Kendria Elliott — Yoga in Overland Park, KS
 
Kendria Elliott, 200 RYT
I was in a place of despair when I discovered the true essence of yoga. I was critically ill with UC, and although I had been practicing yoga for many years, it wasn’t until my body was demobilized that I understood that yoga was much more than just a physical form of exercise.On my slow path to recovery, I used yoga breathing and meditation to help me get through the long, painful days. Ironically enough, after two years of immobility I emerged as a much stronger person. Not physically stronger, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually stronger. I am now feeling better than I ever have. Good things have come into my life, and I want to share the practice of yoga with others. I have been practicing yoga for more than 15 years and I received my certification of 200 RYT with Christy Burnett, and Emily Darling at Darling Yoga in Kansas City. I specialize in foundational Hatha yoga, but also love a good Vinyasa flow! I honor the ancient practice of yoga and view teaching yoga as a way to share what I love with others.

Keri was becoming….herself.
With a 130 pound weight loss, countless 5K’s, 10 K’s, half marathons and obstacle courses to her credit, Keri’s heart turned to yoga teacher training.
