Kimberly offers private yoga sessions and teaches our weekly Yoga for Cancer Thrivers, Survivors, and Caregivers here at CRIM every Tuesday from 12:00-1:00.

Before relocating to Austin, Kimberly was named in Backstage Magazine's 'Best of L.A.' under favorite yoga class. She has gone thru trainings with Alan Finger (ISHTA lineage), Kia Miller (Yoga Works techniques), Jillian Pransky (Restoratives), Judith Lasater (Restoratives) and Jasmine Lieb, for Therapeutics, where she discovered the amazing healing abilities of yoga.  As a result, Kimberly had the opportunity to teach for Team Survivor, a non-profit organization providing free healing modules for women living with cancer during her time in Los Angeles and continues that work here in Austin. 

Kimberly holds a light hearted space, exploring breath, alignment, and relaxation techniques, to ultimately draw in the natural healing abilities of the body.  For more information on her other class offerings in Austin please visit her website at:

What our clients have to say about Kimberly Wharton:

Your private yoga therapy sessions have been very healing and inspirational. I greatly appreciate how you combine different forms of yoga to create a relaxing and energizing effect, within a healthy safe environment. I also appreciate your sensitivity and experience in addressing a person’s unique needs, physical challenges, and sources of stress, as well as considering and building on the person’s strengths. The background music and sounds and the guided meditations that you used helped to deepen the relaxing and energizing effects of the yoga practice. I am looking forward to another private yoga session with you. Thank you!
