REGISTERED YOGA INSTRUCTOR AT THE 500 HOUR LEVEL
CERTIFIED PURNA YOGA TEACHER
Emily teaches a variety of yoga classes for different level students. With a background in Purna Yoga, she teaches safe, alignment-based yoga that helps center the mind and create greater connection between the mind, body, and spirit.
Emily first came to yoga to help manage stress and maintain energy while teaching public school in 2009. She found its calming, centering effects to be transformative. She enrolled in the Purna Yoga 200 hour teacher training in 2011 and began teaching in 2012. Teaching yoga has become one of the great joys in her life. The next step in her yoga study was completing her 500 hour certification, studying under yoga master and founders of Purna Yoga, Aadil Palkhivala and Savitri. She now has the honor of being a Certified Purna Yoga Teacher.
"True yoga is not about the shape of your body,
but the shape of your life.
Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived.
Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been;
yoga cares about the person you are becoming.
Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose,
and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied."
