Kim Wilcox knows of yoga’s power to change lives. Yoga has helped Kim to make a series of transformative decisions that have propelled her along a healing life path. She is therefore truly excited about yoga’s potential to enhance the lives of her students - to help them find joy, meaning, and purpose. Kim believes that yoga is a tool to help us spread our wings and discover our Dharma, our Souls’ purpose here on Earth.
Kim teaches that yoga is much more than asana (postures) - it is a series of ancient philosophical and spiritual practices that we apply to our daily lives. Yoga is not something we do, rather it is a state of being; a state of being in Union with ourselves, with others, and with Truth. The yogic practices help us to remember our oneness with Truth.
In her classes, Kim offers a practice that includes alignment-based asana in a slow-flowing style that guides students toward improved awareness and inner reflection. Chant, pranayama (breathing techniques) and short meditations are also used in class to regulate the flow of Prana (Universal Life Force) and create a more balanced heart and mind.
Kim began practicing yoga in 1998 and began teaching yoga in 2000. Her first teacher training was with Ana Forrest, who taught her to be true to her authentic self and to follow her spirit without fear. Later, the heart-opening beauty of Anusara Yoga had a strong influence on her practice. And, most recently, Tias Little, Rod Stryker, and Aadil Palkhivala are the master teachers she chooses to study with.
In 2002-2003, Kim spent six months in Asia. She studied Thai Massage and meditation in Thailand, yoga asana, theory, philosophy and yoga therapy at both the Atman Vikasa in Mysore, India and the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, India. Trekking through the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal, one of Nature’s most awe-inspiring miracles, also brought amazing insight to Kim’s life and to her teaching.
