Yoga Testimonials

Namaste (a Sanskrit term meaning the Light within Me honors the Light within You)...

Originating from India thousands of years ago, the word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root Yug, translating to yoke, spirit, union. Yoga involves a wide variety of disciplines and brings into union mind, body and spirit.

Each posture (asana) is designed to prepare the body for the one that follows. Yoga opens both the chakras and the muscular/skeletal system, stimulates the glandular system, and helps eliminate toxins to rebuild the body from old injuries.

With continued yoga practice, what once seemed purely physical slowly transforms the practitioner towards a metaphysical state of being. Kim's intention is to empower each student to discover the teacher within and that these classes transform your thoughts, actions and body from the inside out.

May the relief of laughter rinse through your soul.
As the wind loves to call things to dance,
May your gravity be lightened by grace.
As water takes whatever shape it is in,
So free may you be about who you become...."

John O'Donohue, Writer

Open Yoga   Meditation ~ Asana ~ Pranayama ~ Savasana
Open level classes are appropriate for all levels. The students' 'goal' in an open class is to take their practice level from where it is; into the beyond, by using modifications. This class is informed by several types of yoga and does not follow any one specific style. It is an exploration of the body using breathwork and heightened awareness that supports balance in the body. It encompasses the stength building and alignment of an Iyengar type approach (longer deep holds) balanced with a gentler Yin approach. Yin yoga asana is a releasing into your individual body structure and is less focused on an exact classical alignment. My philosophy is that yoga is not a competition with either ourselves or others. Other influences are flow (or Vinyasa) and several other types  of yoga.

"We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations..." Universal truth

What is a Vinyasa Class?
Kim teaches a strong and compassionate yoga that is challenging for advanced students and supportive for beginners. She is strongly influenced by Vinyasa, or a fluid asana practice that purifies, empowers and revitalizes through a creative blend that emphasizes the detail and therapeutic approach brought to us by Iynengar, the energizing merge of breath and challenging asana, influenced by the Ashtanga method and the inherent heart opening and compassion that is the result of any authentic yoga practice.

Vinyasa or "flow" yoga is one of the emerging forms of yoga in the West arising from Krishnamacharya's lineage of Ashtanga, Iyengar and Viniyoga. Vinyasa yoga is sequenced to bring balance between ease (sukha) and effort (sthira) while synchronizing the movement with the breath. The sequences of the yoga postures are both physically challenging and spiritually rejuvenating.

 “The Breath is the Movement of Spirit in the Body.” Dr. Andrew Weil
Private Yoga Instruction
Private Yoga Instruction is perfect for those new to yoga. Several yoga sessions can give you a basic foundation in alignment and breathe to enable you to safely participate in most beginner or intermediate yoga classes. Private yoga is also beneficial for those who want to deepen their practice or work toward rehabilitating injuries. Please contact Kim to discuss your unique situation and needs.

be a poem." actor David Carradine


New to Yoga?
Wear work-out clothing, a leotard or spandex shorts or pants, anything that stretches and keeps you covered. Bring a towel or yoga mat - Kim generally has several for sale.
Please eat at least 2 hours prior to class
As we say often when we teach that the most advanced yogi is the one who comes with a 'Beginner's Mind'... so, come just as you are.

  "True Understanding is found through Compassion"
Kim Hudson
About Kim Hudson
Kim is the daughter of a Hindu father and Christian Mother, and a long time student of diverse spiritual teachings and indigenous wisdom. She began practicing yoga shortly after an injury to her knee in 1988 left her unable to walk without a limp. The years since then, herbs, yoga, and an on-going personal evolution have helped sustain the work of an amazing surgeon. Kim now shares with others how to head toward finding their own balanced, authentic, self-honest and Joyful 'Middle Way'.

She saw how effective it was for people to begin to reclaim balance thru the simple practice of yoga. Kim recently moved from Cape Cod to the mountains. Her interests include Herbalism, simple natural living and animal health.

Yoga facilitates our inner teacher to wake up and 'help us out of our own way'. Of course, a strong and supple body are nice side effects, but what really happens is an unfolding of the spirit by learning to simply ‘Be in the moment’. Join Kim as her intuitive, compassionate, yet challenging approach helps you to relax, replenish and rebuild. Come feel wonderful and let the sacred happen.
Yoga practice brings balance and restores all bodily systems by creating physical, mental and spiritual harmony. Through regular practice, the asanas (postures) improves the heart, spleen, kidneys, liver, and intestines and strenghtens the ligaments, tendons, joints, and muscles.

The mind is also strengthened and regular practice helps to eliminate stress, depression, anxiety, and other mental afflictions. Yoga helps to calm the mind, quiet the brain's chatter, and deepens the relaxation response.

As we progress in our practice, we open ourselves up for a transformational experience. This is Kim's intention through KimsharYoga and Massage.

May the peace of the land be your body
May the peace of the sky be your mind
May the peace of the sea be your soul
