About The Teacher
Emma has had a dedicated yoga practise for more than10 years. She is a 600 hours qualified Yoga Teacher registered with The Yoga Alliance Professionals. Emma completed her 200 hours of teacher training at Sampoorna Yoga India in 2015. Since then she has taught regularly in London and on retreats in India and Colombia.Emma completed her 300 hours of teacher training with The Yoga People in 2017 and this included modules in Rocket Yoga, Yin Yoga and Tripsichore. She has also trained in Mandala Vinyasa with The Yoga People and has completed an Inversions Teacher Training with Patrick Beach.
Her background in dance and Capoeira (teaching both during her twenties) has infused her yoga with the joy 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 practice and her sequencing.
Emma uses Yin Yoga techniques to balance the dynamic and physically challenging Yang style of Ashtanga Vinyasa. She uses Yoga Nidra methods of intention, philosophy and deep relaxation to calm the mind and deepen the breath. Her classes encourage awareness both mentally and physically, and create a positive, nurturing environment for students to learn, experiment and transform through their yoga practice. Emma’s classes encourage and empower students to find their own ideal practice, and thus create their own Sacred Space which they can return to again and again.
