Hi, my name is Kimberley Luu and I am a therapeutic yoga teacher specializing in yoga nidra, the art of yogic sleep. My passion for yoga nidra was birthed from many years of struggle with sleep disorders; for a long time, it was the only thing that could grant me a moments peace. Given the brevity of healing I've experienced since finding home sweet home on my yoga mat in 2008, it is now my duty to share it. I love facilitating experiences of deep rest, here in my cozy home studio, The Nidra Nest, and broader local community in Kitchener-Waterloo, ON. Rooted in my training with various yoga therapists and pioneers of yoga nidra, I utilize my formal background in human movement and meditation neuroscience to create holistically rejuvenating practices for the body, breath, and mind; allowing for a deeper connection with our inner wisdom, joyful essence, and true Self. Feel welcomed to connect with me at my website: kpyluu.wordpress.com.
