"I was tired of feeling that I shouldn’t teach or take yoga classes because of my physical limitations, so I returned to the heart of the practice. What I found was a version of yoga that was sustainable and accessible for me. And something I didn’t expect -that I was able to cultivate a much more profound connection to myself and a deeper understanding of what yoga truly is: liberation."
Breathwork + Yoga
Hi! My name is Kim Hankins and I am a trauma-informed ryt500 yoga and breathwork facilitator.
I enjoy teaching a wide range of practices and offer challenging asana, relaxing yin, sound meditations, and live virtual breathwork circles.
I started practicing yoga about 14 years ago, and what was initially something I did to help me physically feel better in my body, became a central part of my life and identity. Yoga isn’t just a physical practice, it’s a spiritual, energy-focused, meditative, and liberating practice that can be practiced by anyone. My desire is to share the joy that is my yoga practice, and hope that it informs and inspires your own creative yoga experience.

I've attended Kimberly's workshops, yoga classes, and group breathwork sessions, and all have left me feeling more empowered. Her beautiful personality shines through, yet she is so sensitive to everyone's needs and circumstances. In just one breathwork session, I felt a complete shift in my mood and emotions, and I felt so incredibly supported. That feeling has lasted over a week since my session, and I'm excited to explore her breathwork sessions even more! I always come back to her yoga classes because they are so accessible and feel so safe. Her workshops are incredibly informative and enjoyable. I'm so thankful for the work Kim is doing!
Kimberly is a wonderful yoga instructor and musician. I consistently feel more free, open, and balanced after taking her classes.
Just did my first breathwork session with Kimberly - highly recommend it to anyone considering!! She is so amazing and I felt so comfortable with her! My mind feels clear and my body feels relaxed and rejuvenated after today’s practice.
I’ve tried yoga in the past and was never able to stick with it, but ever since I found Kimberly’s classes I’ve been hooked! As a musician, and more specifically a violinist, it really makes all the difference to have an instructor who knows exactly what you’re going through and creates a safe and relaxing space to practice. Highly recommend her, especially to fellow fiddlers!
Musicians, Kimberly is amazing and truly one of a kind. She has helped me so much and her wellness and yoga classes are truly beautiful. I really doubt I would be playing this comfortably if it weren't for her livestreams and classes.
I had a session with Kimberly to do breathwork. On a conscious level, it's very simple. All you have to do is breathe (and maybe let out a primal scream lol) but on an energetic level, it is essentially surgery for the soul. Kimberly made me feel so safe and supported while she held a space for kinda just WHATEVER to happen. It was so massively healing for me.
This breathwork session was a worthwhile experience for me and I look forward to incorporating breath work more in the future. I feel like it helped me connect to my deeper self and confront some hard truths and open myself up to confronting those. Looking forward to the next one!
