YOga INstructor, Santa Fe Thrive
A native to Santa Fe, Kendra returned home four years ago to complete her Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She first fell in love with Ashtanga yoga when she wandered into a class in the small town of Bristol, Vermont during her last year at Middlebury College. After graduating, Kendra found that she was not ready to leave Bristol Yoga. She was incredibly fortunate to spend the next four years apprenticing with Christine Hoar, Founder and Director of Bristol Yoga and Ashtanga Montauk. Coming from a childhood gymnastics background, Kendra was initially drawn to the strength and challenge of the physical practice. Her training with Christine instilled a desire to study the full breadth of the Ashtanga practice, as well as Yogic Philosophy and Ayurveda.
Kendra continues to study and surf with Christine whenever she can, and over the past decade has had the opportunity to practice with Sri K Pattabhi Jois, Nancy Gilgoff, Tim Miller and most recently Louise Ellis in Rishikesh, India. Now practicing as a licensed Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Kendra is thrilled to be teaching again, and to share her love of Ashtanga yoga in her local community. She strives to continue in the authentic, compassionate and joyful tradition of her teachers.
