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 structures 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 all I’ve received, it is now my heartfelt duty to share these gifts. I love facilitating serene encounters with deep restoration in both my home studio (The Nidra Nest) and broader community, with particular interest in supporting populations whom have been systemically harmed.
For over a decade, I have delighted in helping dozens of older adults, immigrants, cancer patients, healthcare workers, survivors, activists, and other high-stress groups replenish their resources and uncover their inherent resilience. I integrate my backgrounds in applied health science and expressive arts to offer out this beautiful tradition with intelligence, creativity, and care.
