Having a deep passion and interest in holistic health and wellness, Kim believes that yoga is for everyone, and should be available to all. Kim’s yoga classes focus on linking movement with breath. With her knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics her classes involve working on the bodies alignment in the postures, using breath to create a greater awareness within your own body to help clients feel better when leaving the class than when they arrived. Yoga has been a long-time passion that she considers is the best investment she’s ever made. Kim is excited to continue exploring her yoga practice and to be a part of the growing yoga community here in Newfoundland.
