Kimi Marin and Jennifer Oechsner

Prana Yoga Fit

Kimi , an avid runner since the age of seven, began practicing yoga in 2000 when she was looking for an activity to complement her vigorous lifestyle and to help relax tight, overused muscles. Over time, yoga became less of a complementary activity and more of a way of life. Kimi began to see how her yoga practice allowed her to reduce stress levels, become more focused, and build physical and mental strength. Kimi has practiced the styles of Iyengar, Ashtanga, Bikram, yin and power yoga. Kimi began teaching to help others reach a deeper understanding of their self and to share the joys, and benefits, of yoga.

Jennifer has been a student of martial arts for the past 10 years and in 2009 received a first degree black belt in Taekwondo. The beating her body was taking in Taekwondo and kickboxing meant it was time to balance her martial arts practice with something softer. “Once I tried yoga, I was hooked,” Jennifer says. “The balance, strength, flexibility and mental focus I found on my yoga mat was the perfect compliment to my martial arts path, and to my life as a whole.” In 2010 Jennifer traveled to India to take her practice to the next level and enrolled in an intensive teacher training course in Ashtanga Yoga. “what better way to delve deeper into my practice than to go right to the source of yoga?” Jennifer is also a certified personal trainer and is looking forward to sharing her knowledge in fitness, nutrition, and yoga on Prana Yoga Fit on each new episode.
