Kim Candika Hall
RYT 200; Senior Teacher; Member
Thanks for taking a moment to meet Kim Candika Hall! Like her, you’re probably interested in ways to feel better, uplifted and empowered. In addition to traditional yoga and meditation, Kim has found so many ways to practice “yoga” in unconventional ways, which has been one of the greatest gifts she received from this practice. Learning and embodying the wisdom of yoga comes through in how she practices art, in how she navigates relationships, and in the way she plays, dances and interacts with the world.
Kim is one of Kashi's Senior Yoga Teachers and has been teaching both yoga and meditation in public, private and corporate settings since 2004. Her personal style of teaching is centered around cultivating the mind-body-spirit connection, while offering fun and approachable sequencing with the goal of being inclusive to all bodies. In her classes she offers guidance in mindfulness, how to refine your postural alignment, employs her favorite therapeutic techniques, and shares how to harness the power of the yogic breath and meditation. It is her desire to always strike a balance between effort and ease and have people leave their practice with a greater sense of their Self.
In 1998 she met her spiritual teacher, Swami Jaya Devi, graduated from Kashi Atlanta's first 200-Hour Classical Yoga Teacher Training in 2004 and was invited to begin co-teaching the training in 2007. From there she had the opportunity to mentor many of Kashi Atlanta’s teacher training students over the years.
In 2010, Kim expanded her training by completing Anusara Yoga’s 100-hour immersion, then went on to complete part one of the Anusara 200-hour teacher training in 2011. Through the years, Kim's study of yoga philosophy also deeply expanded. She has led a study group on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, offered many workshops and class series on meditation and co-taught a course about the Bhagavad Gita. Kim is steadfast in the perspective that she is forever a student of these incredible teachings and experiences, which continue to unfold and inform her role as student and teacher.
