Unyong Kim regards every event in her life as an influence that has molded her teaching model, from conquering the fear of public speaking to crossing the finish line at the Marine Corps Marathon. She pours all her wisdom and experience into her yoga classes, which are designed to promote relaxation for her students. She tries to teach yoga as a state of mind, rather than a series of postures, packaging it as a meditative practice for personal benefit and an attitude that can inform life off the mat.
The core of Unyong's training still takes place in the classroom, though. She has a series designed to promote a calm state of mind, a series to challenge the body, and a series built around family-style games such as horseshoes, where dad is the pole and little Billy is the horseshoe.
