Hi, I’m Kendra.
That’s me with an octopus on my head because sometimes, a girl’s just gotta have fun.
Fun for me is:
- a night out dancing to a DJ who can give Pete Tong a run for his money,
- sitting under a tree and pouring words onto paper,
- hanging out with kids and adults that bring out my inner child,
- making old things new, and
- camping and sleeping under the stars.
Fun for me is also seeing people come alive.
Eyes Lit. Body turned On. Volume turned Up.
The work I do centers around one thing: You being more you.
Connecting to that place inside that feels like home. You may have forgotten what it feels like, or how to get there. That’s OK. I get lost too.
It’s a journey, can be a fun one, and you’ll get there.
This virtual home of mine is a collection of writings and ways I’d love to support you along the way.
If something you read nudges you to connect, I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a note.
The best way to stay connected is through my newsletter. I send out musings and happenings roughly twice a month.
See you around and hope to meet someday.
Kendra Tanner is a certified EMBODY Dance Class teacher and is currently under Nadia Munla’s tutelage and mentorship to certify as an Embodiment Coach. Kendra trained as a Life Coach with Jacob Sokol in 2014 after a 10 year Human Resources career in NY and London, and became fascinated by the common threads in our shared humanity that disconnect us from our true selves, and for some (including her!) manifest into disordered relationship with food and body. She spoke about that at TEDx here.
As her personal healing continued, her professional work deepened to include a more body-based trauma-sensitive approach. The completion of Foundational Trauma Awareness somatic training with Somatic Experiencing practitioner Tanya Syed, and EMBODY Dance Class certification, heightened the importance of including the body in connecting to one’s self.
Since teaching EMBODY in 2017, her connection to the collective Feminine has deepened and in 2019, Kendra began a 1 year immersive training and mentorship to help women access their personal feminine wisdom through their bodies.
She runs EMBODY dance classes, workshops, and retreats for women, and offers private coaching for all humans through personalized retreats in Wales and in a more traditional on-line format. She has lovingly been referred to as a sherpa, natural facilitator, and just a little bit crazy 🙂 . Her approach weaves mindset tools, somatic experiences, and contemplative practices to facilitate connection with your true self.
You can read and listen to her stuff here.
A New Yorker living in Wales, she is learning to Slow. Right. Down.
