Welcome to KimHartwell.com!

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting my page, it’s so great to e-meet you. My name is Kim Hartwell, I’m a movement coach, yoga teacher, rock climber and avid adventurer. When I’m not teaching in class you’ll find me bouncing around this awesome planet we live on, on the rocks, in the surf or teaching with my brand of rock climbing and yoga retreats Rock & Soul Adventures.

I have a deep rooted passion for helping people to feel the very best version of themselves. When you feel confident in what your body can do, you feel confident in your day to day life. Couple that with mindfulness in your day to day life (both on and off the mat) and you’re golden. I’m a firm believer that a healthy body is a happy body. Movement and nature is our medicine.

My blog is dedicated to sharing my tips & tricks I’ve picked up along the way, with a vision of helping you with your wellness journey wherever in the world your journey takes you.

Let’s get to know each other! Please let me know your questions, thoughts, opinions and any requests you may have! Please get in contact with me, I love hearing from my community! I’m here to help you!

Kims Coaching Philosophies & Mentors

In 2017 Kim completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training program registered with the Yoga Alliance having studied under Lara Baumann’s “Quantum Yoga” philosophy in Sri Lanka. Since then Kim has gone on to explore many different trainings in both yoga, movement and coaching. She is constantly inspired and motivated by her mentor Celest Pereira who specialises in anatomy and movement of the body (as a former physio and dancer).

Kim now specialises in what she likes to call “Movement Flow” which she sees as somewhere between traditional fitness and yoga teaching. Using creative flows in fusion with her knowledge of the human body through her years of coaching, she teaches fun, exciting and challenging sessions. Classes encourage free, multi directional, different movement which intends to not only challenge the body differently, but also the brain. Kim isn’t interested in how many advanced postures you can achieve, she’s interested in how much you can explore the human movement you have available to you. How much can you challenge yourself in different ways – no matter how “yogi” you think you are or not.

For Kim everyone has the ability to move, to feel happy and to feel strong in their body.

Come and explore that with her on the mat!
