My name is Kimberly Mengshoel. I am originally from Florida, married to a Norwegian, and together we have 3 practically grown children. We reside in Lillehammer, Norway where I own and manage Lillehammer Yoga Shala.


I have been practicing Yoga for over twenty years and enjoy sharing my experience and knowledge.

When teaching, I apply safe, learnable techniques from my own practice as well as those I have learned from my respected teachers from the Ashtanga lineage. Yoga is for everyone. All it takes is practice and patience.


I did not have the opportunity to practice with Shiri K. Pattabhi Jois, and do not condone his behaviour, but I devote my practice to his lineage. It is a ancient river of teachings that flow to an ocean of wisdom. The more I practice, the more I understand and respect this tradition. The Ashtanga Yoga tradition.


My teachers:

R. Sharath  Jois

David Swenson

Tim Feldmann 

Kino McGregor



I am a Experienced Certified Master Yoga Teacher and Yoga Alliance registered teacher and school. My personal practice is dedicated to Ashtanga Yoga's traditional style. I share my  Hatha, Yin, and  Ashtanga Yoga knowledge and experience with emphasis on alignment, patience and safety for injury prevention.

Lillehammer Yoga Shala is a SAFE PLACE. I speak both English and Norwegian.
