Kimmer has been practicing different styles of yoga off and on for the last 15 years. In 2008 she took her first Prana Flow class and immediately fell in love with the beauty, creativity and freedom of the practice. After 30+ years of wear and tear on her body as a gymnast, collegiate swimmer and avid runner her love for physical fitness began to take its toll on her body. Multiple injuries and arthritis made it difficult to remain physically fit. Additionally, life became more complex as she became a mother of 2 boys, worked as a flight attendant and created her own floral business. Now in her Mid 40’s Kimmer finds Yoga to help fulfill many needs while keeping her grounded through her busy lifestyle. “Yoga can be physically challenging, creative, nurturing and calming all at the same time.” Teaching comes naturally for Kimmer through her ability to connect with others. The daughter of two educators, she was provided with many examples of “Living Yoga.” In 2009 she completed her 200 hour RYT in Prana Flow with Maria Garre as well as Anjali Restorative Yoga with Shannon Paige Schneider. Recently she has returned from Costa Rica where she studied with Shiva Rae. Kimmer finds Yoga to be an effective tool to keep life in perspective. She has completed an additional 300 hours of training With Shiva Rae, Maria Garre and Andrew McCauley to achieve 200 hr E-RYT and 500 RYT certification. In addition to teaching yoga classes she is training the Middletown High School Wrestling team, Girls Lacrosse and Girls Track and Field teams. She also revived her Mat Pilates certification in 2012 from Balance Studio in Bethesda. When not teaching, Kimmer enjoys spending time with her family and nature at their Farm in Middletown. Dragonflower Yoga will open officially in October for now Kimmer is teaching at Ananda Shala Yoga and Pilates studio in Historic Frederick as well as Mountain Spirit Yoga in Middletown.
