Kim has been an active youth instructor and coach for almost 10 years. In 2003 when she started her family, her passion for keeping her own kids healthy and active in the form of play came through strong. After attending many typical kids programs with her own children, she decide there had to be something more inclusive that a child of any age, any ability could participate in. “ I can tell you I had no intention of ever opening my own studio. I just thought I could teach a few classes here and there to help out a small select group of kiddos.” After a very short time at a local indoor sports facility, Kim became known as “Coach Kim” and the go-to instructor when working with individuals of all ages, all abilities. Her ability to teach inclusively set her apart from all other programs in the market. When a need was presented, she found a space of her own and WiggleKids® Inc was born. It was a place where she could teach programs such as Drums Alive®, Creative Relaxation®, WiggleTots, Fitness Trampolining and more to individuals of all ages, all abilities. On her journey, she became a certified Youth Fitness Instructor/Trainer from the International Sports & Science Association. From there she continued her education with Drums Alive® and Creative Relaxation® and became the first Drums Alive® Master Trainer to certify instructors in Ability Beats as well as becoming the first Master Trainer that Creative Relaxation® has ever had. Kim is also certified Zumbini® instructor and a certified Laughter Yoga® leader.
The education Kim has received in the yoga community really brings her skill set full circle for her work here at the Nest. She graduated in 2018 from the 200 hour Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training at Tenth Gate under Reinette Fournier, Thomas Speare and guest instructors Hari Kaur Khalsa (co-founder of Hari NYC), Guru Singh ( LA) and Master Teacher Yogi Amandeep Singh. She is also assisting Reinette in the current 2018-2019 Kundalini Teacher Training.
Kim is also a Reiki Master Teacher and in addition to teaching yoga and cardio drumming at the Nest, she still holds an advisory position on the board of WiggleKids® Inc and facilitates Drums Alive® Instructor Trainings, Creative Relaxation® Level 1 Instructor Trainings and Reiki Certification courses from First Degree to Master Teacher Level. She offers private Reiki sessions to individuals at the studio, specifically those with autism/anxiety and or sensory processing disorders. She lives in Somerset, Ma with her husband Steven and three daughters, Madison, Alessandra and Katelyn.
