"Yoga Kim" Vulinovic
"Yoga Kim" grew up climbing trees, roller skating and riding her bike in the hills of Pennsylvania. In her early adult life, she was a fashion designer in Manhattan and a serious modern dance student. She and her husband raised their two daughters and now enjoy the life of empty nester s in Oak Park. Beginning her yoga practice in 1996 after the birth of her youngest daughter, Kim was surprised to find that yoga helped, not only her physical body, but all aspects of her life. Looking for a career that would balance her family life and include her love of movement, art and children, she became a Certified YogaKids Teacher in 2001. She also holds an E200hour Yoga Teacher designation through Yoga Alliance , teaching alignment based, gentle flow classes to adults. You can see "Yoga Kim" biking around Oak Park as she brings fitness, fun and focus to her community.
In addition to her children's classes, Kim facilitate all the Mid-West YogaKids International 's teacher trainings, leading a new generation of thoughtful, compassionate adults toward full YogaKids Certification.
