About Me Kahlil M. Kuykendall Wellness Therapist and Master Yogi
I am a mother, yoga therapist, doula (birth and postpartum), birth keeper /trainer and women’s activist.
My mission is to enhance the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual health of mothers, babies and families through education and support during pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood.
I have been doing this work in the Washington, DC area for more than 10 years, and it is always growing and shifting. What I know: the process of birth is important, transformative and mysterious. My goal is to help educate women and families about their choices in childbirth, encouraging them to believe and trust in their ability to birth their babies with as little interference and medical intervention as possible. I also believe the greatest expert in the birthing process is the birthing woman herself. Mama. The one who knows her body and baby the best. I trust her. I trust the process. I trust instinct.
Through my work, I strive to create environments where my clients and students feel supported and
empowered as they move through their most vulnerable experiences.
