Kim first began practicing yoga with her mom back in the 1990's. At this time it helps balance out other activities such as skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing and hiking. After establishing her career in Information Technology and finding that sitting at a desk all day was "not that great for the body", yoga became important in order to maintain flexibility and a peaceful mind from all the daily stresses. After moving around from Utah to North Carolina to Australia to Oakland, she has been happy to land in Reno to spend time with her family. Achieving her Mixed Martial Arts Black Belt in 2012 and being awarded best tester, she went on to obtain her Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. But the body can only handle so many fights and yoga was calling her. Finding the opportunity to finally become a yoga instructor, Kim completed YogaPod's 200 YTT June 2018 and has enjoyed getting out there to teach any chance she gets.
When Kim is not on her mat, she is hiking, gardening, skiing, doing watercolor, tending to her chickens or having fun with her boys. She loves learning new things and enjoys traveling the world when she has the chance. Kim likes to bring yoga to everyone and especially enjoys working with beginners to help them feel empowered within their own yoga.
