I'm Kendra, a women’s health yoga teacher, aromatherapist, and dietitian. As a 30-something year old woman who has decided to delay motherhood, I’m passionate about doing all I can to preserve and protect my fertility while living a fun, full life.
I love helping women who want to conceive (someday or today) preserve and optimize their fertility all without restrictive diets, exhausting exercise, and extreme measures.
There's no shortage of confusing, conflicting, and overwhelming PCOS, fertility, and women’s health nutrition info out there. Social media, books, magazines, TV, everywhere you look someone has an opinion about what you should or shouldn’t be eating to get pregnant, balance your blood sugar, or “cure” your PCOS.
There are those who'll tell you Keto's the way to go. No, paleo. Mmm mmm, you should try intermittent fasting. But these one size fits all rules and plans don't fit your life or likes. 'Cause you, my friend, are one of a kind.
Weaving together mindful movement, delightful and nutritious food, aromatherapy, and self-care practices, you can get relief from your symptoms and enhance your health and fertility with joy, ease, and simplicity. 'Cause the journey to health shouldn't be filled with deprivation, confusion, or drudgery.
I promise, you won't catch me recommending:
Just not my style. And honestly, none of the above leads to long lasting health, happiness, or balanced hormones. They just leave you feeling hungry and anxious. Also, not my style.
Make yourself a cup of tea, get comfy, and have a look around the site. You’ll find fertility and PCOS yoga info, women’s health tips, and the occasional overshare about my own personal journey.
