Through her experiences teaching support techniques and attending births, Bec Conant has developed an understanding of how meditative, yogic, body awareness plays a vital role in labor and delivery, and how the yoga practice can foster that connection and inner wisdom. She has taught hundreds of pregnant women throughout the Boston area at The Blissful Monkey Yoga Center, Isis Parenting, and Inner Strength Studios. In New York she taught at OM Yoga, The Prenatal Yoga Center, and Yoga Haven in Westchester.
Kerry grew up in Canada and has spent most of her adult life adventuring around the world while experiencing different yoga styles and teachers. She moved to the Boston area in 2016 from Europe with her husband and 2 young sons. 2007 marked the beginning of her teaching journey and she completed her 200 hour Vinyasa Flow teacher training through Frog Lotus International under the guidance of Vidya Heisel and Jennifer Yarro. In April 2016, Kerry completed the Om Births Prenatal Yoga teacher training with Bec Conant and dove into the world of perinatal yoga. This training reignited her passion for teaching yoga and her desire to share the physical and emotional benefits of practicing yoga during and after pregnancy, as well as for conception. Kerry concluded her Yoga for Fertility training with Sue Dumais in 2016 and created Fertile Body yoga, which offers yoga for women who are experiencing fertility challenges. The opportunity to support women on their journeys to becoming mothers had been a desire for Kerry, as she experienced 3 years of fertility treatments and felt that there was a lack of care outside of the medical realm. May 2018 marked the completion of Kerry’s Prenatal training and is now an 85hour RPYT. With a background in experiential education and psychology, Kerry endeavors to provide a relaxed class environment where people can feel comfortable with themselves and where they are in their practices. Mindful movement, alignment, and thoughtful sequencing are the foundations of her classes, while a down-to-earth and light-hearted attitude set the tone for play and self exploration. In 2018 Kerry completed the Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga teacher training with Judith Hanson-Lasater which has slowly steered her practice and teaching to incorporate the opportunity for more rest and relaxation.
