I’ve taken a range of Kendall’s classes and each one is just as great as the last. My favorite thing about her teaching style is that she does a great job of talking through the poses so I can understand the movements without having to keep my eyes on her the whole time. Her modifications always hit the spot as if the class is being geared directly towards my personal practice and the music is always on point with the flow. I’m so grateful to have found Kendall at a local studio because now I’m able to enjoy her online classes just the same!
KATIE G
Kendall is a personable, calming presence and leads her classes with such knowledge and ease. She is thoughtful to the needs of her clients and seeks to tailor each class to these needs. Kendall’s knowledge of yoga and the mind/body connection is evident throughout. Sometimes, the only time I felt truly relaxed and calm was during and after Kendall’s classes. Her classes helped me at a time in my life when I was feeling a lot of tension and anxiety and I will always be grateful for her!
