Emma creates dynamic, flowing, dance-like sequences, synchronising movement with breath and creating a feeling of lightness, ease and deep relaxation. Her classes encourage awareness energetically, physically and spiritually. And her love of handstands and inversions brings an added sense of fun and play to her teachings.
Emma has been a passionate and dedicated yoga practitioner for more than 15 years and has been teaching since 2013. She initially turned to yoga to help a shoulder injury and was greatly inspired by the healing transformation that took place in her body as her yoga practice deepened. Her love of yoga took her to India where she trained to teach Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow, a combination of the traditional Ashtanga practice and a more contemporary Flow style.
Emma shares her ever evolving practice in regular classes and workshops in South London and leads retreats in India, Sri Lanka, Colombia and Europe. She has completed numerous teacher trainings; Inversions with Patrick Beach, Ashtanga with David Swenson, Yin Yoga with Josh Summers, Rocket, Mandala, Yin and Tripsichore with The Yoga People and Yoga Nidra with Uma Dinsmore Tuli. She is a registered Teacher with Yoga Alliance with more than 600 hours of training.
Her background in dance and Capoeira, teaching both during her twenties, has infused her yoga with the joy and poetry of physical movement. She uses this passion to create dynamic, flowing, dance-like sequences, which she guides her students through gracefully, joining the movements with breath and creating a feeling of lightness, ease and deep relaxation for her students. Her love of handstands and inversions brings a sense of fun and play to her offering.
Her teaching fuses elements of Rocket and Mandala styles, and she often mixes this dynamic practice with Yin Yoga to balance the sometimes physically challenging Yang style of Vinyasa. Her classes often include Yoga Nidra, the sacred yoga of sleep, as a guided meditation for true awakening. She uses breathwork, intention and philosophy to deeply relax and calm the nervous system, encouraging students to let go of the narratives in the mind and to drop into true Being. Her classes encourage awareness energetically, physically and spiritually. Emma creates a positive, nurturing environment for students to learn, experiment and transform through their yoga practice. Her classes empower and inspire students to rediscover their own sacred space which they can return home to again and again.
