Emily is a Yin teacher in a Yang world.
Her yoga journey began over 20 years ago when she and her dad decided to try a local yoga class one day. She settled into her first ever savasana and knew her life path had changed. Her decade of teaching experience ranges from addiction recovery, to corporate wellness, to teaching at some of the top yoga studios in Southern California.
Emily completed her first teacher training in San Francisco with Asta Yoga. She has since completed her 500-hour teacher training with Jennifer Elliott and Yoga Works. And has remained a student by continuing to deepen her studies with teachers such as Jillian Pransky, Christy Lynn Hicks, Tracee Stanley, and Chanti Tacoronte-Perez.
Emily’s classes are centered around the breath. She has a particular passion for yin and restorative yoga and is usually found teaching restorative restful sessions. Though, she has been known to deliver strong challenging flows when the moment arises. Her teaching weaves an awareness of the deep history and traditions of yoga, and how it touches every aspect of our being. Her graceful guidance provides a safe and joyful environment for curious exploration, leaving students relaxed and empowered to take on the challenges of their worlds.
When she is not in the yoga room, Emily is either learning to surf the waves, making amazing gluten-free pancakes, or in creation of something new.

"I met Emily when I started my sober journey and she has been my saving grace. Her listening and attention to detail are beyond. She makes me feel heard and understood even when it's difficult to articulate my own thoughts. Emily has a calm healing energy that is so welcoming to open up to. That along with her techniques and recommendations, whether it be a podcast, meditation, etc., have helped guide me back to the right path. Will forever be grateful for her work!"
