DON’T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT
HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR CLIENTS
“My life is super hectic, my job is super stressful and I am a super introverted professional skeptic. To my surprise, I have been a 100% convert to this yoga, vitality and mindfulness thing. My limitations and goals have been recognised, respected and then challenged in a way that made me want to challenge myself. It is very rare to find people who truly make you want to be the best version of yourself and who guide you through the process with such respect and humour.”
Marta Roberts – CEO, SQN Consulting New Zealand
“There’s no doubt that my flexibility has improved, my lower back pains have gone, my stress levels have come down and my desire to go from feeling like an immobile 904-year-old to my previous supreme physical confidence is refreshingly high. My clarity and focus have improved beyond belief, to the extent that I can now see and feel details that I didn’t know were there before. You’ve made the decision to continue a very simple one.”
Dave Bell – Business Consultant & NZ Indoor Cricketer
“We are all busy and I’m like most being a full time working parent with everyone expecting 100% of me 100% of the time…Empower has enabled me the foundation I needed to make lasting change, continuing my long term commitment to my health and wellbeing in a more thoughtful and gentle way. It has been the something different in my life I didn’t know I needed but am so glad I now have.”
Meredith Cole – Senior Project Officer, NZ Police
“To say empower studio has changed my life, sounds like a cliche but it’s the only appropriate way to describe how I feel about it…Empower is much more than a yoga studio, where you practice yoga a few times a week. It truly feels like they are here to help people overcome their own personal suffering in their lives whether that be mental, emotional or physical.”
Alex Riley – Hospitality Management
KIM MUNRO BIO
Kim Munro, co-owner of Empower Studio, has always had a love for working with people. Kim’s career has taken her on a journey from hairdressing and social work, to being a business owner and motivational yoga instructor. Kim dedicates her time as the lead teacher at Empower to deliver three fundamental elements: mindful movement, mindful meditation, and mindful nutrition.
Kim adopted yoga as part of her daily life to overcome some serious health issues. At age 10, she fractured her lumbar vertebrae doing gymnastics. She had to quit as a result, and the fracture wasn’t discovered until adulthood. In 2002, Kim fell 15 foot down an external fire escape stairwell, resulting in a fractured face and significant spinal injuries (she was very lucky to not break her neck!). Due to these life changing events, Kim realised her passion for yoga, but also discovered that there were some traditional yoga alignments that did not work well within her body. This has inspired and informed Kim to develop the way she teaches yoga today. Kim recognises that no two bodies are the same and it is vital to modify yoga for the individual.
Kim’s expansive knowledge and experience has shaped a form of yoga, unique to the Wellington market, which incorporates a strong emphasis on anatomy and alignment. Kim works with her clients to achieve a balance of muscular strength, a healthy degree of flexibility, and passes on her passion for improving and encouraging long-term health, well-being and happiness.

The body we have today you have consistently and persistently created. It is only with the same level of persistence and consistence and most importantly compassion towards yourself that you can affect change.
ANDY MUNRO BIO
Andy thrives on a sense of ageless freedom in mind and body; with the goal to share this experience with his clients. Andy’s health and fitness career has taken him on a journey from a Sports and Exercise Science degree, to becoming a certified Yoga Instructor and qualified Mindfulness Meditation teacher. Andy now co-owns Empower Studio in Wellington’s CBD, where he dedicates his time, as a personal vitality coach, to deliver his three major passions: mindfulness meditation, functional movement, and nutritional bio-individuality.
Having been an all-round sportsman from a young age, Andy began practicing yoga in 2005. He quickly discovered the benefits yoga offered to his running, in particular how it stripped away long held muscular tensions and encouraged greater recovery after training sessions. This quickly led to a regular yoga practice, eradicating his injuries and complimenting his vigorous training and busy work lifestyle. Over the last decade, Andy redesigned himself from a stressed and stiff endurance-based weekend athlete, to a youthful 40-year-old with bounce and elasticity to spare.
Andy wants to empower his clients to feel the same sense of vitality, with a mindful and stress-less approach to life. Along with a BSc (Hons), Andy is a dedicated body weight practitioner, utilising yoga, TRX and Animal Flow/functional movement as his main exercise modalities. Andy believes strongly in learning how to move and eat within the parameters of your body and biodynamic individuality. He teaches from this perspective, always advancing his clients’ knowledge of their own bodies with a strong emphasis on anatomical and muscular understanding. Andy is a passionate advocate of restorative exercise, such as yin yoga, myofascial release, and mindful mobility. He knows that when your body and mind is calm and spacious, so to is the rest of your life’s objectives and responsibilities.
