She first started practising Yoga in Hong Kong in 2005, which initially started as a hobby. However, after attending many classes in Asia, Australia and Singapore, 450 hours of teacher training and teaching regularly on the farm and at local classes, it has become a lifestyle.
Expanding your awareness is a key part of Yoga, and since living and practising within nature, she noticed that her awareness was expanding from within as she became more grounded and connected to her surroundings.
Her teaching style, Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, is a mixture of the styles that she has studied over the years in various YTTs and workshops, which she modifies and develops depending on the levels and experiences of the guests attending her classes.
Kimberly has been teaching at Keela Yoga Farm full time since 2017, prior to that she was teaching in Singapore and has attended the following yoga teacher training courses:
