MEET KIM SPEAR
In a world that places so many demands on us (physical, emotional, social, cultural, financial, etc) we inevitably need to gather ourselves. Yoga offers us ways to breathe more deeply, see more clearly and become more mindful. In this wild world of ours, my mat is where I begin my simplification/reunification process. The practice of cultivating a relationship between body and mind, mind and breath, breath and present moment awareness has been a source of stability and anchoring in my daily life.
I graduated from the Open Doors 200hr teaching training program in 2005 and the RYS 500hr program through Sacred Seeds Yoga School with my teacher, Jacqui Bonwell, in 2015.
I am forever grateful to the practice of yoga, and the teachers and students that continually inspire me. I am also honored to be the Mama of three beautiful babes who have challenged me to put my yoga practice to use on a daily basis.
For the past 16 years I have taught from a place of knowing that we are all students in our Yoga practice and in our lives. I have my Level 2 Balanced Athlete (TM) Certification, Yin & Meditation Certification, Yoga Nidra Certification, and have been lucky enough to assisted my teacher, Jacqui Bonwell, for over 7 years at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Healing in Lenox, MA. I am a regular teacher for the empowerHER program for girls without Mom’s & regularly teach YoungYogis classes for pre-teens and teens.
My classes have a strong emphasis on alignment, breath, inner awareness and mindful movement. I would love to share the practice with you.
