Kim encourages each student to safely befriend their bodies in a variety of yoga classes. She facilitates by creating a safe environment which carries over to:
Honoring your body in authentic ways
Openness to self care of your body through grace and compassion
Present moment experiences with your body that are safe and in your control.
Empowerment found from the inside out that can be experienced on your yoga mat through personal choice making, and perhaps carried over into your everyday life.
"Through yoga I have found restored hope. Some days my hope is just a tiny spark, other days like when I come to yoga it swells up inside of me and I feel safe enough to daydream again." Misty class participant

There are two things that I have been an admirer of and collected all of my life. They are the simplest of things, shells and rocks! Ask those that know me. There is something magically transforming emotionally and in my well-being when I encounter them. The excitement, the interaction with my senses, imagination, a felt joy and a desire to share my treasure and experience with family and friends.
A few years ago I was on a hike with my family and there was a light mist coming down dampening the rocks. That is when I saw the most beautiful colored rock I had ever seen! I immediately fell in love and of course decided to bring the rock home to my garden. The rock was quite heavy but I was determined! With a sore back and dirt all over my rain coat I made it to the car with my rock in tow. Once home I found the perfect place for my new beauty and decided to weigh it before placing the rock in it’s new home. To my astonishment the rock weighed in at 50 pounds! Guess I was determined to bring it home and it also explained why my back hurt!
There is something so beautiful and pure in these treasure that connects me to simple and reflective moments of joy, love, happiness, gratitude deep down in my being. Collecting these special gems often lifts my spirits, changes my thoughts, and connects my mind and body in new more focused ways. I feel made new from withIN. To me that is what mindfulness is all about. Hence the birth of our NEW Mindfulness &Kindness Rock class.
Come and grab a rock and spend 30 minutes exploring and sharing in the intention based practice of Mindfulness and simple Yoga. Plan to keep your chosen rock with you for the duration of class to allow your mind and body to FEEL and EXPERIENCE the message on your rock.
Our 30 minute shared experience will focus withIN YOU as we practice action oriented mindfulness techniques for our minds and gentle yoga forms to join our mind and body experiences of hope, joy, gratitude and so much more.
After class you can take your rock with you as a reminder of your class experience, leave your rock for someone else, or this is the fun part take your rock and SHARE it somewhere or give it to someone as simple gesture of Kindness.
Class begins February 6th!
