When you are grounded it means that you are present in your body and connected with the earth. You feel centred and balanced no matter what’s going on around you!

Your retreats are always a place of nourishment, refuelling the body, reminding us of what we tend to forget in everyday life, being grateful for our health and also, just being able, to be there in so many wonderful moments.
A beautiful weekend of yoga, meditation, mountain views and walks, delicious food and great company. Thankyou Emily for giving so much of yourself. You are an inspiring yoga teacher.
Emily is perfectly suited to her role…warm, caring and does a wonderful job with her yoga and meditation classes. The 12 or so other women were all lovely and there was a pretty instant atmosphere of mutual caring and acceptance. Just the right balance of yoga, chat time, walking or as-you-wish and all felt good. Two days of yoga, meditation, meeting new people and good, clean food leaves you feeling really great. Thank you!
A truly wonderful and rejuvenating retreat. Emily led a beautiful mix of yoga classes and the food was absolutely delicious. It was so lovely to do yoga, meditate, eat nourishing food and hike in a such a picturesque part of the world.
ABOUT YOUR HOSTS
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.
