Mentorship

Welcome To PYC’s Mentorship Mastery Program With Deb

After you’ve completed your 85 hour Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training you may still feel insecure about attending to all your student’s needs and keeping the class safe and flowing. You may feel overwhelmed heading class on your own and without receiving constructive feedback and support that will help you continue to grow as a teacher.

At Prenatal Yoga Center there are two options to continue your studies. In both these paths, you’ll have direct access to me- Deb- as we work to hone your skills and confidence as a prenatal and postnatal yoga teacher. Together we will work to help you continue to carve out your niche in your community as the go to prenatal yoga expert and fill your classes.

While I am here to offer you supportive guidance and feedback, I will also push you to take your prenatal yoga teaching even deeper to find mastery. In both programs you will be teaching and getting direct feedback which can make you more cognoscente of area you can improve upon.

*Mentorship is currently open only to Prenatal Yoga Center graduates.
If you are not a PYC grad but are still interested in this program, please email info@prenatalyogacenter.com

Together we will

  • Have the opportunity to pick up where we left off in our previous studies together.
  • Examine any challenges you encounter in your teaching
  • Review breaking down cuing, transitions, sequencing and being comfortable in front of the class
  • Go deeper into your understanding of therapeutic applications
  • Learn how to offer solid feedback with your students without overwhelming them
  • Discuss how to skillfully incorporate childbirth education and pelvic floor information into your teaching
  • Review your teaching and receive feedback and insight.

Hi, I’m Deb Flashenberg

I am a prenatal yoga teacher, Lamaze childbirth educator, labor suppport doula and self proclaimed “birth and anatomy geek”.

My curiosity and desire to continuously learn about pregnancy, birth, yoga and parenthood have led to my most recent undertaking the podcast, Yoga| Birth | Babies. Giving me the pleasure of speaking with and learning from some of the yoga and birth world’s most influential and respected speakers, Cyndi Lee, Tara Stiles, Penny Simkin, Gail Tully, Pam England, Dr. Sarah Buckley, Rebecca Dekker, Dr. Neel Shah and many more.

Drawing on my experience as a prenatal yoga teacher, labor support doula, childbirth educator and mother, I support the pregnant person with functional yoga asana to create a functional birth and ease into parenthood feeling empowered and honored on this sacred journey of birth and beyond.

For the past 12 years I have had the honor of training hundreds of new prenatal yoga teacher as they started on their journey to supporting new and expectant parents.

I look forward to working with you as you continue to enhance your teaching skills and help you find your best voice as a teacher and leader in your community.
