Course Description

Prenatal Yoga will help you experience your pregnancy more harmoniously, release the pains you might be experiencing, and prepare you for birth with confidence. It puts us in touch with our baby through deep breathing and well-being. As we breathe, so we live!

These prenatal yoga classes emphasize on the basic principles of Prenatal Yoga and prenatal yoga poses. Even if you have never done yoga before, if you are in your second or third trimester of pregnancy, this course is for you! I provide step-by-step guidance to help you understand the fundamentals of using yoga to connect with yourself and your baby and to achieve the following through the prenatal yoga poses:

  • strengthen the legs to better carry your upper body
  • give flexibility to your perineum
  • loosen the back pains
  • help with sciatica
  • relax the nervous system
  • strengthen the immune system
  • help you keep balance as your gravity center shifts
  • give you daily tips such as getting up and lying down
  • bond with your baby in-utero

And overall, give you strength, help you trust yourself, and guide you in your ability to be at ease and remind you to breath deeply.

Thank you for your interest and I hope this course will benefit you greatly during your pregnancy.

Curriculum

This is a promotional video to introduce my course to prospectus students. 

Section 1: Introduction
04:04

This video is a bit more extensive than the Promo Video so please make sure you watch the entire video before proceeding to the practice videos. In this video, I give an introduction to the course and what you should be aware of before our practice together. 

Section 2: 75-minute Prenatal Class (broken into segments)
14:22

A seated pose serie to settle in, ground yourself and start working on loosening the back. During these seated pose, you will be guided with the breath and get in touch with the perineum to start making it flexible. A great way to start the class or to do separately to help release the lower back, middle back and upper back.

12:28

A warm up for the spine and side stretch to prepare you for a special sun salutation adapted for you with tadasana (mountain pose) to ground you and give you strength.

12:17

A standing series pose to strengthen the legs so that the upper body feels lighter and you feel stronger followed by a series of perineum exercices that will help you deliver and help your baby have an easier way out.

13:59

You will start at the wall with Tree pose, which is a hip opener and a great pose to fell empowered. Then ardha uttanasana at the wall; turning your feet in is an amazing pose for sciatica and opening the scarum. Legs up the wall is a pose I recommend to do everyday, coming home from work or after walking a lot, and experience the true benefits or inversion-total relaxation of the nervous system. If you have issues with insomnia, I recommend legs up the wall (the hardest part being getting out of bed!). But if you do, and do this pose for 3 to 5 minutes you will go back to sleep!

11:27

On the floor, a series of poses to help you with sciatica, help you release the sacrum, and extend the whole spine. A must everyday to release the tension in the lower back and make you feel relaxed.

15:17

Dive into a deep relaxation for wholeness and well being!

Instructor Biography

Tatiana Abbey, Yoga Instructor

Tatiana discovered yoga more than 15 years ago in New York at the Integral Yoga Institute, founded by Swami Satchidananda. It opened her mind to a higher consciousnessof self, others and life. It is to her a preventive practice for good health, both mentally and physically, and a way to know oneself and therefore co-exist in peace.

After an acting career in New York, Tatiana came back to France and attended the Teacher Training at the Centre du Yoga du Marais with Michelle Jacobi, Joyson Rosario et Chantal Tacoronte-Perez. She became a certified yoga instructor in 2009 (Yoga Alliance) and continues to teach and practice daily. She is also certified by the Radiant Child Program to teach children ages 0-12.

In 2010, she became certified by the Bernadette de Gasquet Institute to teach pre-natal and postnatal yoga and has taught hundreds of parents in both English and French.

In 2011, she became a baby massage instructor via the French International Association for Infant Massage. Her teacher, Christel Proudhon, is world-renowned and trained Tatiana in profound and useful ways of parenting.

Tatiana Abbey-Chartier a découvert le Yoga il y a maintenant 20 ans à New York au Centre Hatha Intégral Yoga Institute, fondé par Swami Satchidananda. Le Yoga l'a ouverte a une plus grande conscience de soi, de la vie, des autres. C'est à ses yeux une prévention au niveau de la santé physique et mentale, une façon d'apprendre à mieux se connaître et à coexister.

Après avoir été comédienne et vécue à New York pendant 12 ans, elle rentre en France et suit la formation de Michelle Jacobi, Joyson Rosario et Chantal Tacoronte-Perez. Diplômée du Centre du Yoga du Marais en 2009 (Yoga Alliance YTT) , elle continue depuis à se former. Elle obtient le diplôme de Radiant Child Programme de Yoga pour les enfant.
