Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka Mat traveled around the world with me from Fiji to New Zealand, Bali, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Iceland and the East Coast before following me to my hometown of Seattle. It didn't matter where I went, when I rolled out my mat to practice I felt like I was home.

Kimberly Hooks, RYT-200, is a South Carolina native with a background in hatha yoga and a BS in Business Management from Coastal Carolina University. She began practicing yoga in 2002, initially drawn to the practice for the physical challenge, but she quickly discovered that yoga offered much more - a balance of mind, body, and spirit. Once she discovered the alignment principles of Anusara yoga, it quickly became one of her passions and set her on a new journey. She began studying with Stacey Millner-Collins and hasn’t looked back since. Kimberly now teaches Hatha Yoga with an Anusara influence and is working on an Anusara Inspired certification.
