bare_certification_online_2019_v3-2 (1)

You'll Learn How to:

  • Make your health a top priority even when life feels very busy.
  • Build more self esteem, pride, and confidence from sources that have nothing to do with your weight or how you look.
  • Create a healthier relationship with food, no longer using food as a way to “numb out” and avoid uncomfortable feelings.
  • Find your inner athlete and create a consistent fitness routine that’s all about feeling strong and celebrating what your body can do, not punishing yourself for what you ate yesterday.
  • Detox your mind, learning to identify and release self-sabotaging thoughts.
  • Infuse life with more pleasure (pleasure from music, books, art, being in nature, physical touch, etc.) and how pleasure directly impacts your mood, energy levels, hormones, even your digestion and metabolism.
  • Start leading a bigger, more expansive life. No more hiding, shielding, covering up, or making yourself quieter and smaller to appease others.
  • Everything you learn in this program, you can apply to your own life. Upgrade your own lifestyle, mindset, and health, and feel better than ever—while helping your clients do the same.

Her Second book, Bare, is a must-read book if you want to take excellent care of yourself, upgrade your mental and physical health, build confidence, conquer your goals, crush the patriarchy and look and feel damn good doing it.

Praise for BARE

BARE helped me to wake up and realize that I have the power within to love myself, and I don’t need another diet to do that. I learned that it’s okay to be big (this is helping my business BIG time) and I can love the skin I am in now. I don’t need anyone’s acceptance or approval to be the real me. I can stop hiding me and my body. BARE had a huge role in helping me to end my pattern of emotional eating by practicing the mindful eating tools. It’s been an amazing ride to freedom....

Susan Hyatt changed my life. What happens when you stop shaming yourself about your perceived faults and instead decide to embrace your wonderful imperfect messy self? The life you were meant to live slowly peeps through and sees the light of day. Susan’s work is not a quick fix. It is a journey that takes commitment and love, but it will change and improve the trajectory of your life!

Sharon M. Kelley, M.D.

The BARE Method changed my entire life trajectory. Picture a woman with a husband and three kids staying up on the phone surfing the web for the latest diet craze. For some quick solution to make me feel young and worthy again. Something that would make me feel like I was worthy of my husband’s attention. Now picture a woman who now eats the foods she enjoys and doesn’t hide from herself or the world anymore. The first woman in the picture? Me. Who can eat a meal and not whine about it AT ALL? Me. Guess who has lost weight and kept it off? Me. Guess who is turning her husband’s head with her new attitude about life? Me. Guess who started her OWN BUSINESS?????? ME!!!! Everything changed the day I found Susan and the Bare Method and ladies, I have never looked back!

Brooke Forhan

The BARE message is one of the most important messages in society today. Period. As a disabled woman—a woman whose body cannot physically match what society says it should look like—I spent a lifetime trying to hide my body, trying to keep everyone else from feeling uncomfortable around me, and attempting to manage my shame around it. BARE has absolutely set me free, and I want to empower every single other woman who has dealt with anything even close to what I have to STOP IT. We are fearfully and wonderfully made no matter the shape or size. It’s time for us to treat ourselves with love and respect.
