Kim Wenger Hall: Yogi, Traveler, Artist
"Yoga IS a spiritual practice. The asana is just a warmup." - BKS Iyengar
 "Travelasana really began when I was in St. Lucia for vacation.  Early one morning, I was practicing yoga on a wooden dock off the beach. The water was crystal clear and a bright aqua blue. Right beneath my yoga mat, I saw resort-branded soda straws moving with the grasses on the seafloor. Scores of tiny colorful fish were swimming through the waves of plastic and seagrass. I knew then that I needed to combine my passion for yoga and travel with my deep desire to help to make the world a better place. 

 With Travelasana, I hope to bring like-minded yogis together so that they may deepen their yoga practice, explore our beautiful planet, and bring willing hands and hearts to service projects around the world."
Based in Lebanon, New Hampshire, Kim Wenger Hall is an accomplished muralist and devoted teacher of yoga. Kim completed both her 200-hour and 300-hour yoga teacher training programs with Angie Follensbee-Hall, EYRT 500. Following Angie’s lead, Kim focuses not just on the asana practice, but dives deep into the history, anatomy, and philosophy of yoga.

Kim’s profession as a muralist grew alongside her pursuit of yoga. Her high-end clientele brought her from Naples Florida to Cape Cod, to Lake Winnipesaukee, Vermont, then finally to New Hampshire. Meanwhile, her love of yoga swept her to retreats in Costa Rica, the Adirondacks and to countless workshops. It was at a Kundalini retreat, where she was able to tune in to that clear small voice that said, “Just be yourself. Who you are is amazing. Be more YOU.” That’s where her yoga journey really started.

As an RYT-500 yoga teacher, Kim has brought her heart-centered style of yoga to special populations including women in recovery, survivors of traumatic brain injury, older adults and patients undergoing cancer treatment. Focusing on evidence-based practice as well as having fun, she meets participants where they are, intertwining coaching with meditation, pranayama and challenging asana. Kim brings elements of classic Hatha yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Kundalini into her studio classes, guiding her students to develop greater strength, balance, and flexibility in their physical body, and a sense of clarity and contentment into their mental/emotional body. 

“The goal and the birthright of all individuals is to realize the spiritual unity behind the diversity throughout creation and to live harmoniously as members of "one universal family.” This goal is achieved by the maintaining of our natural condition…”
- Yogi Satchidananda Saraswati

These days, Kim's art career has taken a back seat to her yoga life, but she still finds time to create a project here and there...
