Emily is a student and teacher, of yoga in the Hudson Valley of New York. She comes to yoga with a mindful and holistic focus. Upon beginning her practice more than 10 years ago, she immediately responded to the power of yoga to unite the body, mind and spirit, leaving her feeling physically and mentally at peace. Emily’s focus is to help students experience the benefits of yoga through a creative vinyasa flow and meditative approach, which clears the mind and paves the way for inner awareness and spiritual calm. She is particularly passionate about the ability of yoga to help people living with serious illness, depression or addiction, and focuses her efforts on providing a compassion-centered, mindful yoga practice to people facing these challenges. Teaching yoga is her way to help others achieve the physical strength and inner peace that she has found from her practice. It is the healing spiritual essence of yoga that she wishes to share with her students.
