GENTLE YOGA ONLINE & IN PERSON (simultaneously 🙂 )
Wednesdays, 6 pm – 7:15 pm
Next Session: October 13 – December 22 (skipping 11/24)
Drop ins welcome. Pre-registration required for zoom, encouraged for in-studio (in-person folks need to be fully vaccinated and mask; space limited).
In-Studio: *studio update: all participants must mask in class as we follow CDC guidance* We meet in the beautiful Joy of Movement Studio and space will be limited to 11 fully vaccinated students for ample physical distancing. Students are encouraged to bring their own yoga mat, and, are able to use studio equipment (blocks, straps, bolsters). Please do not come to class if you are not feeling well or have been around someone who is ill. Arrive 5-10 minutes early to get settled for class to start at 6pm. Windows may be open and fans on for ventilation so please dress accordingly.
Livestream: If joining class online, please register below before 5pm to receive zoom link in time! When you register, I will send you the current week’s link along with details on navigating technology and creating a safer container for participants. Students log in 5-10 minutes before class to be sure I have time to admit you from the “waiting room”. After we have a brief welcome, you are free to turn off your video if that feels more comfortable (you can still see me but are not visible to other students during class).
Folks of all shapes, colors, orientations, and levels of experience are welcome*! These gentle classes support our resilience, steadiness, and connection as we navigate times of immense change and challenges. Kim facilitates a playful and mindful exploration of movement and breath, sharing stress-relieving tools that are easily integrated off the yoga mat. Together we’ll stretch, balance, strengthen, and rest.
*please note that NC-based Sanctuary in the City is offering free BIPOC-only yoga classes (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) if that would better support your wellness needs or you’d like to make a donation.

Great for families, pods, and neighbors. Contact Kim for rates and scheduling.
VIRTUAL WILD WALKABOUT
In Your Yarden via Video
30+ minute guided tour
Are you curious to know which plant and tree friends are growing around your yarden? And how to safely incorporate them into your life as wild food and medicine to nourish you (and your family, neighbors…)? Planty Kim joins you remotely via video (FaceTime, whatsapp, IG chat, zoom…) as you show her around your space. Our virtual visit can begin with 30 minutes (sliding scale $30-$50) with more time possible. Inquire about dates via email.
To celebrate my birthday, I invite folks to contribute towards my scholarship fund which allows me to provide access to classes for folks with limited financial resources. Thanks for helping me realize my vision of making wild food and medicine knowledge available for all! I’m so grateful (yep, that’s young Planty Kim showing my excitement) to my generous friends who have given over the last three years (amounts ranging from $5-$500)! Thanks to you, I’ve been able to share scholarship support with many eager students! Just click the yellow donate button at the bottom of this page…
