Silver is one of the most dedicated teachers and students of yoga I know. Her teaching is infused with wisdom, experience, and a broad range of skills. What I appreciate most about Silver is the depth of her heart and her commitment to serve the light in every student such that they awaken to their God-given potential for freedom and joy.
Todd Norian, E-RYT 500, Founder of Ashaya Yoga
Silver is one of the most open hearted, passionate, and skillful yoga teachers I know. While she has an advanced physical practice and can skillfully guide students of all levels into a variety of poses she understands that the deeper practice of yoga is tendering the heart. By weaving the life affirming philosophy of Ashaya yoga with her own personal stories she creates an environment so that her students have the opportunity to safely unfold their hearts. In this secure and safe environment is where the magic happens as Silver guides her students to the revelation that following their heart is really the divine’s longing to express itself. Silver’s students come away with the recognition that life truly is a gift , that even the obstacles are opportunities, and that manifesting their dreams is their dharma.

I have had the opportunity over the years to study with numerous teachers from many different yoga disciplines. While this has led to growth in many areas, it was not until I discovered Ashaya yoga and senior teacher, Silver Kim, that I felt my heart open deeply into the practice. She embodies her teachings and gently brings you to the path of yoga with body, mind and heart all connecting. Silver is knowledgeable, warm, loving but most importantly deeply connected to her indominitable spirit. She is a teacher of teachers and embodies the pure Shakti that flows within her.
Donna Seed, E-RYT Certified Ashaya Yoga Teacher, Toledo, OH
I met Silver upon my first move in twenty-four years from a beloved home to a new geographic area where I started taking yoga to help with the readjustment. Yoga proved to be a great tool as I started over again in life providing discipline for both my body and mind. I attended class regularly where Silver taught the philosophy behind yoga as well as the stances. Her teaching style was encouraging but firm with plenty of laughter in her classes. Although the tone was light we were encouraged to face our fears on the mat and stretch beyond our comfort zones always with sensitivity to our bodies and their limits. The focus was on extending and stretching beyond self-imposed limits whether psychological, emotional or physical. It was amazing how strong I grew in all three areas with regular practice.
Whether holding private counseling sessions or workshops Silver brings insight, wisdom and compassion. Her knowledge of the Yoga Sutras and ability to share it in class is extremely helpful. I highly recommend attending any workshop Silver offers. Her dedication to and knowledge of yoga is extensive; coupled with her heart these qualities make her a remarkable teacher.
