In true love and caring spirit, Kylie & Emily gave us their mind, body and soul at their Inaugural Alpine Spring Yoga Retreat, We, in turn, were beautifully stretched and nourished.  There is now a renewed ‘spring’ in my step which I am enjoying immensely.  I would sincerely recommend their dedicated teachings to all.


I approached with apprehension not knowing what to expect and not having the ideal body type. I felt welcomed from beginning to end by a group of warm, friendly people. Classes and workshops were well planned and provided plenty of support. Combined with exceptional food and a stunning location my only complaint is that it was not long enough. Congratulations Kylie and Emily you did an amazing job coordinating and hosting your first retreat!


I love that both Emily and Kylie walk their talk on every topic that was covered, each sharing their wisdom. Their generosity and abundance on information from the yoga, journaling, meditation, oils, crystals & recipes. Book me in for next year, this should be at the top of everyones to do list.

About Emily

Emily has been a student of many styles of yoga over the past 20 years but particularly loves to teach a strong yet slow flowing vinyasa style, that blends alignment based principles to build strength with a softer mindful, often philosophical side. Emily has over 500 hours of teacher training (including Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Prenatal and Kids yoga), has been teaching for 5 years, with over 1000 hours of teaching experience, and is registered Level 2 teacher with Yoga Australia. 

Emily inspires people to make positive change in the world by helping them to create deeper connections with their own body-mind, each other and the earth. She invites students to utilise the rich variety of techniques that have been passed down by ancient traditions and combine this with modern scientific knowledge about the anatomy of the body and mind. Emily focuses above all on the connection between body, breath and mind and assisting students to ground themselves in their bodies, in the present moment, in order to uncover deeper layers of their being. She teaches both Yang and Yin styles of yoga and is currently undertaking further study in Mindfulness Meditation teaching. She is passionate about bringing the life-changing practices of Buddhist meditation and philosophy, and Earth mindfulness, into as many lives as possible.

Emily loves whole foods, nature, adventures in the mountains, taking action on injustice, teaching and above all connecting people in love and kindness through yoga. You can read more about Emily here.
