The Thanyapura Mind Centre in Phuket has appointed Kimberly Roberts as yoga teacher. Kimberly has been devoted to Ashtanga discipline since 1992.

In addition to ongoing classes, Kimberly will offer special workshops on various aspects of the yoga tradition periodically throughout the year. She will also host master teachers to offer in-depth programs on the philosophy and practical applications of yoga.

Kimberly will host her inaugural weekend yoga retreat at the Thanyapura Mind Centre between 18 and 20 November 2011. The weekend is suitable for all levels of practitioners searching for a boost to mind, body and soul.

Kimberly’s background as a student of Tibetan Buddhism lends a contemplative aspect to her teaching style; her view of the Ashtanga system is as a support to settle the body and mind into meditation. Programmes will explore the traditional practice of Ashtanga yoga, incorporating insights from the Buddhist teachings to offer an expanded and deeper view of the Ashtanga practice.

“The benefit of yoga practice is that it prepares the body for meditation,” Kimberly said. “You don’t have to be anywhere else but exactly where you are to experience these benefits. Phuket is a wonderful location to practice, especially surrounded by the natural beauty of a national park and the simple elegance of Thanyapura’s facilities.”

Kimberly began her committed practice of Ashtanga yoga in 1992 under the guidance of Richard Freeman, while studying for a masters degree in contemplative psychology at Naropa University in Colorado, USA. Greatly inspired by his teachings, she practiced and eventually taught with him in Colorado for ten years and still regularly studies with him.

After a year spent studying with Sri Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath Rangaswamy in Mysore, India, she became authorised to teach the Ashtanga yoga system. In addition, Kimberly earned a teaching certificate from the White Lotus Institute in Santa Barbara, California. She has also been a dedicated student of Tibetan Buddhism since 1992 and has sat numerous meditation retreats as both participant and teacher.

Kimberly has taught yoga and meditation in an eclectic variety of settings, including schools, retreat centres, embassies, treatment centres, and hotels in North America, Europe and Asia. She ran retreats in post-tsunami Sri Lanka, directed the yoga programme at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hong Kong from 2006-07 and most recently, organised retreats in Bhutan.

Thanyapura Mind Centre offers teachings in meditation, yoga and related practices to all who seek greater meaning and fulfilment in their lives. The centre also brings these ancient contemplative practices together with rigorous modern scientific methods, including neuroscience and psychology. Teachings at the Mind Centre are open to all.
