Emma tried Sivananda yoga for the first time when she was 17, but because she lacked an understanding of what yoga really was at that time, the practice didn’t resonate with her. So she left the class and didn’t return for nearly 10 years. It wasn’t until she was going through a difficult time in her life that yoga once again found her. She realized almost immediately how beneficial the practice actually was, and proceeded to take a number of different classes including, Yin, Restorative, Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini and Bikram. She later traveled through Central America, practicing yoga at hostels, studios and on the beach in Guatemala, Nicaragua and eventually Costa Rica. In Costa Rica she started working for a yoga studio as both a receptionist and part-time manager. It was through that same studio that she eventually did her 200-hour YTT in a style called Karuna Flow, graduating in February of 2016. Since then Emma, has been teaching community classes, facilitating yoga and creative writing workshops and taking on private clients. She strives to bring joy, fluidity and a little touch of humour to all of her classes, reminding people to never take themselves too seriously. It’s just yoga after all.
