Emily took her 1st Bikram Hot Yoga class in 1999, and she was hooked. She loved the way it made her feel after every class, mentally and physically. She is dedicated to her practice, which includes Power Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, and Sculpt.
She enjoys teaching to all levels of students, and not just hot! She is a motivated yoga instructor with advanced training in proper breathing techniques, modifications and safe alignment. She enjoys encouraging others to improve wellness and fitness for long-term health.
She received her 200-Hour Yoga Alliance certificate through Open Up Yoga Teacher Training, and also completed a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training at The Ashram Yoga. During her training, she expanded her knowledge of the spiritual and meditative aspects of yoga. In addition, she completed Street Yoga training, which teaches youth mindfulness by providing access to tools that help develop self-control and a positive self-image, and is certified to teach the Pretzel Yoga Kid’s curriculum.
In April of 2021, Emily competed a 300-hour Teacher Training through Cloud Nine Yoga and her current designations include: RYT® 500, RYT® 200, E-RYT® 200.
