Self care and yoga support
Self care planning guide

Strong self care brings peace and confidence.


I'm Emily Burrows and I teach self care and yoga to big-hearted people. I help folks who have years of practice nurturing everyone around them while being really tough on themselves build their self compassion muscle and make peace with their body.


You’ve come to the right place if you want to make peace with your inner critic, feel better about your body (exactly as it now!), build energy-restoring habits, and practice empowering yoga. I'm here to cheer you on and remind you:


You are worthy of self care and compassion.

Emily Burrows, self care coach and yoga teacher

I've studied health behavior for 15+ years, but more importantly, I know what it's like to be so stressed by busy-ness that hearing the phone ring makes you want to cry. I know the pain of decades of struggle with body image, food, and exercise. Self care and yoga are most transformative when they're weight-inclusive and compassionate.


Commiting to strong self care has helped my clients live with more joy and less stress, on and beyond the yoga mat. You can do it, too.


Let's start now!

Emily will help you understand that you are beautiful, amazing, and capable of doing so much more than you ever thought, both emotionally and physically!

The truth is I didn't have the tools or the motivation to take care of myself when I was drowning. Together, though, we found relative peace on the stormy seas of academia. I am happy, and I am grateful.

I've been to many yoga classes in the last 15 years, and without a doubt this is one of the best sessions I've ever had. Oh, and this was all via the internet! I cannot recommend Emily highly enough!

Within a short period of time working with Emily, I was able to shift my mindset from trying to force myself to "improve my self-care" and feeling like a failure to offering myself options for change, options for feeling better. That might sound simple but, for me, it was life-changing.

I'm so glad I went with the coaching and yoga mix. The way Emily embraces and teaches yoga, you learn so much more than the asanas. It's putting what you talk about in the coaching into practice.

After working together, I am more confident, happier about my yoga practice, experiencing less pain and more strength and flexibility. What I liked best about our work together was that Emily has phenomenal abilities to prescribe yoga poses and practice (intention and rest) that benefited my body and soul.

- Miriam, Chapel Hill, Private Yoga Lessons -

I am feeling stronger, more energized, more peaceful, and full of gratitude. My time with Emily Burrows has been truly transformational.  She helped me set up a regular home yoga practice that I enjoy and look forward to!
