Kami graduated from the Arizona School of Massage Therapy Tempe, AZ in 2003 with an 800 hour massage therapy certificate. After a brief period of massage in Arizona, Kami moved back to her home state of Washington, to start her career in massage therapy. She has worked in many settings from spa to clinical practice, but her passion has been in injury rehabilitation and deep tissue therapies.
In 2006 Kami's journey to becoming a yoga instructor began. She found herself in her first hot yoga class. Excited about the physical benefits of hot yoga, she never expected to have her life changed. She walked away from her first class thinking, “That was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” Within a couple weeks she noticed the definite physical changes as well as a new mental clarity and calmness.
By 2010 Kami knew she wanted to share her passion for yoga with others. By April that year, Kami had earned her 200 hour RYT, and was on her way to sharing the gift of yoga. It is her goal to inspire others by leading with example, “I don’t have the best physical practice, but that’s what yoga is about. No judgment for myself or others.”
Through Be One Yoga Kami is able merge her two passions in life, yoga and massage therapy. Helping people better their whole selves.
