (and my old friend!) Deb Flashenberg will cover everything you need to know on this subject!  Deb is the founder and director of the Prenatal Yoga Center in NYC and host of the podcast, Yoga | Birth | Babies.  She is also a certified prenatal yoga teacher, labor support doula, childbirth educator, and mother of two. Deb is passionate about establishing safe, effective, and empowering yoga classes for pregnancy and beyond and she is full of wisdom for all yoga teachers.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Some of the most important things teachers can keep in mind when trying to accommodate a pregnant student in an open level asana class.
  • What can happen when a pregnant student doesn’t modify her practice and how might it affect her birth.
  • How we feel about the saying- “if you did it before you were pregnant you can continue to do it pregnant”.
