ABOUT


ABOUT ME

Hi! I am Emily and I am passionate about yoga, yoga therapy, anatomy, wellness, compassion and peace. I created a yoga teacher training program because I saw a need for a training that introduces students to the whole picture of yoga; asana, pranayama, meditation, the sister science of Ayurveda and a solid understanding of yoga and how yoga asanas can be adapted for a wide audience.  Yoga is not just for skinny, flexible people.  Yoga is for everyone regardless of size, skin color, age and health. I created The Yoga Teacher Mentor because I was so tired of amazing yogis having to get a “real job” because they were unable to make a living at teaching yoga.  My goal is to help yoga professionals create successful yoga careers that support them so they can in turn change the world through yoga.

EXPERIENCE

I have well over 2500 plus hours in the classroom and have taught group classes, private sessions, small private groups, corporate classes, workshops and online classes. My students have ranged from flexible and strong to individuals confined to a chair. I have helped professional athletes prepare for and recover from competition and I have helped people which chronic disease. Teaching is the most wonderful opportunity to serve those around me. Every teaching experience is a learning experience as well.
