Owner and Yoga Teacher
Hi, my name is Charms, owner of Milton Yoga Hub, teacher of adult yoga classes and all private sessions. I am a mother of 3 beautiful girls and have lived close to Milton for 9 years. I feel completely blessed to have this stunning backdrop of Milton's rolling green hills and the Pacific Ocean as my yoga studio and to be able to share this space with you.
Since motherhood I have been an over achiever, tackling too many things at once to prove my worth, but always feeling stretched, scattered and guilty. It wasn't until my life came to a scary cross road that I left my corporate job and began a journey of self discovery. I knew deep in my heart that I wanted more inner joy, contentment and connection. I felt the need to give back to my community and my family as they had supported me with unconditional love and support since the moment I arrived.
My love for yoga began 13 years ago, as my mum is a wonderful yoga teacher! But it wasn't until this inner journey began, that I realized yoga is not just physical movement to get a great body. The more I practiced the more this became apparent, the more I breathed into these poses, the more my mind and body craved the joy, strength and clarity it gave me.
Yoga for me is creating space, opening doors and releasing clarity in your mind through breath and movement. As a bonus, yoga strengthens your body as well as your mind. Working your muscles consciously and focusing your attention through breath gives you the building blocks to face any obstacle in your life with understanding, patience and joy.
Yoga's capacity to heal the body and the mind, regardless of age or health, continues to astound me on a daily basis. This is holistic healing at its best.
I have completed my Yoga Alliance Registered 200hour Yoga Teacher Training with Russel Vitale, Vita Yoga Byron Bay, and am currently continuing my studies to achieve my 350hour level 2 RYT certification with Himani Smeaton, Dolphin Point Yoga. I hold a current First Aid and CPR certificate.
Milton Yoga Hub's style of yoga teaching synchronises movement with breath in a flowing vinyasa style practice that creates strength, flexibility and balance. Classes are designed to empower students to take control of their whole mental and physical wellbeing. I am here to help people within my community as well as visitors to find the same inner release and connection with mind, body and spirit, so that they can comfortably and competently move their bodies through life with clarity and joy.

Her yoga practice today and over past years, helps her strive to be the best version of these things that she can be. After studying to become a registered psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia, she traveled the world for 6 years gaining both professional and life experience – taking her yoga practice with her, this often taking on many different forms and styles. Upon returning to Australia in 2015, Kim sought to more deeply understand how the ancient practice of yoga could nurture the mind, body and soul. She completed her 350 hour yoga teacher training over 12 months with Kate Pell at Bowral Yoga Studio and has since become a Registered Level 1 Teacher with Yoga Australia. She has a keen interest in yogic philosophy and her teaching practice focuses on alignment, developing self-awareness and strengthening the connection between the mind and body through breath, meditation and physical postures.

She thrives on constantly learning and combining her knowledge about the ancient practice of yoga with modern psychology, to help herself and others live more mindful, compassionate and meaningful lives.
