More About Kidecia King | Full Professional Bio
Kidecia King holds multiple certifications in Yoga and Meditation training and teaching as well as a Graduate Level Evidence-Based Coaching certificate from Fielding Graduate University’s Human And Organizational Development program. Before integrating Yoga/Meditation into her work as a Coach, Kidecia practiced self-inquiry/observation since early childhood and Yoga and Meditation for over 15 years without fully naming her practice Yoga.
She started practicing Asana and other limbs in high school, and structured meditation in college before finally devoting herself to the Eightfold Path after integrating/contextualizing her direct personal experiences and understandings with her life-long research and conscious educational choices as an adult.
Once Kidecia made an official commitment to her practice as a Yogi and began to see how she could support others on this path, she started training as an official Yoga/Meditation Guide and Educator to be of greatest service to those would benefit from her work/research.
Kidecia also holds certification as a Trauma Support Specialist with the Arizona Trauma Institute, which has earned her the unofficial title of “Master Healer.”
This title highlights Kidecia’s commitment to both perform her work with competency and compassion, and it underscores her commitment to building upon her extensive experience and training in Trauma Support work and Trauma-Informed Care after having served the call from her spirit in many different capacities, which led her to serve numerous at-risk populations across the United States throughout her career.
This experience includes serving at the WCA (Women’s Center for Advancement) and at Lutheran Family Services in Omaha, Nebraska where Kidecia was honored to lead a Girls’ Leadership Academy program to empower young women to become active agents in their lives and communities, facilitate a Women’s Empowerment Workshop for survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence, and mentor a refugee who escaped her country due to religious persecution. Having served in these capacities and more, as well as healing her own personal traumas throughout life, Kidecia knows a great deal about the realities of working and living with the issue of trauma, toxic stress, and adversity, as well as the realities of healing these things in one’s body, mind, family, and community.
Over the past 8 years, Kidecia has gained expertise in her field through hundreds of hours of coaching and teaching experience and she continually focuses on maintaining strict personal and professional standards of ethics in her practice. In addition to engaging in ongoing continued education for service excellence, she also engages in continued self-care and personal development (a requirement for her commitment to herself as a Yogi) to continuously grow, improve, and be her best in all that she does.
Kidecia knows that her work with others is a calling rather than a choice. If she had a choice, she would be an isolated monk living only in “social connection” with planet Earth, living somewhere secluded with the land, water, air, flora, fauna, and her Creator as her only contacts (which may still very much occur in her lifetime). So, for now, she simply accepts her physical existence among others in her species within the context of society and performs her work with humility since she is, at her core, fully aware of the honor to exist in service to the Truth of our collective oneness.
Kidecia recognizes that her capabilities, birth, personal experiences/learnings, natural aptitudes, interests, skills, and unshakable empathetic desire to help others reduce their suffering through personal empowerment and the development of skills toward self-awareness, higher self-expression, and self-sufficiency are why this site exists. Kidecia knows that her work is only to fulfill her Dharma/duty that has been determined by the Creator (and was made very aware of this on a personal level throughout numerous points in her life). She gives all credit for her ability to do this work to “The Source/Creator” since she is only a vessel through which the Creator’s work can be done in this world. Every day, she strives to serve this Truth to the best of her abilities.
Kidecia’s undergraduate studies were multidisciplinary and focused on how humans perceive and create reality and how this reflects in society. She studied everything from Neuroscience and Psychology, to Anthropology, Philosophy, Media Studies/Communication, and Biology, but chose a concentration in Sociology and Comparative Literature (which allowed her to combine all of these other disciplines into a specialized area of focus). During her undergraduate years, she conducted extensive independent research (in Varanasi, India) focused on human birth and birth rituals (activities/performances that create and reinforce identities, states of consciousness, norms, etc) which she later continued in the United States. She continues her birth-focused advocacy research independently today (learn more here).
Every day, Kidecia works to integrate her love of learning, communication, music, and the Creator into her work and lives a simple self-sufficient, eco-friendly, lifestyle with her companion-cat, Nina.
Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, and a hermit by preference and choice, Kidecia works from home in both her Yoga/Meditation and her Customer Service-based businesses. Kidecia loves nature, cooking, crafting, yoga/meditation, singing, dancing, writing, and music.
