Kim Goyette is a yogini, mother and lover of life. She began her yogic journey in 2006 when she was searching for balance while working in an extremely stressful position in corporate America. Her love of yoga grew as her personal practice provided a powerful way to rejuvenate her energy and nourish herself. Her positive experience motivated her to share these meaningful tools with others by becoming a yoga teacher.
Kim has her Masters in Exercise Science from Texas State University, has completed her 200-hour yoga certification and has studied and practiced meditation for the past ten years. She has been teaching corporate, private and public yoga classes and retreats for over seven years.

She believes everyone comes from a place of wholeness and encourages students to have acceptance, compassion and loving-kindness toward themselves and others. Kim supports an integrated experience by guiding asana from the foundation of breath incorporating practices of pranayama, mantra, mudra, meditation, and personal ritual.
Kim enjoys teaching Hatha, Hatha Flow and Yin yoga, where students have the opportunity to venture deeper into the mind-body connection. She provides individual adaptations for postures to ensure practicing yoga is accessible and safe for all whom she teaches.

Yogic Blindfold Dancing – Kim Goyette
In every culture from the beginning of time, our ancestors have used dance to connect with nature, connect with themselves and call on the support from energies around them to bring wisdom, prosperity, health and good fortune into their lives. Yogic trance dance enables us to connect with our primal life force and release things that block us from living the full expression of our lives. It’s an incredible way to draw prosperity, freedom and balance into our lives. Yogic dance is a tool that uses four elements to open up and access our inner vision. Through music, movement and rhythm, breath work and darkness we can tap into our divine wisdom and experience deep connection with ourselves. This workshop is 1.5 hours. Price is $35 (or $80 total for all four workshops).
