Kimber Baird

My name is Kimber I enjoy yoga very much so I traveled to India to study yoga @ its roots in 2012. I taught my first yoga class in India on the early morning of July 8th, 2012 in Surya Hall. We had two yoga rooms I was lottery picked to teach on the day my dad died years ago. My class was peaceful and healing the birds were singing and the sun was just beginning to shine. That evening my friends class was during a monsoon. That’s how quickly the weather changes in India. I have been teaching for seven years now. My school is an international yoga school RYS Rishikesh Yog Peeth. This picture was taken close to my school in Rishikesh at a local restaurant in India. Of course I went to India for the training of yoga but also for the experience of the culture and the wonderful spicy flavorful art of Indian Food. I have my 200 hour international certification and am registered with yoga alliance. I enjoy being creative and fun in my classes ,I teach yoga basics to a flowing vinyasa . I also teach yin/restore. My yoga classes begin with a great warm up and end with a relaxing savasana. I am a mother and grandmother. I work in my community as a Kitchen Manager in the Snohomish School District and Teach Yoga After School.

What started as an exploratory class in college quickly blossomed into a daily practice.   Yoga has made me stronger physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  It has prepared my body and seen me safely through five pregnancies.  Yoga has revitalized my body during times of debilitating suffering due to chronic illness. It has lifted my spirits and reminded me to breathe when nothing else could.  My passion for yoga led me to become certified at the 200 level through yogaspirit® Studios.  What I love most about yoga is that it is a never-ending journey, with continual opportunities to delve deeper into the practice.  I plan on continuing my studies to become a Yoga Therapist.  I live in Lake Stevens with my husband, 5 children, numerous pets and love enjoying all the outdoor activities the PNW has to offer.

I began taking yoga classes 18 years ago to learn a new exercise that would be more kind to my injured knees. I developed my physical practice for several years before discovering the meditative quality of yoga. Once I truly discovered my belly breath, I was able to quite my mind and I fell in love with the peace it brought and continues to bring me. In the last year I have been learning more about the philosophical and spiritual side of yoga which has advanced my practice and meditation. My class aims to bring calmness and clarity to mind and body through use of deep breathing and slow flowing sequences. We will take time to breath into the poses and follow our bodies natural movements to our next pose. There is some heat building but our primary focus is moving with our breath and honoring our personal practice and our time on the mat. Yoga is a beautiful, healing practice and my goal is to: connect people to the place where that healing can begin.

Like many yoga newbies, I initially took up my hatha practice as a component of a weight-loss strategy, nearly 20 years ago. But my continued devotion to yoga is rooted in my continuing discovery and exploration of the practice’s ancient spiritual and philosophical teachings, which fit perfectly with the modern mindfulness movement. My classes include yin sessions, exploring simple mindfulness and breath techniques while we gently stretch our connective tissues, as well as classic hatha classes. I teach a hatha style called Karuna, which is a blend of Iyengar, yin, anusara, flow and kundalini styles. Karuna is Sanskrit for “compassion,” and this style is based on the concept that yoga should never be painful or uncomfortable. I taught yoga at Everett Community College from 2015 through 2018, finding fun and relevant ways to share the ancient mental-health teachings of 8 Limbs yoga in the guise of a modern gym class. I have teaching certifications from the American Yoga School and Creative Source Alliance, wellspring of the karuna style of the late Paul MacNaughton.

A mat if you have one or show up and use ours. Water is always a good idea, but we have you covered there too. Some students bring a towel for the more energetic classes. An attitude of gratitude and a willingness to honor your body and trust yourself! Go with your own flow!

How Many Times Per Week Should I Practice?

Yoga is amazing. Even if you only practice for one hour a week, you will experience the benefits of the practice. If you can do more than that, you will certainly experience more benefits.

Is this "HOT" yoga?

No. The studio is warm and you will generate some heat in most classes, but this is definitely not considered "HOT" yoga.
