Emily was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon! She spent a large portion of her early twenties traveling the world and teaching yoga, and recently returned back to her roots in Eugene.
She completed her first training in 2013 with Bikram Chodhurry in Los Angeles, and Emily went on to complete her vinyasa 200 RYT with Selena Garefino in Missoula Montana in 2015. In 2015 she decided to become more in touch with touch and became attuned in her master level reiki as well as completed 150 hours in massage therapy in New Zealand with various masters and teachers there. In 2018 she completed her 50 hour advanced training with Gianna Purcell.
When Emily isn’t on the mat or holding the space in the studio she enjoys hiking, reading all of the books, knitting, gardening, writing, playing the piano, and spending copious amount such of time with powerful ladies and her partner.
The biggest lesson I’ve learned through teaching is to not take things personally. I know that we all have our own struggles in life and they can’t be compared. If someone isn’t “behaving” how I want them to be it’s a reflection of my own internal landscape and something to exam on my own. I’ve learned that in those moments the only antidote is deep love, acceptance and compassion.
