"I am passionate about leading and teaching from the heart.
I strive to have my sankalpa - 'soft heart, courageous truth', guide my daily interactions on and off the mat. My aim is to support everyone who I have the privilege of leading through these practices to find and nurture their authentic voice, so that they may act confidently from the heart and stand firmly in their being."
Emily started practicing yoga when she was just 16 years old, and teaching in 2011. Her experience as a Special Education Teacher led to her passion of bringing yoga and mindfulness practices into the school system, to support the challenging experiences of kids - and especially middle schoolers.
No matter the setting, Emily strives to use yoga as a pathway for exploring human values and character traits, while empowering her students to figure out how best to apply these practices to their own lives.
As the Founder of "Yoga in Classrooms and Schools Consulting", Emily's dream is to see all schools providing integrated and impactful yoga and mindfulness instruction to ALL of their students, through dedicated classes and curriculum.
Emily loves to get out in nature and to be active! Her hobbies include standup paddleboarding, hiking, reading, cooking, and traveling the world.
Dark chocolate and herbal tea get her through the day. She enjoys pushing herself out of her comfort zone, and trying to let her heart lead the way (though this is easier said than done 😉).
