Welcome, I’m Emily!
I’m passionate that the power of yoga is learning to connect with each moment exactly as it is.
To still the mind so we can truly feel our bodies from the inside out – from the most intense to the most subtle sensations.
Through this deeply physical and grounding practice we also connect with our thoughts, emotions, our relationship with others and to the awe-inspiring, yet simple, beauty of the world around us.
I am a qualified yoga teacher and offer yoga and meditation classes, workshops and retreats in and around the alpine town of Bright, Australia and overseas.
CONNECTION WITH EARTH
The practice of yoga has always been intertwined with the symbolism and elements of nature. My grounded, earth focused style and specific seasonal workshops offer a unique opportunity to deeper your re-connection with the earth’s energies and commitment to living sustainably.
CONNECTION WITH COMMUNITY
We dedicate our practice to the benefit of all beings, acknowledging that while we practice for our own wellbeing this in turn naturally ripples out to our community. I include compassion and kindness practices in class, as well as being in service to support freedom, peace and equality in the world.
CONNECTION WITH SELF
Yoga and meditation offer us an embodied mindfulness practice. An opportunity to slow down, listen deeply and connect with our body, mind and breath. Through mindfulness practices I guide you to greater presence in all aspects of life, through a deepening of our awareness of sensation in the body.
I acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which I live and work. I pay my respects to their elders past, present and emerging. I thank them for their custodianship of this beautiful land.

I attended Emily’s first yoga class in May 2014 and have continued to be taught by Emily in yoga classes, meditation classes and a retreat in January 2019. Emily explains and demonstrates concepts with a holistic approach, in a way which is available to any level of practitioner.

I am always super excited to get up at 5.30am for Emily’s wonderful yoga classes. Her approach is really inclusive, welcoming and holistic. I always come away feeling not only stretched but also looked after and with some extra tools to tackle everyday life outside the yoga studio. She leads her classes in a friendly, open and approachable manner and her deep knowledge and love of what she teaches shine through.Lucy Snowden
