KENDRA BLACKETT-DIBINGA is the Chief Visionary Officer for Bikram Yoga Works. She holds advanced degrees in public health and public policy and is a certified Bikram Yoga instructor, fascial stretch therapist, personal trainer and a wellness advisor. She has taught in a number of studios in the DC metropolitan area. She was introduced to Bikram Yoga after the birth of her second child and has been practicing ever since. Kendra received her certification in June 2011 after successfully completing the Bikram Yoga Teacher Training, a 9-week intensive course where she learned about the Bikram Yoga/Hatha system and received intensive instruction on how to coach students safely.
Kendra understands first-hand that yoga can heal the body. After undergoing knee surgery herself and being told she would never again be able to participate in certain forms of exercise, Kendra developed a regular Bikram Yoga practice to rebuild strength in her knee. Kendra has devoted her life to fitness and wellness not only because of the benefits she has received from her regular practice but as an example to her three children. At Bikram Yoga Works, Kendra wants to share her passion for wellness with you. She will challenge you but you will leave the hot room feeling a sense of accomplishment.
