There's something really special when you get to witness a community come together in a time of crisis like the Nova Yoga team has done to allow their classes to continue in such unprecedented times. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to practice with the wonderful teachers when normally, I would not be able to, living 7 hours away. It's quite nice seeing the teachers in their own home, keeping it real - but also offering high quality classes. Thank you for being leaders and innovators in this very stressful time. Knowing I have a class scheduled is a bright light in my day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Born and raised in Northern Ontario, Emily has called
Newfoundland home for the last 5 years. She began her Yoga journey
in the summer of 2007 when she signed up for her first 8 week yoga
session. She absolutely feel in love with the practice and the
sense of calm & peace it invoked.
In 2015 she decided she was ready to deepen her knowledge and began studying under Meranda Squires at The Lotus Centre. Completing her 200HR Hatha/Soma Yoga teacher training, she began teaching in the fall of 2016. Considering herself to be a very Yang person, always doing something, she took her first Yin class in 2015 and it became the perfect balance to her Yang life. In 2018 she completed a 16HR Yoga Nidra Teacher Training with Bobby Bessey at Shakti Yoga and travelled to Moncton to complete her 50HR Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with Stephanie Calhoun at Satori Yoga.
Emily’s balance of Yang and Yin aspects can be seen in her teaching styles which range from funky, challenging flows to super chilled out sessions. As a student first and a teacher second, she loves to experiment and try new things in both her own practice and teachings. She has a love for the outdoors and adventure, when she’s not on her mat expect to see her outdoors trying to spend more nights in her tent than her own house.
