kim wolff yoga teacher founder of chrysalis yoga retreats wellness adventure travel companyKim Wolff founded Chrysalis Yoga Retreats in 2009 after spending two decades as an Executive, Spokesperson and Educator in the corporate beauty business. Born of her love for yoga, travel and exploration of the world’s spiritual traditions and cultures, CYR is a venture that’s inspired by the desire to share these life changing experiences with others.

Traveling has always been a passion of Kim’s, beginning with her first trip to Europe. Once initiated into the world of wanderlust, her heart led her back to Paris, France, where she lived for a year. Her Parisian pied-à-terre became a home base from which she was able to explore the continent by train. Curiosity and a strong sense of adventure has since taken her on journeys around the world.

Kim began her formal study of yoga and the healing arts in 2008 with Saul David Raye – a pioneering and inspiring presence in yoga’s evolution in the west. She’s 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.

Kim is 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.
