Three years ago Kim felt that it was time to inspire others on a global level to broaden the reach of ISM. At first, she ignored this calling and now she embraces it with open arms. It all started with one of Kim’s war council friends (You know those close friends you don’t need a mirror with because they provide it for you.) who opened up her little black book of travel friends. Kim has been to Ometepe Island in Nicaragua where she taught yoga to veterinarians, there on a service trip to provide veterinary care in rural Nicaragua. Not only did Kim teach yoga, she learned about the culture, volunteered to help care for the large animals, and learned how collecting local non-organic waste was used to build schools. She was welcomed by a small community of 3k on Mitkof Island in Alaska where she taught on yoga and the art of emotions. Kim taught yoga throughout her stay there she also participated in several radio shows as well. During her stay in beautiful Petersburg, Alaska she learned about the profound stillness and the need to stay present, to question what you see and think to gain more clarity. Her next adventure is the El Camino Northern Way.
