Teachers

KIMBERLY DAHLMANN
Kimberly Dahlmann has been a student of yoga and meditation since 1994, and a teacher for more than 22 years. She is the founder and director of Yoga East and a 500-hour E-RYT certified instructor by the Yoga Alliance.

A dedicated practitioner of Ashtanga yoga, Kimberly began practicing under to guidance of Nancy Gilgoff and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 1999, traveling to Maui for extended periods to study with Nancy and to India to study with “Guruji” Pattabhi Jois.

Although Kimberly’s yoga roots run deep in the traditional practice and methods of Ashtanga, in recent years Kimberly has continued personal study and practice in the Iyengar tradition of yoga with her teacher Kofi Busia, where she has discovered a deeper understanding of the healing, therapeutic potential of yoga.

As a teacher of yoga, Kimberly forms a careful synthesis, bridging reverence for traditional vinyasa practice and the lineage from which it originates, while also teaching the importance of postural, structural alignment, and the innately therapeutic nature of asana practice. Kimberly integrates pranayama (breath practices), meditation, and therapeutic approaches with traditional Ashtanga
