"The goal is not to tie ourselves in knots–we’re already tied in knots. The aim is to untie the knots in our heart." - Max Strom


In my yoga classes and private yoga lessons I hold a friendly, lighthearted space for people to experience the loveliness and truth in their bodies and selves, exactly as they are. I'm a firm believer that there is no one way to practice a pose, so I give plenty of room for you to explore what feels right for you and ask questions.


Forget the notion that you have to be young and bendy to practice yoga. Any body doing yoga is a "yoga body!" 


Mindfulness and yoga philosophy are integrated into my self care coaching approach, and I provide brief, digestible yoga videos and meditation audio recordings to support my clients' individual needs.


As of January 2020, I'm no longer teaching in the Triangle. I'm moving to Berlin, Germany and plan to open up space for new private yoga clients over video chat beginning in the spring.

"As a mindful yoga instructor, Emily takes the time to meet each student where they are. This means offering assists, helpful variations for each skill level, and gentle reminders to stay present with our practice. I find Emily's yoga classes to be uplifting, calming, and very welcoming!"
