Toby Israel & Kim Wenger Hall of TravelAsana are gathering a tribe of like-hearted women this March for an unforgettable empowerment journey in Costa Rica.

This all-inclusive retreat is designed for women who want to THRIVE not just survive!

Kim Wenger Hall
Based in New Hampshire, Kim is a muralist and well-traveled yoga lover. As a yoga teacher and certified Health Coach, Kim has brought her dynamic offerings to doctor’s offices, studios and special populations including people in recovery, survivors of traumatic brain injury, older adults, and cancer patients.

Kim intertwines coaching with meditation, pranayama and open-hearted asana. Her background in healthcare has given her the knowledge, too, to speak evidence-based practice to those who don’t gravitate to all that woo-woo stuff! Kim’s approachable, authentically joyous style of teaching excludes no one from receiving all the layers of benefit from the practice of yoga.

Years of yoga journeys and vacation travel to places where travel has caused great damage sparked a desire to leave those “destinations” better off. Kim founded Travelasana with a mission to bring like-minded yogis together: we deepen our yoga practice, explore our beautiful planet, and bring willing hands and hearts to serve projects around the world. “Travel Well, Have Fun, Do Good Work.”
