Specialty: Astanga Flow and Vinyasa
Background: Emilie studied at Dave’s Astanga Yoga for her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification with John Salisbury and has also studied with Dave and Cheryl Oliver, Desiree Lapree-Grobstein, Jenn Chiarelli, and Scott Page.
Philosophy: Emilie’s classes incorporate opportunities for beginners to explore poses in a playful way and for advanced practitioners to go deeper, while incorporating invigorating and meaningful insights to apply off the mat.
Unique/personal: Emilie started dancing at age two. Growing up around yoga, she was never interested in it because it was too slow and she couldn’t sit still. Instead, she competed in dance competitions which gave her an outlet for the same practices she applies in her daily yoga practice. She tried various forms of yoga throughout college, attending classes with friends who wanted her to try a new class at the gym. After moving to Arizona, she found a community of yogis who exposed her to the philosophy, psychology and spirituality of a practice that turned into a passion.
