My yoga journey began with a book, placed magically in my path in a way that made it impossible to ignore.

Igniting a passion for the physical practise of Yoga, the practise soon grew to a love of the inner transformation.

Having experienced the healing qualities of Yoga. I have a relentless desire to share this potential change Yoga offers absolutely anyone.

The way I teach, focuses on moving with consciousness, understanding individuality, anatomy and energy. As a guide, I shares knowledge of the energetic layers of the body, incorporating spirituality and Yogic philosophy.

In 2011, I studied Ashtanga Vinyasa with ‘Yoga London’, expanding this knowledge studying Yin and Anatomy, the Ashtanga inspired Rocket system, Tripsicore and Mandala with “The Yoga People’ in 2014. The following year I undertook additional study of Yin Yoga, Anatomy and Traditional Chinese Meridian theory ‘With-Yin’ Yoga. In 2016 I studied with Sarah Powers, Paul & Suzee Grilley.

This year, I was fortunate enough to return to study Yin Yoga, Anatomy and Chakra meditation with Paul and Suzee Grilley in the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains.

I teach with passion and love creating a journey that allows Yoga rather than having to perform Yoga.

Yoga


Explore the real you. The Asana is just the beginning.

Yoga


Explore the real you. The Asana is just the beginning.

Max Strom: "It doesn’t matter how deep into a posture you go, what matters is who you are when you get there."

Emma views the Yoga practise as a form of expression from the inside out. The external expressions of the asana are a reflection of that which we cannot see but feel. Our creativity, our freedom, fluidity, awareness, intention and our heart.

Yoga is an attitude. There is no goal of perfection, of achieving the perfect asana. Yoga is about you in the seat not the physical expression. A journey of discovery offering an ability to learn about yourself. Your true nature.

The asana, the breath, represent effort, love, compassion and how we reside on the inside. The ease, focus and attitude. The posture is the seat from which we can observe. A reflection and a route towards the posture of the mind.

A practise on the mat to journey with you off the mat. To gain knowledge which, is our power.

A Yoga practise with Emma allows freedom without limits and labelling, fluidity, creativity, liberation, inspirational, responsive. A practise which allows a playful attitude from which we can observe all that we are, untangling us from that which we are not. A physical practise is only the beginning.

Viktor E. Frankl: “Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

From this place, we can create space, freedom and happiness between our ambitions and realising these goals. We can not bathe in our light without casting a shadow. Embracing all that we are, seeing that all we need and want, we already are, we already have.

The term yoga comes from the Sanskirt root yuj meaning "to yoke, to bind together", providing the most common translation of yoga as a state of union or the process of unifying the individual self (iiva-atman) with the transcendental self (parama-atman), the union of the body, mind and heart.

Cultivate an awareness of the breath, bringing strength, balance and harmony within. Move between ease and engagement, speed with stillness through complete consciousness. Yoga is not just physical exercise to build strength and flexibility, it is a practise that inspires our experience of the body, mind and heart. 

Be present, move from the power of your core, trust yourself, find peace and courage.
