Dear Friend, hello and welcome!
My name is Emma and I am an experienced yoga teacher delivering alignment-focused Hatha and Vinyasa classes from beginner to advanced levels. Please read on if you would like to know a little more about my yoga journey.
Yoga came to me at a time when I was struggling to make sense of the many changes in my life that I felt I had no control over. My mind state at that time led me to search desperately for some inner peace and cultivate a more positive outlook on life. Of course, one of the first steps toward healing oneself is to believe that there is a cure and as it turned out, Yoga was that cure for me.
After 5 years of attending classes and noticing the improvements that yoga had on my everyday life, I decided to deepen my understanding of this ancient practice. As a result, I attended a level IV teacher training program at ‘Purna Yoga’ in Byron Bay, Australia. After completing my training and gaining some insight into another way of living and perceiving life, I was then inspired to continue along this path. Not long after my teacher training, I attended a 10 day Vipassana, a Buddhist meditation practice. Consequently, I began to incorporate meditation into my daily routine as well.
More recently, I qualified as a holistic massage therapist in 2015 with the School of Natural Therapies in London. In 2019 I graduated from Kings College London with a BSc (hons) in Physiotherapy. I am particularly interested in women’s health, where I hope to combine my knowledge from from both yoga and physiotherapy to deliver tailored advice and classes for improved health pre- and post-natally.
My personal mission is to share ancient and modern wisdom with those who may find themselves in a similar position to me – searching for a means of cultivating balance and peace in our daily lives.
I truly believe that we all have the potential to be healthy, happy humans!
