'Realize that this everybody, with its aches and pleasures ... is exactly what is needed to be fully human, fully awake, fully alive. Pema Chodran
Resilience is the art of being able to break patterns of stress using a heightened self-awareness to down-regulate your nervous system.
When you use awareness to self-regulate you lean into an existing wholeness that is untouched by trauma and pain. This awakens unique human qualities of compassion, curiosity, creativity, and connection with others. Resilience isn't about avoiding what's difficult, or skipping over challenges.
Instead, resilience helps you build the muscle of being with difficulty.
By building your resilience, you can train yourself to make wise decisions and access choice - even during times of incredible change and stress. It also helps you develop greater clarity, and a clearer sense of identity, meaning, and purpose.

As a sufferer of chronic back pain, I was desperately seeking a yoga class that would be kind to my body, without using force or straining to get into impossible postures. Thankfully after trying out a few different yoga classes I found Kendra’s yoga classes.
Kendra’s gentle yet uplifting approach allows me to work at my own pace; progressing with my yoga practice in my own way. After each class, my batteries feel recharged and my mind nourished. I really am grateful to you Kendra for helping me literally place one
foot in front of the other physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
I joined Kendra’s Yoga class as I wanted to supplement my treatments of neck, back and knee problems with gentle exercise. Many months later I began to notice that when I feel better physically, it helps me mentally. The relaxation and meditation work seems to link my mind and body, and my depression is lifting as well.
