Hi! I’m Kim!
How I Found Yoga
I came to yoga as a runner looking for relief for my tight hamstrings. What began as a supplement to my other exercises slowly began to replace them. Yoga had become my focus. Not only was it helping my hamstrings loosen up, but my whole body and state of mind seemed to relax.
My Yogic Life
I completed my RYS 200 hour yoga teacher training program in December of 2012 as well as an extensions program at Core Power Yoga. I then went on to get certifications in Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra as well as becoming a Reiki Master. I found with experience that the larger classes were not the best place for me to help my students grow in their practice. I enjoy working one on one or in small groups, fostering an environment where my students feel comfortable asking questions and are able to relax.
I have continue to deepen my practice through reading, yoga festivals and experimenting with many different disciplines of yoga. Through this exploration I found my true passion in Yin and Restorative yoga. It created a balance in my life that I had been missing. It is impossible to know how wound up you have become until you begin to unwind. Sitting down is not the same as relaxing if you are holding all kinds of stress and tension in your muscles. I realized that relaxation is a learned process. Yin, Restorative yoga, Yoga Nidra and meditation are the path to just that, they teach you how to create relaxation in your body and mind. My hope is that I can help more people begin to discover the power in slowing down. I would love to help you take your first step, in a new direction, for a more balanced life.
