Kendra Coupland (Durgaputri)

Kendra Coupland (she/her) is a sādhaka, meditation coach and multi-disciplinary artist living and working on unceded Coast Salish territory; specifically the traditional lands of the Swx̱wú7mesh, səl̓ílwətaʔɬ, Xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, and Kʷikʷəƛ̓əm / Stó:lō people. 

After studying and practicing yoga for 7 years, in 2017 Kendra was officially initiated into the yogic tradition by Swami Vidyanand while studying yoga in Kuilapalayam, India. Kendra is certified and registered with Yoga Alliance International as a 500HR RYT, and T.I.M.E. Meditation Teacher. Kendra teaches Integral Yoga, which combines hatha yoga āsana, prā
āyāma, meditation, and bhakti yoga practices into a single cohesive practice. Her teachings branch off from the lineage of enlightened teacher Sri Aurobindo & The Mother, and are steeped in the rich traditions of non-duality, Shaktism, and Kashmir Shaivism. 

As a Black, queer, female-identified meditation teacher, Kendra approaches her yogic practice through a forward-facing, intersectional framework. She is committed to empowering individuals who live in marginalized communities to explore identity, deepen self-awareness, move towards / through the healing process, and co-create a brighter, more inclusive future for all.

In addition to traditional forms of yoga and meditation, Kendra has worked as a documentary photographer for over a decade and uses photography as a tool for self inquiry. Her personal artistic practices include photography, pottery, painting and writing.
