I'm Emily, a passionate yoga instructor with over twenty years of professional experience designing and leading mixed-level classes for corporations, private health clubs, and independent yoga studios.
As a dedicated yoga wellness coach, I enjoy helping others reduce their stress, improve their health, and feel their best through the holistic mind/body practices of yoga wellness. I believe yoga is more than just a physical exercise; it's a transformative practice that integrates our bodies' physical, mental, and emotional responses to help us arrive at deeper levels of understanding, relaxation and awareness.
I began practicing yoga as a therapeutic aid to help me move through a difficult life transition.
At the time, I was struggling with a detrimental lifestyle that kept me stuck in unhealthy and habitual patterns of behaviors. My yoga practice gave me the time and space to slow down, turn inwards, and quiet my mind so I could address what needed healing.
I believe wholeheartedly in the power of yoga to heal and transform lives that I've become an advocate for helping others through their healing journey.
I began my yoga studies at The Mindful Body in San Francisco, California, where I taught, practiced, and mentored after completing my 200-hour yoga teacher certification in 2001. My yoga studies continued through immersion courses, workshops, and additional teacher training programs, focusing primarily on Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yoga Therapy, Yoga for Kids, Prenatal, Postnatal and Restorative Yoga.
I've had the opportunity to learn from some of the industry's most influential teachers, including Tim Miller, Nischala Joy Devi, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, Judith Lasater, Sara Powers, and Rod Stryker. But most notably, I have learned the most from the people I teach. They are my real inspiration and the reason why I do what I do.
