Kim also holds certificates in Positive Psychology and Positive Coaching from the Wholebeing Institute at Kripalu. Her education in the field of happiness helped her draw key connections between Eastern practices and Western science; a discovery that greatly informs and shapes her teaching style today.
As a yoga practitioner since the early 90s, Kim understood that the work she was doing on her yoga mat provided her the coping skills needed to deal with life’s challenges like the loss of a sibling, a sudden transition to motherhood through adoption, and the fast-paced demands of her position at a local radio station. After 16 years as a student chose to deepen her studies by enrolling in her first teacher training program.
A teacher since 2011, Kim views yoga as a tool for personal development and growth. Through playful sequencing, creative use of props, and focus on functional movement, she helps students connect and listen to their bodies as a source of spiritual wisdom.
