Kim is a southern California native and is certified in both Massage Therapy and as an Iyengar Yoga Instructor. She has been massaging professionally for 11 years, and teaching yoga for 18 years.
Kim is a graduate of IPSB, International Professional School of Bodywork. She has also studied at PCOM, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, and has attended numerous in-depth bodywork trainings.
With the help of modalities such as circulatory massage, deep tissue sculpting, neuromuscular therapy, tui na, acupressure, prenatal/perinatal, cranial sacral, manual lymph drainage, oncological sensitivity, and somatic emotional/relational training, Kim brings a well-rounded and deep tool bag to the table.
Kim began studying Yoga in 1997, and yogic practices and philosophy serve as a core foundation for all the work she does. However, after ten years of intensive study she felt the need to experience and study the healing potential of touch.
San Diego has a rich history of pioneering bodyworker teachers and she is very grateful to have been able to study with many of them. By receiving the teachings and touch of many skilled practitioners, she has come to find a deep appreciation for the efficacy and potential for change that touch invites.
Iyengar Yoga also has a rich history in San Diego and Kim has been blessed to have studied extensively with local senior level teachers for over 20 years. She has also been to India numerous times to study with the Iyengar Family. Yoga is a vast subject and the Iyengar method is the approach Kim takes with Asana and Pranayama, in particular. Kim is also a student of Vedanta, Tantra, Sanskrit.
Mostly, Kim is interested in sharing whatever she can to help soothe that which can and needs to be soothed while also encouraging change and growth in whatever ways best serve the client. I look forward to seeing you on the table, and occasionally on the mat!
