Victoria King

Biography:

Victoria King stepped into her first yoga class in 2009. What drew her to yoga was the internal healing powers, and the possibility for yoga to be a way to cope with stress, anxiety, and depression. At the time, she was unaware of all the potential that yoga could truly hold. Over the years she has become a firm believer that yoga is for everybodyin some way, shape, or form. Since her first yoga class, yoga has continually been there for her through all of life’s highs and lows, and has always served as a gentle reminder that life is exactly as it should be in that moment.

Victoria completed her 200 hour YTT in 2019 at M3 Yoga. Her goal as a teacher is to help bring the peace of mind, inner clarity, and strength building that yoga has brought to her to her students. Her classes focus on the mind-body connection, building strength from the inside out, and learning to take the lessons learned on the mat out into daily life.

I became certified to teach in September 2019, so I am newer to teaching yoga. What inspired me to teach yoga was wanting to have the potential to show others the amazing gifts yoga can offer. If I can give to others just an ounce of what yoga has given to me, that would be incredibly meaningful to me.

Can I say all of them?? I do love them all but a nice sweaty Power Flow or anything being taught by Sarah are my go-tos.

What do you enjoy most about M3?
I came to M3 for the wide variety of classes offered. I have stayed because it’s a home away from home to me now. I admire so many of the teachers and I love the sense of community that I feel when I walk into a class, M3 is extraordinarily special.
