About Célia Hughes
"Born in Paris, France, I am a midwife and a lactation consultant.
I moved to Japan with my family in 2011. I have two kids (a boy born in 2010 and a girl born in Japan in 2014).
Yoga really entered my life when I was pregnant with my first child and then even more when I was pregnant with my daughter, and I never stopped doing yoga since then. I really believed that yoga helped me during my pregnancies and the postpartum.
So after years of practicing yoga and helping mothers to be and mothers as a midwife I can finally combine the two and offering prenatal and postnatal yoga classe with my certificate from the Degasquet center in France. Dr Degasquet is a doctor and a yoga teacher and her nickname in France is “miss pelvic floor”! Because she did so many researches on this subject.
As a midwife I know how important is to stay active during pregnancy and how breathing is the key of everything so prenatal yoga is perfect for that, it helps to stay active, and as the same time working with your body to make the space for your baby. And as a plus you can meet other mothers-to be!!
In post-partum, taking care of a baby is hard work and your body needs also some gentle care. Postpartum yoga may help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and your core muscles, and also offering some pampering time for your body with all the stretching and breathing that comes with yoga practice. And as a plus, you are going out with your baby and you meeting other mothers!
