'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.

This gentle mindful breath-centered yoga has a therapeutic focus, and can be done by every BODY, anytime, at any age, and mainly caters for those who like meditative movements, arriving in natural stillness and breath, followed by a 30 minute Yoga Nidra meditation. 

This class is popular so please secure your place today.

This class is a wonderful foundation for learning Yoga and preparation for the more advanced Yoga EMBODY WISDOM Class.

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. Bethany

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. Jude
