Emily strives to promote an atmosphere of comfort, support, and expression in her yoga classes. She has studied movement as an art and therapeutic practice for several years and enjoys working collaboratively as an educator, performer, and therapist.
In her growth as a yoga instructor, Emily has specialized in prenatal yoga and restorative yoga: including exploration in the healing art of Reiki and energy work. Emily has grown passionate about teaching prenatal yoga to women in all stages of pregnancy. It is her hope to empower women in this transitional stage of life to confidently discover their intuitive wisdom as well as prepare for the process of labor with greater awareness of themselves and their baby. Ultimately, Emily loves guiding students in a safe space to relax, release, and indulge while connecting to body and heart.
While delving deeper into the body/mind/spirit connection Emily was pulled to the city of Chicago to study Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling at Columbia College Chicago where she completed a master’s and thesis study exploring medical trauma and the integration of yoga and Dance/Movement Therapy as a method of healing and transformation. As a result, Emily has grown passionate about how yoga and movement can serve as a ritual for selfstudy, healing, and emotional grounding.
