Yoga found Kim in 2006 in Portland, OR. A former professional ballet dancer, Kim was drawn to yoga’s therapeutic properties and she rediscovered her relationship with her body through yoga. Remaining a dedicated practitioner from her very first class, Kim received her first teaching certification in 2012. It was in this incredibly transformational and turbulent time that she finally “came home” and immersed herself in the devotional practice of Bhakti Yoga. Stepping into the role of a teacher allowed Kim the space to find her own unique voice not only in the yoga studio, but in all aspects of her life. Most recently, Kim has trained in adaptive yoga with Matthew Sanford. In addition to teaching yoga, Kim pledged herself to the 2013 Global Seva Challenge fundraiser for Off The Mat, Into The World. Currently, Kim is also the Festival Coordinator for Denver Chant Fest, brining the nation’s top Bhakti yoga teachers and kirtan artists to Denver.
Kim’s classes feature a creative vinyasa flow with an emphasis on safety and individual empowerment through Anuasara and Iyengar-inspired anatomical alignment. Continually infused with themes on spirituality and Bhakti, Kim is highly interested in using the physical practice as a gateway to a deeper connection with the subtle body. Kim is keenly aware of how yoga transforms the body and mind, opens the heart and soothes the spirit. She seeks to make the tremendous healing properties of yoga accessible to all those seeking and willing to do the work the path demands.
