Yuka Kris Kim (Yuka. K)


Yuka was born in Osaka, Japan and moved to US at age 15.  She has traveled all over the world learning a lot of life lessons from different cultures and different people.  She had once lived in Aruba and it was an amazing eye-opening experience for her.  She was introduced to Bikram Yoga in 2011 as a part of rehabilitation after the car accident.  Soon, she came to the realization that yoga is not only good for her physical body but also healing her mind and spirit.  She got 2 ulcers caused by stress from her intense real estate career but yoga helped her finding the Middle Way, living fully in the present with no attachments and no expectations. 


Yuka enjoys practicing different styles of yoga including Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Bhakti, Power, and Yin.  She completed her 200 and 300 hours of RYT Yoga Alliance training in 2019 and has been teaching various classes from Yin to advance Vinyasa flow since then.  She is passionate about helping others to see the benefits and beauty of yoga that can change their lives forever.  She has also trained in the art of Thai Yoga massage under Coco Zhang.
