Show Notes

Soccer pro (Portland Thorns, Western Sydney Wanderers, Sky Blue FC) and performance coach Kendall Johnson shares why she really came on the Podcast and then dives into her five-year journey overcoming a concussion.

Kendal discusses the untapped potential in athletes in the emotional and spiritual space and society's pressure to listen to others instead of what your body is telling you. She talks about what makes Sydney so special to her and what playing in Portland's massive crowds was like.

Jason and Chris ask Kendall about what's next for her, and she talks about somatic work and her "come forward." She discusses how she uses energy more intentionally and productively in her workouts, now being her "own guru."
