Kimber Wigley, E-RYT-200, RYT 500+
For over 15 years, Kimber has been interested in the connection between movement of the physical body and the changing states of mind.
She was introduced to yoga through the physical practice of asana, and soon realised the profound effects the movement had on her mind and ability to find internal comfort in externally uncomfortable situations. With peaked interest, she transitioned to living in Asia and pursued Eastern philosophies and practices.
As her practice transformed, more interest into why certain postures over others were available to her body led her to study functional anatomy and physiology with top teachers around the globe. This foundation propelled her in guiding others in asana classes with a focus in safety and accessibility dependant on the unique body limitations.
Since 2014, Kimber has been sharing her knowledge and experience of yoga asana and anatomy in studios and teacher trainings worldwide in simple, fun and accessible ways. In her practice, she holds the intention to bring herself into alignment with our shared true nature, pure joy.
