Kimberly is a RYT200 Yoga Instructor specializing in Vinyasa, Buti Yoga, Merge: The Practice, and Yoga for Musicians. As a passion project, she runs a membership based online studio called The Aligned Musician where she offers free livestream classes to musicians and anyone wanting to deepen their yoga practice. She is one of the founding instructors of Yoga for All Musicians a virtual yoga studio catered towards the specific needs of musicians. Kimberly is also currently an Advanced Buti Instructor at B MVMNT in Scottsdale, AZ and is a Lead Yoga Instructor for Arizona State University’s Sun Devil Fitness Complex.
A violist and violinist, Kimberly is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree at Arizona State University and is a substitute violist with the Phoenix Symphony. Meeting Brianne Borden in Summer 2019, they created Movement for Musicians, a program aimed to provide musicians with education on functional anatomy and provide tools to avoid injury and overcome performance anxiety.
In 2009, while preparing for her Senior Recital and graduate school auditions, Kimberly developed tendinitis in her left shoulder. Finding a hot yoga studio nearby and dedicating herself to daily practice, she was able to recover much faster than her health care provider had predicted. Since then, Kimberly has been very interested in the mind-body connection and has explored a variety of exercise, martial arts, and yogic practices.
Kimberly uses her knowledge of anatomy and physiology in her approach toward teaching both music and yoga, and strongly believes that awareness is the key to improvement in any area of life. Her goals are to always expand her practice and share her love of yoga, music, and movement. As a Musician and Yoga Instructor, she often provides improvised live music during savasana.
