Yoga for Every BODY

Kimberly Dark

About the Facilitator(s)

 

Kimberly Dark is a master facilitator who has led groups to awareness and understanding on three continents over the past twenty years. In addition to teaching yoga since 1999, she’s a writer and storyteller whose work has been invited to hundreds of colleges, universities, theatres, festivals and conferences. Her yoga classes focus on strength, balance, flexibility and peace for every body – an ability to practice radical self-love and acceptance while learning the skills of peace and cultural transformation. She blogs regularly for Huffington Post and Ms. Magazine in addition to contributing essays and stories about personal and cultural transformation via body acceptance to a variety of books and publications.

Kimberly uses an Iyengar-style training and more than twenty years experience with diverse yoga practices to challenge and welcome students of every ability and body type. She has taught yoga styles ranging from vinyasa, yin and restorative to prop-assisted hatha yoga for people who don’t feel comfortable in fitness settings due to size, health or anxiety. Her classes encourage personal sovereignty, inner voice and an entitlement to health and vibrancy at all sizes, ages and abilities.
