Kimber first found yoga through injury. After she completed 6 months of hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2007, she was pleasantly surprised that she could not only heal her body through the practice, but that she could also find the same peace she could find while hiking mountains through asana.
Kimber did her teacher training in 2011 in Thailand studying Ashtanga Vinyasa with Larry Schultz.
Kimber has spent many years traveling between the US and Canada studying many styles of Vinyasa and teaching both in the US and Canada. Some of her favourite Vinyasa teachers include MC Yogi and David Robson.
It wasn’t until Kimber moved to Ashtanga Yoga Victoria that she really started feeling passionate about staying true to the Ashtanga lineage and the tradition of the practice. She loves the Mysore method and couldn’t imagine life without it. She is fully committed to being a student first.
Kimber is grateful to be a part of the teaching team at Ashtanga Yoga Victoria as well as community building and administrator.
Outside of the shala Kimber enjoys anything in the great wide open. On the weekends you can find her snowboarding, surfing, hiking and camping in the BC Mountains. Her teachings are deeply rooted in the earth and riding your ocean like wave of breath.
