Mindfully Mortal and Therapeutic Yoga with Ken Breniman

I am here to reimagine...

Trauma-informed. Bereavement-sensitive. Thanatologically-inspired. Holistic Yoga Therapy. I am dedicated to supporting people during very challenging life situations. As we are navigating a pandemic, the imaginal cells which help transform a caterpillar into a butterfly have been activated in every single one of us. The ego may not be completely content with its caterpillar status but the ego so seldom is on board with the icky, messy ‘there’s no going back’ process of metamorphosis especially when we are uncertain what waits for us on the other side. This is not going to be easy, and I know there are innate healing energies and inner resiliency within each of us. My life purpose is to help individuals develop mindfully mortal skills by drawing upon years of clinical training in Western psychology, extensive knowledge of yoga, and reverence for ancestral and indigenous wisdom.
