Kim became a Registered Yoga Teacher after graduating from DevaTree’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, and went on to complete The Mindful Mamas Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training with Lauryl Hicks, as well as her HeartRise Yoga for Children Teacher Training.

Kim is passionate about supporting women and their partners through pregnancy and childbirth and loves the creative energy and community that teaching prenatal yoga offers. She truly believes that it is through acceptance and positivity that women can find their strength and power in birth. Kim found yoga’s true bliss while pregnant with her first child, and has come full circle to now be able to share her knowledge and passion with teachers and moms-to-be! She combines her joyful sense of humour and playfulness with a profound belief in the strength of every woman. Her compassion for the changes pregnancy brings both emotionally and physically is the foundation for her challenging yet nurturing yoga experiences.
