Meet Your Mentors 

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.

Hi, I’m Caprice Abowitt

After sustaining a disc injury in 2006, Caprice was pointed towards the Seattle yoga community and forever changed. She received her 200-Hour Certification with Catherine Munro of YogaWorks (Seattle) in 2008 and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from Cornish. She is a proud graduate of the Prenatal Yoga Center’s Teacher Training program. Studying prenatal yoga has given her the utmost respect for women’s bodies and she is thrilled to be a part of the power, strength and voice found in motherhood.

Caprice is thrilled to join PYC’s faculty for Teacher Training. As a graduate of the program herself, she looks forward to sharing the knowledge that transformed her teaching practice and launched her into the birth community.
