The Present of Yoga’s takeaway:

Immersion: Kimberly immersed herself  in the yoga world when she realised that’s what she wanted to be involved in, without knowing the specific direction that she wanted to go in. She threw herself into it based on her skills, resources and time at that point and it wasn’t a linear path to get to her true passion.

Books that Kim referred to: Pour Your Heart into It by Howard Schultz, the Starbucks founder’s story. Keys to The Vault by Keith Cunningham, which is one of TPOY founder Niraj’s personal favourites too!
