Becky Richards

Becky has been teaching Active Birth and YogaBirth classes in East Kent since 1991. Inspired by the birth of her first birth (then two more) and a deep-felt passion to support women to be empowered during their child-bearing year, Becky trained with Janet Balaskas, Lolly Stirk and Yvonne Moore. Through pregnancy and post-natal classes, baby massage and also "standard" yoga, Becky strives to enable a close connection with our bodies, our responses, our habits and our strengths. 

Becky’s YogaBirth classes help women to prepare for labour and parenthood. Focussing on the breath, using yoga to get fit and enable the baby to get into the optimal position for a straightforward labour. Her classes provide weekly information on childbirth, peer support and a chance to meet mums to be in their local area.
After a career break from 2009 to 2018 managing land-based charity projects, Becky is back teaching in Faversham and Whitstable and on-line. She recently topped up her training with a 2-year course at the London Teacher Training Group, dedicated to teaching in the footsteps of Vanda Scaravelli - connecting with the earth below and the air around us to develop ease in our mind and body and in how we relate to others with whom we share this earth.
Yoga has provided Becky with an empowering way to nurture herself and she loves helping other people find out how it can help them too.
Our Teacher Training is accredited and endorsed by The Royal College of Midwives
