Kimberly Manthey, Owner
Passionate About Inspiring Others
In a world filled with distraction and high tech stressors, Yoga and Mindfulness are a great way to hit pause, pay attention and return to the present moment by focusing on what is directly in front of us. This practice of intentional being allows us to remain clear on what is important in our lives while still being able to accomplish a balance of work and home life.
