Kim Gold is the co-founder of Still Mind Yoga and has been teaching yoga since 2009. She teaches open level classes that focus on the experience of the present moment through physical postures and breathing. Her classes are accessible for day one beginners as well as seasoned practitioners. Her hope is that students feel stronger, calmer, and better able to cope with the stresses of life through the practice of yoga.
Kim first discovered yoga as a teenager back in the mid 1980s and returned to it more seriously as an adult. After exploring many paths toward healing, she has found the combination of movement and breath to be the most powerful and profound. She was certified through Atmananda Yoga in New York City and Mark Whitwell's Heart of Yoga training, and is also trained to teach children's yoga and special needs yoga. Kim has a long history of martial arts training, including Aikido, kung fu, and Brazilian jiu jitsu. Her Still Mind sequence incorporates elements from varied traditions, and emphasizes simple and slow movements centered on the breath.
Kim also teaches private yoga sessions.
In Kim's free time, she enjoys making collages.
Still Mind Sequence - Open Level - Kim
In this slow, breath centered class you will quiet your mind and strengthen your body. The focus is on developing greater body/breath awareness, developing a sense of self-compassion, and allowing a space for relaxation and release. Students are encouraged to honor their bodies and practice at a pace that is comfortable to them. Modifications of poses are given. The sequence of postures stays relatively consistent to quiet the discursive mind and promote relaxation. All levels are welcome.
Still Mind Martial Arts and Yoga is operated by Integrated Peace Arts, and nonprofit 501 (c) (3) corporation. Financial information may be available at Guidestar & the NYS Charities Bureau.
