About The Teacher
Kim is dedicated to practicing and teaching yoga. She encourages students to find their internal strength and lightness in their practice in a safe and compassionate way. Kim encourages her students to move the energy in their body with the breath, allows for moments of stillness, and compassionately provides opportunities for students to step out of the comfort zone while guiding an energetic class filled with positive energy. She is passionate about the benefits of yoga to heal the mind, body, and soul. Kim strives to make every breath count on and off the mat while encouraging a positive sense of community.
Kim Chavez began to deepen her physical practice of yoga not too long ago. Having been a counselor, she understands the importance of being able to find stillness in the mind and be in the present moment in order to respond to life. Kim decided to immerse herself in the practice of yoga and yoga became her passion. For her, it just made sense to share her passion and love for yoga with others. In 2011, she received her 200 hr. teacher training certification at LifePower Yoga in Scottsdale, AZ and her 500 hour certification at Dave’s Astanga Yoga in 2013. Filled with gratitude for the opportunity to be guided by amazing teachers as Dave and Cheryl Oliver, John Salisbury, Anton Mackey and Jenn Chiarelli Kim continues to be as much of a student as a teacher.
