Kim started practicing yoga to help heal a repetitive motion injury in her wrist. She found that she really enjoyed yoga. Practicing yoga gave her a more positive outlook and opened up opportunities to connect with herself and others.
To study yoga in depth, Kim enrolled in the 500 hour teacher training program at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco. She completed this program and also participated in the teacher training program at Iyengar Yoga South Bay. Kim is thankful for being able to attend an intensive with Mr. Iyengar at Estes Park in 2005 and an IYNAUS convention with Geeta Iyengar in 2007. Kim became a certified Iyengar teacher in 2015.Kim hopes to make the benefits and knowledge that she has gained through yoga accessible to new students. She likes to teach a class that is gentle, welcoming, and fun.
Kim is so very grateful to her teachers, Jito Yumibe and Nora Burnett. She humbly thanks Marla Apt for many hours of teacher training at Iyengar Yoga South Bay. She is also very thankful to the teachers, staff, and fellow students at Iyengar Yoga South Bay and the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco.
