Kimber (she/her/hers) is a white-identified, cis, queer mom who has taught yoga and mindfulness in the San Francisco Bay area for almost twenty years, bringing a body acceptance and social justice perspective to her teaching and learning. As a long time yoga and dharma practitioner, Kimber values how our compassion, self-knowledge, and decreased reactivity help us increase our skillfulness in the face of injustice. Knowing that yoga and dharma can be used to bypass uncomfortable conversations and exclude people from the practice, she is constantly working on her ability to work mindfully with discomfort as a student, a teacher, and a facilitator. She has witnessed first hand how mindful embodiment has brought more connection, sensitivity, and joy to relationships and life. She became an Anusara Certified Yoga Teacher in 2008, completed the Dedicated Practitioner's Program at Spirit Rock in 2016, teacher training at the Mindfulness Training Institute in 2017, racial justice facilitator training with Holistic Resistance in 2020, and is currently a member of the Spiritual Teacher Leadership Program at the East Bay Meditation Center in Oakland.
