Fifteen years ago, Kimber Simpkins gave up being a lawyer and dove into the intensive study study of yoga, with barely a glance back. Since then, yoga has brought more joy and delight to her life every day. The wisdom of Buddhist and Tantric philosophy, the insights of physics and psychology, storytelling, and music, continuously resonate through Kimber's teaching and the experience of her students on the mat. Kimber is the author of the Silver Nautilus Award winning memoir Full How one woman found yoga, eased her inner hunger, and started loving herself, out in March 2015 from New Harbinger Publications. Currently, Kimber is working on a second book, 52 Ways to Love Your Body, based on the yoga workshop in which she shares with women the tools that led her from loathing her body to loving it. In addition to her work around body image and eating, Kimber finds herself drawn to the question of how yoga can help our innate connection to nature stay vibrantly alive while living in an urban environment. Kimber received her teaching certification through Anusara Yoga in 2008.
