Kim has been active in a wide variety of sports all of her life, having played softball and basketball in junior college. It was being a college athlete that lead her to discover sports medicine as a profession. She went on to earn a B.S. in sports medicine and exercise physiology from Bowling Green State University and a M.S. in public health and wellness from the University of Kentucky. Having an education in sports medicine and working as an athletic trainer gives her a unique perspective about how yoga benefits your overall health as well as the specific effects on your muscles and joints.
An avid runner and competitive tennis player Kim struggled with a reoccurring hamstring injury about 5 years ago. This injury lead her to the mat which provided the strength and healing she needed to continue her active lifestyle.
Kim recently obtained her 200RYT certification by studying under Allison Foreacre from Yoga Den in Jacksonville. With her knowledge in anatomy and physiology, and her passion for seeing others achieve their body-health goals, Kim is excited to be apart of the Yoga Central team. She is so excited about helping others to overcome injury or just simply achieve their fitness goals.
