PYC founder and Director Debra Flashenberg states:
"Breastfeeding offers wonderful benefits for both mother and baby. Increased awareness and understanding of breastfeeding helps to support new moms and to reduce the social misunderstandings about it. We hope to help our new moms with their questions about breastfeeding as well as raise money to support La Leche League’s mission to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother."
The event begins with a one hour express yoga class from 12:30-1:30pm, taught by Debra Flashenberg. The class will be followed by a Q&A session facilitated by lactation consultant Andrea Syms-Brown. Hors d'oeuvres will be provided by cooking counselor Jenné Claibourne.
By establishing an ongoing Karma Yoga program, the Prenatal Yoga Center invites students to look beyond their day-to-day lives and be conscious of how their energy and intentions can be expressed to others.
