ABOUT KIM CORNELL: YOGA INSTRUCTOR
I completed my 200 Hour Teacher Training at the Shala in 2012, training in Vinyassa style yoga. (Sequencing poses in a special way)
I have also attended many Iyengar workshops, fine tuning alignment of poses. I enjoy teaching creatively sequenced classes, mixing in an energetic flow with holding and deepening poses.
I always start my classes with deep stretches and warmups of the areas of the body we will focus on,
and then we work up to a peak pose.
I have a focus each week on a particular area of the body, which relates to emotional release in that area. I use yoga as a tool to bring inner awareness, and allow suppressed emotions to surface, so that they can be processed and let go of, if willing.
Releasing tension in our muscles and tissue/fascia through our yoga practice, helps to clear our body/"temple" of physical toxins, and also clear emotional blockages, on a deeper level.
Bringing lightness into blocked areas of our body, helps us on our path of spiritual transformation by shifting behavioral patterns that hold us back.
The yoga brings us to a place of inner stillness, beyond our minds, where we can access our hearts, and allow the healing to happen. Some breathing/ pranayama practice at the beginning or end of a class, takes us further inwards where our inner guidance resides, connecting to our Higher Self.
