Designed to support expectant mothers during their miraculous journey, you will learn to use yoga to connect with your own innate wisdom, your body and your growing baby. Prenatal yoga will assist you in strengthening the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid in digestion, keep the spine healthy and increase overall comfort. It can also help alleviate many of the discomforts of pregnancy such as nausea, constipation, varicose veins, swelling, joint pain and sciatica. You will learn to use pranayama (breathwork) and meditative practices from yoga to reduce stress and prepare for labor/delivery. The class also provides space for you to connect with other expectant moms.

For pregnant women of any level––beginner to advanced.

About Deb:

Deb began her journey into yoga when pregnant with her third child in 2009.  A deep longing for peace and a desire to get her heart feeling again was what drove her to yoga, hearing from many friends that this would help ease the pain of losing a baby in her prior pregnancy, at 21 weeks.

After “floating” out of the first class feeling blissful, she vowed to return.  Deb became a devoted prenatal yoga student, finding that during the practice her mind would begin to quiet and the sad stories would dissolve. Being able to experience the moment as it was, fresh, full of possibility and new became a powerful and transformative force leading her deeper into Yoga.

Deb completed her 250 hour certification in Vinyasa yoga at the Ashtanga based Dhyana Yoga in West Philadelphia and completed a 200 hour certification in Alignment based yoga at Maha Yoga, Ardmore.

She has been to many immersions and workshops over the years gathering knowledge of yoga but maternal connectedness remains the pervasive conduit to the practice, a constant reflection of self and mindfulness as the yoga informs and unfolds from within.

Classes with Deb open up new possibilities enabling each person to chose and chart a direction for themselves, knowing that change happens over time with careful, patient and deliberate movement with breath.

With her unique style of humor, storytelling, and attention to alignment, a class with Deb is sure to be revelatory as she inspires her students to reach into their limitless potential and harness it with awareness and deepness of breath. In this way, Deb connects the dots and delivers more than what many think a yoga class can provide.
