Starting September 24th, Kim Austin-Peterman will be teaching a new class for mamas and their toddlers ages 1-3.
Zizu II will be a class where toddlers ages 1-3 have an isolated but common space to play with each other while mamas practice yoga.
The yoga will be open to beginners and cater to many needs specific to parents. We will be serious about therapeutic values but always ready to get silly!
Join us on Mondays 10:45-11:45am.
New to the studio?...Your first class is free, so come check it out sometime!
About the instructor
Kim Austin Peterman CMT, RYT 500, is the co-owner and co-creator of The Space Above Yoga Center. Kim not only appreciates the daily reminders yoga brings to who she is, but also considers the incredible influence it brings to her family. Raising her two children, daughter Josie and son Hobie, with the principles and understanding of Sankhya philosophy, Yoga and Ayurveda is how she consistently contributes back into the world. It is her goal to forward deeply her personal devotion to yoga, and equally important for her to share, on any level, the gift of yoga with others. Kim believes that by planting even the smallest of seeds to even the smallest of insights, is giving back on a Universal level. Until there are more people living a balanced, happy life then there are NOT, Kim believes there is work for her to be done. By working with people in several different capacities she feels there are more opportunities for them to shift and open up to a better life. Her nine years experience as a massage therapist is only complimentary to her abilities as a yoga teacher and Ayurvedic Practitioner. Kim has been practicing and studying yoga for seven years and has successfully completed both the 200 hour and 500 hour level of teacher training with well respected teacher Anna Pittman. At this level she is certified and registered (500RYT) with the National Yoga Alliance. Kim has also experienced profound influences studying under various Master level teachers such as Aadil Palkivala and Sarah Powers. She is currently working to complete 500 hours of study in Ayurveda to become a practitioner of this cosmic science. She will be certified by Emerson Theological Institute and the Dhanvantari Ayurvedic Center, after finishing her studies with teacher Vijaya Stallings sometime in early 2008. She plans to blend today's more modern lifestyle with the ancient wisdom of Vedic philosophy, by cultivating more interest and effort towards each. With this interest and more understanding, she hopes that the nature of an Ayurvedic lifestyle can become more available to the Western mind. Kim has also extended her yoga studies and teachings to infants, toddlers and children. She is trained and certified in the Internationally known Itsy Bitsy Yoga Program. Kim humbly and thankfully appreciates that her abilities and offerings as a mother, teacher and therapist are ultimately gifts of a divine nature.
