Dr. Maria Kim, a dentist in Arcadia, began her yoga practice in 2011 after years of neck and back pain along with a sciatic nerve inflammation. There was significant improvement in pain management after a few months. She also found herself less grouchy. She was so amazed by the difference she immediately pursued her 500 hour yoga training at Yogablend and Yoga Madre in 2012 and 2013. As a yoga teacher, she encourages and respects the unique abilities of each student. Her classes emphasize the fun and the foundations of the practice. She would like to thank all the teachers of Yoga Madre and especially René Quenell for her wisdom, sincerity, and constant generosity. She would also thank her family, their support has made all things possible.
