I have worked with Kim on and off for almost 6 years.  I have issues with arthritis in my knees mainly, and was finding I was not able to do some of the poses in a regular class.  I was interested to find out how things could be modified so that there was less pressure on trouble joints. - Calgary, AB

Therapeutic Yoga for Arthritis - Why It Works

Many yoga classes are not a perfect fit for those living with arthritis or chronic pain; they offer no variations or are too fast paced.  Someone living with arthritis ends up feeling frustrated at not being able to keep up, sees little improvement, may injure themselves, or may even feel an increase in their pain and stiffness. 

Instead of a 'one size fits all' approach, Kim offers several options catered to your needs and goals.

  1. Personalized Yoga Therapy is an exclusive private program designed specifically to address your goals, body, lifestyle, and mental wellbeing.  Clients who chose this option are highly committed to themselves and are self-motivated to do whatever it takes to make a change in their lives. 
  2. Kim's Happy Joints weekly group classes are the perfect option if you would like to gain support from others living with arthritis.  Clients who chose classes are ready to commit to 'me time" every week and enjoy a group-learning environment.  
  3. Therapeutic workshops are immersion sessions where you can jump-start your way to feeling better.  Perfect for those who want to try out Kim's teaching.  
  4. Plus NEW for 2014: The Happy Joints Yoga for Arthritis Handbook.  Finally a book made especially for those living with arthritis.  












The Client

Testimonials: Read what Kim's client's are saying..

 

"Kim is very knowledgeable, set up a program to meet my specific needs and fitness level and explained the poses well and was very willing to answer my million questions.  Also, I have seen improvements in my other areas of fitness from just a few suggestions she made during a session."

"The program Kim designed for me was perfect for my needs and allowed for me to follow it independently."

"Kim really took the time to listen to me and answer my questions."

"I very much appreciate the attention to detail Kim exudes, her ability to communicate, to build rapport by designing a program more closely matching my needs and by making adjustments as required.  I feel I'm in able hands.  As so, I feel better able to trust in the process of being in tune with my body and recovery.  I have gained much from my sessions with Kim, learning to relax was welcomed and had never been easy for me to maintain before.  I feel the foundation of simple yet intense poses or stretches I have now learned will enhance my well being.  I could not have been more lucky to have crossed paths with Kim and at a more difficult time health-wise in my life.  Kim is patient, kind, attentive, and intuitive."     

"I have recommended Kim already and plan to in the future for sure.  She has made a big difference with my yoga."
