As a lover of fresh air, new experiences, food made with love, the warmth of a warn-in hoodie and the coziness of a summer home (AKA: a 2 person tent), Emily exudes a grounded and sweet aura everywhere she goes. She believes that honoring each of our yin & yang, dark & light, inner & outer, and lunar & solar qualities create the balance that we are searching for. Her belief is that yoga has amazing ways of bringing feelings, discomfort and authenticity to the surface. By acknowledging what rises, students can begin to form their own joy. Every person’s yoga is about something different, however through it, we all seem to be uncovered to our true self and allow ourselves to just be.
Emily lives by the words lokah samasta sukhino bhavantu, translating into "May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may my thoughts, words and actions contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all." Understanding that nature brings a sense of liberation and joy, Emily has created many retreats that combine adventuring outdoors and practicing yoga away from the studio environment. She also believes that being out of your comfort zone is where growth happens. Taking yoga out of a studio and into the world helps us maintain our inner stability by practicing in the ever changing elements.
