Emily is a qualified yoga teacher with a background in international studies & human rights activism and a love of adventures in the mountains. She is currently based in Bright, Victoria Australia and offers yoga and meditation classes, workshops and retreats in the surrounding area and further afield.
“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. Through this deeply physical and grounding practice we also connect with our thoughts and emotions, our relationship with others and to the awe-inspiring, yet simple, beauty of the world around us.”
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.
Emily is passionate about making the world a better place and improving the way we relate to each other and the environment. She believes that yoga has a big role to play in helping people develop deeper connections with their bodies, the people around them and the earth.
‘Yoga’ means to yoke, or union, and this ancient system of philosophy, movement, breathing, self-inquiry and meditation facilitates a deeper connection between body and mind. The postures, movement and breath work in yoga can assist to keep the body healthy, flexible and strong, improve digestion and circulation, reduce tension and develop calmness in the mind.
Retreats are an opportunity to deepen your practice in a supportive yet intensive environment. Join Emily and her collaborators for life-changing experiences both in Australia (in the stunning Alpine region) and overseas…
I wish I could give you some constructive feedback, but it was perfect for me. Keep on being you and shining your bright loving light – you are an exceptional teacher.Jen
