A healing arts practitioner and wellness retreats leader, who specialises in trauma recovery and embodiment, Kendra is an expert in stress management and mind/body skill-building with a focus on safely re-connecting her clients to their body so that they may engage more fully with their life. With almost 30 years of experience, Kendra began her career as an exercise scientist, which soon evolved into a certified Trauma Centre Trauma Sensitive Yoga facilitator, offering yoga therapy, reflexology and meditation. Kendra strongly believes in the body’s ability to self-heal and self-regulate and says in the current climate, too many people are denied this. Her clients receive a highly individualised self-care plan, which includes an integrated hands-on approach using clinical reflexology and yoga therapy, empowering them to be active participants in their own healing at a time when modern medicine fails to offer lasting health solutions. Kendra says most mental health problems are a disembodiment problem, when anxiety takes someone out of their body, removes their sense of ground, sense of safety and ability to be in the present moment. She believes that if you can treat underlying trauma, you can treat mental health. Her success comes from teaching people the ability to self-regulate so if they go home and develop their own yoga practice, they start to know what they’re working with and understand themselves better. She is also a strong advocate for supporting her clients to develop a deeper connection to the felt sense of their body to inform choice-making, cultivate a sense of agency. Kendra builds relationships with her clients that encourage insights about self, others and the world through regular communication and meditation practice; embracing individual uniqueness; reversing habitual stress patterns; learning different ways to move and breathe; regaining healthy biorhythms and developing effective home practices including meditation and yoga. Kendra envisions a health care system where vitally important traditional practices like yoga therapy and clinical reflexology are integrated and respected as preventative medicine, bringing self-empowerment and healing to a financially overburdened system. KHA is grateful to live, create and learn on the sacred lands of the Ngunnawal people and acknowledges that these lands were never ceded. KHA is committed to solidarity and support of the right relationship with this land and the leadership of its traditional custodians. Read more

Yoga therapy is an emerging field of natural medicine that compassionately reintegrates the mind-body relationship. It is a mindful approach to wellness that requires active participation, using the principles of yoga within a professional therapeutic relationship. This evidence-based complementary therapy is particularly effective at improving your mental health, reducing anxiety and depression, and nurturing a deeper knowledge of the self to reawaken a self-healing ability. Yoga therapy can be practised along with conventional medical treatments. ​The heart of yoga therapy rests in eudaimonia. Living a life with purpose, meaning and joy irrespective of any medical diagnosis. It does not simply focus on a disease or pathogenesis, it expands your sense of wellness into salutogenesis.

It is a form of yoga therapy that cultivates great results through short regular practices. It is offered in all of Kendra's classes but is particularly effective as a private dyad practice. You may have already practised yoga Nidra in regular yoga classes by lying on your back and being guided through body sensations. iRest is a yoga Nidra practice developed by Dr Richard Miller that combines traditional yogic practices with Western psychology and neuroscience. It is practised and taught by thousands of people worldwide in a wide range of settings, including health centres, schools, community centres, yoga studios, correctional facilities and military hospitals. It can help you navigate life's challenges and enhance a feeling of wellbeing. iRest has been shown to be effective in scientific trials for conditions including: * chronic pain * sleep problems * depression and anxiety * post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
