Introduction: I LIVE, EAT, BREATHE, SLEEP, LOVE yoga! I am a certified Yoga Alliance 500 hour Yoga Practitioner and Teacher. I hold a BA in Business and an MA in Psychology. My focus is on alignment and working with clients who are a little timid about their first class all the way to advanced yoga practitioners who want to learn inversions and go deeper into their practice. I have been a yoga practitioner in the discipline of Hatha, Vinyasa and Bikram Yoga for more than 20 years. I am a former USA Yoga National Championship competitor and athlete. I have trained with world champions, such as Joseph Encinia, as well as Rajashree Choudhury (the former wife of yoga guru Bikram Choudhury). I have extensive background in the healing power of igniting the Chakras and living life by the power of the Yamas and Niyamas. We will look at your anatomy and the compression of your joints and possible tension restrictions. Yoga postures are live and dynamic and they are not concrete for each body. I teach with love, compassion and understanding. I understand that all beings suffer and we will work on what might be holding you back in your yoga practice and how that translates to your life.

I had a private yoga session with Emily and she is absolutely fantastic! Emily had a lot of knowledge and experience in yoga and it’s very evident as she teaches you. She helped me modify and educate me so yoga felt confident and my body. Consequently I have less aches and pains and enjoying my practice so much much! I have a lot of knee and wrist pains and she helped me confidently modify my body so my yoga practice is taken to the next level. She’s amazingly rock solid. Thank you Emily!

Emily is an extremely knowledgeable and kind yogi and I recommend her to anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice. She is patient and truly wants you to feel your best in your yoga postures. She understands alignment so well and can explain it in such a simple and clear manner. I will continue to utilize her in the future!

I rate my experience with the instructor as most excellent. She is honest, helpful and committed to her craft. She is not shy about admitting there is more to learn, her beauty is in her willingness to share what she knows.
