Emily teaches Dynamic Hatha
Emily initially came to yoga many years ago to recover from chronic pain and sports injuries. Always an active person, she fell in love with yoga not only for the physical benefits but also for its ability to heal and transform. She loves how yoga has enabled her to gain a deeper connection and respect for her body and mind and helped her move past the resistances that life has thrown up.
She also loves the community that yoga builds. It provides her with a sense of belonging and support she hasn’t found in quite the same way anywhere else.
Emily is also an avid traveller and loves to explore new places and foods. She loves the outdoors and can often be found taking a walk with her kelpie Druss or simply reading a good book in the sun.

For newer or more experienced students alike, she works to make classes both accessible and challenging and aims for everyone to leave feeling nurtured, restored, and rejuvenated.
She enjoys developing creative sequences and sharing her personal experience and understanding of yogic philosophy in a way that people can integrate into their everyday life.
