Stepping out of her comfort zone has softened her anxieties and helped her feel centered and grounded, bringing peace and happiness within. In June 2017 Kim graduated from the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training under the tutelage of Jessica Proulx at The OM Center. Filled with gratitude for her supportive community, Kim teaches from an open heart and with the confidence that yoga has gifted her. Kim lives in Oakville with her 3 children and cat Willow.
