After over a year without a massage I am so very glad to have gone to Shanti Living this week. Kym was awesome. thank you so much, Kelly
The experience of working with many age groups and fitness levels has led her to become more in-tune with her yoga participants. Participants are encouraged to honor their bodies during their own practice. Options for variety in poses are offered, allowing the poses to work for each individual. She has learned that the fast paced fitness mentality of, “more and harder is better” is not always beneficial for the body. Moderation, breathing, listening to the body, meditation and ‘just being’ are so much more beneficial
