Kim first found her love for Pilates in 2003 as a tool to manage chronic lower back pain. She had almost instant relief and missing a week or two of her Pilates practice made clear the affect it was having. The physical and mental challenge from Pilates helps someone with a busy mind and busy life stay grounded. Pilates also played an instrumental part in life both during and after her two pregnancies, as it helped retain fitness. 

Kim began attending sessions at Pilates on 10th in 2006 and found the instructors to be well trained and challenging, all while making participation fun. In 2015 she decided to become certified, and to deepen her own practice. 

The hard work with Amie Baca paid off. Kim became a certified Level 1 instructor in Peak Pilates® and has taught a weekly Mat Class at a studio in Mukilteo, Washington. She plans on taking Levels II and III shortly.

She firmly believes that the benefits of Pilates are real and can be achieved by anyone at any level of fitness. She looks forward to sharing her passion and knowledge of Pilates with others.
