Dr. Becky

I am a Webster certified chiropractor that has helped many moms before, during, and after pregnancy to function better overall since 2013. My passion is working with pregnant women because of my own birth story & how it affected my health as a child. My goal is that every mom feels confident, in control of their choices, and that they trust their bodies to do what it does best.

I’ve been supporting moms and babies since 2013. I have advanced training to work with moms and babies and hold the certification of CACCP with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. I believe that women should be respected and have compassionate care during their pregnancy and birth. My passion is working with babies and children with various health concerns so they can function better and live life at their fullest potential.

I received my Bachelors of Arts from the University of South Florida and my Doctor of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia and decided to become a Maximized Living Doctor.

Brenda Nakidimen

at Yoga Landing

Private and Group Prenatal Yoga


I have 200hr Yoga Alliance Certification through Yoga Landing’s Teacher Training Program and am continuing an intensive 300hr yoga teacher training program. I received further training in Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga instruction through Asheville Yoga Center. Yin-Yasa and Yin are among the many styles of yoga I teach and am passionate about working with pregnant women. I approach Prenatal yoga using slow, mindful movements for moms at any stage in their pregnancy and believe that yoga can help bring balance to a woman’s life. I recently left the elementary classroom after almost 30 years of teaching and I’m enjoying this next beautiful chapter in my life where there is space to fill the world with all things nourishing and supportive—like prenatal yoga!

I have been working in Public Health for over 20 years with a focus on women's health. After the birth of my first son that specialty evolved into birth services. My family had the privilege of delivering my son at Bumi Sehat in Bali, Indonesia, a birthing center with ancestral practices based in midwifery. Being and working around the clinic for six months allowed me to see birth as I had also experienced it; empowering, transformative and natural. Later I became a registered yoga teacher, certified lactation counselor as well as a certified birth doula. I use all of my past education and experience to bring my work as a doula to my clients. It is an honor to support women and their families in their birth journey.
