I’ve gone twice so far under the the student introductory special. This place is pretty great. ! Love the kind, cheerful and hip vibe.
One of the best pieces of feedback Emily received when she was training to be a therapist was, “you are unique” with no explanation. What she took from that is that she is unapologetically herself and holds space for others to be themselves. She believes that when others are given unconditional positive regard, authenticity, and genuineness they can expand to their true selves.
Emily’s journey with yoga began when she was a teenager and influenced by her aunt who had just completed yoga teacher training. Emily was quickly drawn to the strength she felt from the asana practice but longed to find further connection as she had to practice alone due to no yoga classes in her small Oklahoma town. When she was a freshman in college, she developed an eating disorder, major depressive disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder with panic attacks that occurred daily. She was linked with a yoga teacher through her dietician, where she finally found the spiritual connection and began to heal. Yoga has thus become her anchor in life as she navigated her mental health and personal growth as a mental health therapist.
She graduated from Karma Tribe’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2019, and was trained by Lauren Leduc and Moe Edmonds in Vinyasa and Hatha styles with an emphasis in trauma informed yoga. Additionally, she has a personal practice that is rooted in Ashtanga and Iyengar styles. Students can expect a safe and encouraging environment where they can feel free to be themselves as they are. There is no pretention; she is here to help guide students on their journey to their Self with strength and humor.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time at home with her partner, dog, and plants.
