Theatre professor, distance runner, and chocolate-lover, Emily completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Tapas Yoga Shala in Rock Island, IL, in 2015. She is currently working on her 500-hour certification with Spira Power Yoga in West Seattle, and she has studied with master yoga teachers including Kino MacGregor, Tim Feldmann, Jason Crandell, and Carina Terra. She also developed and regularly leads Yoga for Artists & Creativity workshops around the country.
Recognizing that everyone needs an opportunity to focus, breathe, and re-connect the mind with the body, Emily teaches classes that use asanas (yoga poses or postures) to hone balance, flexibility, strength, and confidence. She strives to reach students where they are and help them shape their own practice, recognizing that yoga is beneficial for every age, background, and body type. Emily’s personal yoga practice is grounded in the Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga tradition, and she teaches Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Power, and Yin Yoga classes. Above all, she is eager to share her passion for yoga and mindfulness practices with others.
