Kendall Sheldon

Kendall Sheldon, a founding teacher of All That Matters’ yoga program (1995), comes from a family of yogis. Practicing with both her mother and uncle, and meeting Swami Kripalu set her on her path as a teenager. Certified by the Kripalu Center in 1980 and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Center in 1994, Kendall has been sharing yoga with students and clients for over 30 years. In 2009 she completed the advanced training in Integrative Restoration (iRest®) with Richard Miller, PhD – who developed this modern adaptation of the ancient meditation practice of yoga nidra. Kendall continues to explore deeply, training in Essential Low Back Care Training with Robin Rothenberg (2011), and assistant teaching at Kripalu's 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Kripalu and at All That Matters. Kendall teaches yoga as a practice of self-inquiry that invites students to experience their greatest potential.
