Kim McNeil is a freckled, Montreal-born gal who discovered yoga after her competitive swimming career came to an end. After retiring from the sport, Kim tried kickboxing, karate, and knitting but nothing seemed to fill the gap. As a last resort, she took her first yoga class in 1998. The rest as they say is history. With over 10 years of experience, she specializes in demystifying yoga and helping her students become comfortable with it regardless of their yoga experience. She works with those living with pain, injury, arthritis, and those with more specific needs and goals. Her multi-disciplinary approach to yoga therapy helps her clients manage their chronic pain, stress, and mobility issues. The result is a huge improvement in their quality of life which includes getting back to doing the things they love.
Causes close to her heart are Cancervive, The Arthritis Society, Power of Movement, and Yoga Thrive. Most importantly, Kim believes yoga can help anyone feel better and live a happier life.
