'Realize that this everybody, with its aches and pleasures ... is exactly what is needed to be fully human, fully awake, fully alive. Pema Chodran

Do you feel like you are surviving not thriving?

Are you struggling to find good rest?

Do you feel disconnected from your body?

Do you have PTSD?

As long as your nervous system is in survival mode, that response is driving your psychology. 

We often then have associated; 


chronic pain

depression and anxiety

weight gain


and inflammation

that leaves us feeling disempowered with

low motivation

resilience helps you build the muscle of being with difficulty. 

What if you learned 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.

Rest and resilience often go hand in hand. 

Yet it is a challenge for us to find rest in a culture that praises 'more'.


So this class invites you to soften into the powerful possibility of thriving into resting right now. And the resilence will simply follow.

Kendra’s warmth, humanity, and compassion are communicated gently, as she guides me into a deepening, grounding yoga practice. The in-person classes are respectful and inclusive. This support and guidance Kendra offers, and the way she offers it is growing my resilience and ability to flow with the ebb and flow of everyday life. Love it! Highly recommend Kendra’s courses.
