kim wolff yoga teacher founder of chrysalis yoga retreats wellness adventure travel companyHi, my name is Kim Wolff. Thanks for your interest in getting to know me better!

After spending over two decades as an Executive, Spokesperson and Educator in the corporate beauty and fashion industries, I became burned out from the demands of corporate life. Knowing that something had to change, I took a leap of faith and left the daily grind behind to follow my heart’s calling – sharing the life changing teachings of yoga with others. In 2008, I began instructing classes, facilitating wellness workshops and webinars, and leading retreats in both in the US and abroad. I haven’t looked back since.

My formal study of yoga took place at Exhale Center for Sacred Movement in Venice, CA., which, at the time, was the epicenter for yoga that set the foundation for yoga’s rise in popularity in the western world. I earned my RYT 200 certification with Saul David Raye – a pioneering and inspiring presence in yoga’s evolution in the west.

I’ve also completed intensives and certification programs with master teachers abroad, studying meditation and ayurveda in southern India and traditional Thai yoga massage therapy in northern Thailand.

I’m also honored to serve as an ambassador for Yoga Gives Back, a non-profit whose mission is to mobilize the global yoga community for the purpose of empowering women and girls in India to build sustainable livelihoods and communities.


I view yoga as an ancient science and artform that’s no less relevant today than it was over 5,000 years ago, and is just as necessary to human health and well being than it’s ever been.

On a personal level, it’s a practice that informs the way in which I move through the world – from how I begin and end each day and the manner in which I navigate life’s challenges, to the way I view my place in the universe and my connection to all things in it.

As an instructor, I strive to translate these profound, yet practical, teachings in a way that’s accessible to practitioners of all levels. My intention is to teach yoga as a tool of empowerment that assists students in enriching all aspects of life while encouraging them to embody the highest vision they hold for themselves.

My class sessions are based on classical Hatha yoga philosophy, postures, breathwork and the principles of Ayurveda – the holistic health system of yoga. Providing gentle guidance and focused support, I allow space for each student to explore and find their own connection to the practice. The experience is one that’s intuitive, fluid, dynamic and playful.

So, now that you know a little bit more about me, I’d love to get to know you better! Please feel free to drop me a line and share your yoga experience, ask questions or give feedback. I look forward to connecting with you soon!
