Bec focuses on helping women develop strength, flexibility and confidence throughout their pregnancy and post-partum. Bec has studied pre and post natal yoga with Betsy Kase, Janice Clarfield, Judith Lasater. Bec has also assisted Janice in training future pre-natal yoga teachers at Kripalu Center for Yoga and wellness. In January of 2007 Bec completed Barbara Benagh's 15 month course: The Art of Teaching Yoga.

Bec began her training as a Birth Doula in August of 2003 during a pre-natal yoga training. Her first birth experience taught her the value of intuition and a calm, steady presence in birth. Since then Bec has attended numerous births first in the New York area, and here in Boston since September 2005. Bec is certified through Doulas of North America, and to date has attended almost 100 births.

Functional Anatomy with Susi Hately

Functional Anatomy with Susi Hately
Jun 12, 2015 - Jun 14, 2015

Functional Anatomy with Susi Hately
Friday, June 12 – Sunday, June 14, 2015
A New Way of Asana: Think Smarter, See Better.
Friday, June 12, 6:00pm-8:30pm
As yoga evolves to encompass more anatomy, there seems to also be a growing focus on "what poses are unsafe". The poses are merely movements, and if we can learn to move better many of the poses will actually become available to us. Likewise, as teachers, if we can learn to see better, we'll notice where students compensate and more accurately cue them so they can improve movement, reduce pain and deepen their practice.

Introduction to Yoga Therapy: Helping people reduce or get out of pain.
Saturday and Sunday 9:30am-12:30pm and 2:00pm-5:00pm
Yoga Therapy, as a technique, combines the art of traditional yoga postures, breathing techniques and meditation with the modern scientific understanding of kinesiology, anatomy and physiology. It is a balanced and mindful approach to health and healing which enables you to develop body and mind awareness and a sense of ease. This workshop provides an introduction to the concepts and benefits of Yoga Therapy that are easy to apply to yourself or with your students. Bringing a grounded, anatomical and physiological approach to understanding pain, injury and healing - you will learn not only the “what” of how you can help yourself or your students, you will also learn the “why”. An example of the topics we will explore will be shoulder injuries and sciatica. This workshop is ideal if: • You want to assist yourself or others relax and develop self-awareness. • You want to help others or yourself become more mobile, flexible, stable and strong. • You are a yoga teacher who feels emptiness when you give the standard reply of “listen to your body” to people with pain or injury (or another condition beyond your scope). • You are a yoga teacher and your desire to help others is propelling you to want to learn more.
Friday, June 12 – Sunday, June 14, 2015 Full weekend $260 ($275 after June 1st) Saturday morning $60 ($65 after June 1st) Saturday Full Day, $120 ($130 after June 1st) Saturday and Sunday $210 ( $225 after June 1st)
