Chronic back pain and endless visits to the chiropractor drove Kim to explore yoga for the second time. Kim believed that the body could heal itself, and saw yoga as an investment in a fully functioning body and a long term answer to eradicating pain from her everyday life. 11 years later and she has never looked back. In 2015, Kim completed her first teacher training in London and in 2016, completed yin yoga teacher training with The Yin Space in Australia.
Practicing yoga has taught Kim how to listen to the body, because the mind has too much chatter; that everything is always changing; and that self love and self compassion is the biggest thing you can practice if you want to make a positive difference in the lives and world around you.
Kim’s vinyasa flow classes will have you sweating with a creative flow, but keep your breath and mind calm with her soothing voice. Kim encourages playfulness and invites students to become explorers of their own body, often incorporating heart focused and grounding themes to help take students a little closer to their truth.
Yin Yoga with Kim
Yin is a slow, nourishing, meditative yoga practice which focuses on passive, mostly seated and supported postures designed to restore balance to the physical, emotional and mental body. Yin works on the Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian system to increase the flow of vital energy (chi/ prana) through the body by targeting connective tissues, like fascia, ligaments and joints where these meridians lie. Postures are held for longer periods of time, with students invited to find an “edge”, and become comfortable with discomfort. Yin is the perfect complement to yang classes and the stresses of daily life.
Kim holds a supportive and light hearted space for students to let go.
Vinyasa Flow & Meditation with Kim
Kim teaches a creative vinyasa yoga class. The movements and sequences are designed to create mobility (strength and flexibility) in the body so students can experience flow in order to inspire a deeper connection to the true self.
The class will explores movement and space within the body, but also beyond the physical limitations. Expect to move in a new way, use mantra, and breath practices. A guided meditation (20 mins approximately) to finish the class and connect to truth, heart and spirit.
