Emmalyn wants to live in a world where health is about balance, we find happiness in the little things, our food is cooked with love, and yoga is accessible to everyone. Emmalyn teaches a wide range of classes- from a gentle, beginner class to a rigorous, energetic Prana Flow practice to a clam, soothing restorative class. Emmalyn has completed a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Maria Garre in Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow Affiliate Program in 2012, and a 200 Hour Hatha Flow Yoga Teacher Training with Libby Cox from Yoga Yoga in 2014. She is always working on her own practice and deepening her study to enhance her student's experience on the mat.
In Emmalyn’s classes you can expect to find comfort in your body and leave class feeling accomplished and relaxed. She helps you take incremental steps towards mastering a challenging pose and gives detailed alignment cues to protect your body from injury. During Emmalyn's first teacher training she was introduced to Ayurveda, the medical science of yoga, and is always deepening her knowledge of the tradition. Emmalyn uses Ayurvedic practices in her own life, integrates the principles into her classes, and loves sharing the helpful tips with her students. Emmalyn is in the process of deepening her understanding of Ayurveda and training to be a Yoga Health Coach. When Emmalyn isn’t on her mat she enjoys hiking with her dog Ollie, cooking with her husband, and always loves a hug!
