Meet Our Teachers
Kim’s work in nursing homes and end-of-life companionship through integrative therapy has been life-changing and magical. Urban Zen Integrative Therapy (UZIT) utilizes mindful movements (done in bed, laying on the floor, or in a chair), body awareness meditations, breath awareness, reiki, essential oils, and contemplative care to alleviate symptoms of pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, constipation and exhaustion. These modalities were created specifically for use in sick, elderly, or dying patients, as well as all forms of caregivers. The UZIT work and training is such a unique and purposeful fit to Kim’s background, as well as her love for yoga, mindfulness, self-driven healing, and self-care. UZIT training helped Kim identify her personal need for self-care as a mother; she learned the importance in taking care of your needs so that you may serve others. She was also introduced to the concept of contemplative care and bearing witness, which has changed and expanded her ability to be present with her loved ones, clients and the world at large. She opened Sacred Space Astoria to create a spiritual home where you feel held, supported and empowered in your body and can carry those sensations to all areas of your life.
With a wide selection of classes, workshops, healing arts sessions, and intuitive readings, the teachers and practitioners are a highlight of Sacred Space Astoria. Each member of our team has been personally vetted, ensuring a quality experience for our students. There’s no need to worry about whether you’ll have a “good” experience, as the energy behind all of our offerings is supportive, positive, and welcoming. Our teachers and practitioners have varied experience and training, allowing you to find the right match for your needs and growth.
