Kendra

Teacher

Hi there! I’m Kendra, my pronouns are she/her/hers and they/them/theirs.  I was born in Canada, originally from Nova Scotia (Unceded and unsurrendered Mi’kma’ki Territory) and have been traveling for more than half of my life; living, learning and working within Dominican Republic, Australian, Canadian, and the American communities. 

In 2020 I moved home to Halifax after living in Seattle for 4 years managing and teaching at Modo Yoga Seattle. Prior to that I was in Vancouver learning massage therapy, studying anatomy and physiology, and working with the Vancouver Modo Studios. Before moving to Vancouver I lived in Toronto attending UofT where I completed my Bsc. in Psychology and Sociology in 2013. 

Training Completed between 2014-2020

  • Yoga Behind Bars (Trauma-informed teacher training focused on anti-racism and body-based tools  to address trauma and promote healing) 
  • 50 hour intensive with The Practice Bali (Tantric philosophy, cosmology and methodology)(20’)
  • Vinyasa Sequencing with David Testo and Dina Tsouluhas
  • Teacher Enhancement with Elena Brower
  • Modo Flow with Dina Tsouluhas
  • Modo Level 1 with Ted Grand and Jess Robertson

It is my privilege to share these spaces and practices with others. I teach because I have received countless practical lessons and tools from the yoga and Buddhist philosophies that have supported me through the last 11 years and I am a healthier human because of the time spent on my mat. My time practicing yoga has created a space within me to make life-changing connections with myself, other people and the world around me.  I am currently creating a program within Nova Scotia to offer yoga in adult and youth correctional facilities. 

When I’m not working I enjoy running, dancing, being in the ocean or forest, and long-uninterrupted stretches of silence.

I look forward to meeting you soon!
