Kimberley Luu

Total Yoga Nidra Teacher Training (with Yoga Nidra Network)

Hello, my name is Kimberley Luu (she/ her) and I am a therapeutic yoga teacher specializing in yoga nidra, the art of yogic sleep. My affection for yoga nidra birthed from thousands of dreadful nights wrestling with sleep disorders; for a long time, it was the only thing that could grant me a moment’s peace. Since finding sweet solace on my yoga mat in 2008, I’ve been blessed to train with many wonderful yoga therapists and trailblazers of yoga nidra both locally and internationally. Throughout this ongoing journey, I grew acutely aware of the wounds that various systems of oppression had laid inside my body. It was only when I patiently addressed them with practice that I was able to reclaim my rest as an act of healing justice. Grateful for the abundance of restoration I’ve experienced, it is now my heartfelt duty to share these gifts. I am continuously seeking opportunities to support marginalized folks within public health and social service settings in addition to my home studio (The Nidra Nest). With this foundation, I integrate my backgrounds in applied health science and expressive arts to offer out this beautiful tradition with intelligence, creativity, and care.

Contribute to the Yoga Nidra Network

We have chosen to offer these audio recordings freely. We do this because we know yoga nidra to be a valuable practice which we want to share widely. It does, however take a fair bit of time and effort to upload the recordings and maintain this site so you can use it.

If you feel you have benefitted from what you have heard or learnt from this site then please do consider making a contribution towards the maintenance and upkeep of the site. We’d appreciate that, and it would help to ensure we can continue to offer this services freely.

Thank You, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli, Co-Founders, Yoga Nidra Network
