Kimberly Wyss Kimberly has been practicing yoga off and on for twelve years. Five years ago when her practice became more consistent, she became much more aware of the impact yoga has on the body and mind. During a challenging time in her life, she came across The Power Yoga Tribe and immediately felt at home. Preston and Christen Scott have been her yoga mentors throughout her journey. As a way to afford unlimited yoga and be more involved in the community, Kimberly started doing work exchange at PYT. She became a Certified Teacher’s Assistant in the spring of 2015, and started assisting a couple classes a week. She is currently in the process of completing her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification at PYT. Kimberly has noted that one of the biggest lessons yoga has taught her is how to experience ease. When she started to find ease on the mat, ease began to show up in her life and in her relationships. Kimberly’s classes incorporate strength and ease as she guides her students to let go of expectations and judgements and just be.
