As a native Bay Area, Californian, outdoor activities were instilled at a young age and fortified through many organized and extreme sports over the years. Graduating from UC Berkeley, Kim was exposed to the benefits of Yoga and shifted from a background of dance to yoga, which she has practiced for twenty-five years. Hours of competitive bike racing and triathlons deepened her need to bring more yoga to help balance her body and mind. Kim has found the positive impact of the physical and mental benefits of yoga and works to share and teach to college athletes as a Sports Performance Yoga and Stretch Coach.
