Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

I love Manduka's Mats! I use both the black mats that I keep at home for my Husband and I and the purple travel Mats that I keep in the car to go travel to the studios with. I have let my students borrow my purple mat sometimes when i see them struggling, slipping and sliding with their own. They buy one immediately after that. Thank you Manduka!!

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.
