Owner of Breathe Salt Yoga Kim is ecstatic to share her passion for yoga.  You can find her practicing on land or at sea.  One of her favorite quotes  is by Bernie Clark “Use the postures to get into the body. Do not use your body to get into the postures. “

Kim feels yoga is a sacred tool that teaches us how to connect with body, mind and breathe.  Most importantly it teaches how to flow through life gracefully.  She  believes yoga helps us find that natural current within ourselves that radiates love and light.   Kim is certified in Kundalini and draws inspiration from many teachers.  She is an E-RYT teaching yoga since 2005.   Kim’s classes inspire, connect and motivate students to be aware of a connection with nature and the natural rhythms of our planet and the elements. She blends Kundalini within her vinyasa and yin teachings.    She is a mother of two beautiful daughters and married 18 years.    Kim helps guide people to tap into their inner fire so they can burn bright instead of burning out.
