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 the 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 2016 I was accepted and commenced a degree in Physiotherapy at Kings College London, for which I am entering my final year. I am particularly interested in women’s health physiotherapy, where I hope to combine my knowledge from from both yoga and physiotherapy to deliver tailored advice and classes for improved women’s health.
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!
