Divine sleep Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that systematically guides and relaxes you at every level of being including your physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual layers (called the five koshas). Through the use of breath awareness, body scanning, healing music and nature imagery, Divine Sleep invites you to become aware of each layer of being without needing to change or fix anything. This is true meditation where there is nothing to do but ‘notice’ – supporting you in feeling empowered and whole just the way you are. This contemporary practice is based on ancient yogic wisdom and meditation to make a powerful tool for modern day life.
Kim began practicing yoga in 2009. In 2011, she earned her 200 hour yoga teacher certification from master teacher and author Rolf Gates. She has a strong personal practice which includes both the physical and spiritual components of yoga. Kim believes that anyone can do yoga and that everyone benefits, both physically and mentally, from a consistent practice. She appreciates all styles of yoga, but is mostly drawn to the Ashtanga method, which creates strength and flexibility while cultivating a quiet and peaceful mind. With a strong focus on alignment, Kim’s Vinyasa classes are firmly rooted in the Ashtanga tradition. Kim’s workshops and trainings include time spent with: David Swenson, Rolf Gates, Richard Faulds, Jonathan Faust, Carolyn Sundeen, Jacqui Bonwell, Sharon Saltsberg, Krishna Das and Stephen Cope. Kim is also a Level I & Level II Certified Usui Reiki Practitioner and loves the opportunity she has to help others heal their bodies and minds through the practice of yoga and meditation.
