Embodied Wisdom For Courageous Women
Welcome Wise Woman
Welcome to this sacred portal of embodiment, where you are invited to open your heart and mind to a pathway of living that honors your inner wise woman, the part of you that is authentic, courageous, and a warrior in this world.
If you are here, you are likely a woman who is looking for resources, connection, and support in awakening the true wisdom of your heart. You express yourself through your emotional body and are looking for ways to develop a deeper meaning and purpose in your life. This may be the beginning of your journey or you may be in the middle of deep transformation that is asking for you to re-evaluate your values and way of being, so that you can grow into a whole new expression of your brilliance.
You may even be one who identifies as a yogini; a woman who lives in this modern world with heart, compassion, and authenticity.
As you bare witness to the grace and challenge of these modern times, you are a warrior of love, who journeys into the depths of what matters most in her life.
A yogini (regardless of religion, spirituality or creed) is a sacred vessel for creativity, expression, social change, and truth. She is fierce, full of compassion, and willing to mine the depths of her soul to bring forth her true purpose in the world.
The door to your deepest wisdom is ready to be openned and nourished; your heart waiting to be discovered at it’s core. All of you is welcome here.
While at university for my doctorate, I studied esoteric spiritual traditions, including authentic tantra as practiced in India, transpersonal psychology, transformative education and learning, somatics, and yoga. Simultaneously, I also was experiencing deep personal and professional transformation — the kind that shakes your world up and requires significant life changes to not just get through it, but to thrive through it.
As I studied transformation, I was also in the midst of profound change. Having gone through this experience, I have a unique vantage point, depth of experience, and practical knowledge that allows me to address underlying patterns of human psychological and spiritual development with powerful tools for cultivating lasting personal, psychological and spiritual transformation.
Your Body is the Vessel,
Your Heart the Guide.
The act of self-authoring, is a choice to live life according to terms of your authentic self; your soul’s code. As social beings raised in families and communities, the values, beliefs, and ways of being we grow up in are not always aligned with the deepest knowing of the soul. Radical self-authorship is the work of buidling your values from the inside-out.
The language of the body is always present and the work is to learn how to hear the body’s messages and wisdom. In the yogic tradition, the heart is known as hridaya. It is the space of the hridaya where the wisdom of the soul resides. This space of the heart, the wisdom of the soul body is the starting point for living an aligned, attuned, and embodied existence.
While transformation can happen in an instant, the work of integrating transformation into one’s life is a daily rememberance and committment. Transformative living requires that you wake up everyday willing to commit to yourself through inner practices, food, healthy lifestyle, self-care rituals, and nurturing relationships.
Taking Kendra’s classes has helped me deepen my yoga practice. It’s easy to roll through a sequence of poses in a yoga class, but Kendra’s instruction and guidance taught me to be more mindful and aware of my body, while exploring my edges in a helpful and healing way. Her classes are not just a workout; they’re a study in understanding and befriending your body, and creating a space to embody your life on a more compassionate path.
Kendra is warm, sweet, and kind. She reflects back a different, more uplifting, version of myself than the rest of the world. She exposed me to new perspective changing ideas and resources that have supported me during deep transformation and growth while stepping more fully into my womanhood and dharma.~ Nicole
