KIM SPEAR, CORE INSTRUCTOR
We live in a world that places so many demands on us, physically, emotionally, socially, culturally, financially, etc. and in turn we can end up feeling fragmented and fragile. The practice of yoga offers us ways to become still and acknowledge all parts of ourselves, our pain and our resilience, our failures and our successes, our fears and our bravery with an open heart and in turn see these same things in others. Yoga is, as its name translates, is a reunification practice which cultivates a relationship between body and mind, mind and breath, breath and present moment awareness and it 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 Jacqui Bonwell, in 2015. I have my Level 2 Balanced Athlete (TM) Certification, Yin Yoga & Meditation Certification, Yoga Nidra Certification, and Kids Yoga Certification.
