Kim began her physical training at the age of six with her first gymnastics class and has been studying movement ever since. She earned her Pilates certification in NYC from Master Instructor Romana Kryzanowska, a direct protégé of Joseph Pilates.  Also certified through Power Pilates, she studied extensively with Bob Liekens and regularly assisted Jennifer Kries with teacher-training seminars.  Kim is currently featured in Jennifer’s DVD series entitled Hot Body/Cool Mind. One of the first to bring Pilates to the mainstream, students filled her classes at Equinox Health Club, New York University, and the Time/Life Company, among others.  After moving from New York City to San Francisco to perform with Flyaway Productions, an aerial dance company, Kim continued teaching a full clientele that included the San Francisco Ballet.  In addition to teaching athletes from the NBA, Kim is the proud owner of the only custom made Gratz reformer capable of training clients in excess of seven foot tall. She has studied Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Biomechanics with Irene Dowd and Jean-Claude West.  Her teaching is further informed by her professional career with The Mark Morris Dance Group, her study of yoga, her marathon training, and her adventures on the flying trapeze.  Kim’s philosophy is to empower her students to create change, and to always believe in the possibility of a positive outcome.
