Private yoga eliminates the distraction of comparison and helps you build a practice based on deep self trust. The ripple effects of a highly intuitive yoga practice can change how you treat your body, talk to yourself, and relate to other people.

 

Practicing yoga away from group classes helped me heal knee and foot injuries, cope with insomnia and depression, and begin to LIVE in my body instead of fighting it!

 

You'll learn to trust your body and dig deeper into the teachings of yoga both on and beyond your mat. Nothing helps you fall in love with your yoga practice quite like one-on-one attention.

 

What we’ll do:

  • In our first session, we’ll explore your current movement and self care patterns, to see what might benefit you most in your yoga practice.

  • We’ll meet over video chat.

  • You’ll learn meditation and breathing practices, and highly tailored asana (pose) sequences. And of course, deep rest and relaxation.

  • Between sessions, you’ll dig into yoga “homework” that helps you build an at-home yoga practice that grows with you. This is where progress happens!

"Emily helped me connect with my heart and my body, to slow down, to listen to myself, and to follow my instincts. I emerged from our session feeling calmer and more grounded. When anxiety arose the rest of the day, I was able to notice it, say hello, and let it go. 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."

Get ready for the best gift you have ever given yourself!

 

The biggest challenge I faced before contacting Emily for private yoga lessons in Chapel Hill was I knew that I wasn’t ready to participate in a class but felt a real need to strengthen my body and spirit. I was embarrassed about what I felt were my lack of strength and abilities. 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.

 

The most important thing I would tell a friend about working with Emily is get ready for the best gift you have ever given yourself! Trust Emily to guide and support you through a beginning practice in yoga to a practice that will serve you daily, enrich your life and your health.

 

This was an incredible journey of practice and self care that Emily facilitated with her knowledge, understanding and positive intention.

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.

 

I decided to give myself/have my husband give me the gift of a private yoga session with Emily Burrows for Mother's Day. Best decision I've made in a while. She has a true gift for teaching in a beautiful, authentic, and heart-centered way. As a busy mom of a demanding 10 month old, I've been feeling depleted and physically worn. Emily helped me connect with my heart and my body, to slow down, to listen to myself, and to follow my instincts. I emerged from our session feeling calmer and more grounded. When anxiety arose the rest of the day, I was able to notice it, say hello, and let it go. 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!

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!  I also learned how to incorporate yoga into my work routine so that I am less tired and achy at the end of the day.  She listened and figured out what would work best for me personally, so that yoga is easier and more fun.  I am feeling stronger, more energized, more peaceful, and full of gratitude!

My 2nd knee replacement recovery was much quicker than the first and I think that Emily's techniques assisted in that quick recovery.

 

"At Home Yoga with Emily was such a treat to myself during my recuperation from my first Knee Replacement Surgery.  My knee itself was doing great but I couldn't get back to walking without back pain.  Over the years, I started to bend over due to my knee pain and when it came to walking I just couldn't seem to increase my steps.

 

Emily was so sweet.  She listened to my complaints and didn't make me feel like a weakling.  Emily taught me some methods from Yoga that helped me stand and relax the back as well as stretching that really helped with strength.  Instead of crying in pain, Emily made me laugh at myself and begin to love life again.

 

What I liked best about working together in my home learning to use the chairs and other household fixtures to support me while working out or just meditating now that I can't kneel to get down on the floor.

 

My three sessions with Emily helped me build strength back so I could have the 2nd Total Knee Replacement on my other knee 4 months after the 1st.  My 2nd knee replacement recovery was much quicker than the first and I think that Emily's techniques assisted in that quick recovery.

 

I would tell, and have, friends and acquaintances about Emily and how easy she made hard work easy and fun."

I am more confident in making decisions for myself. I feel more at peace with where I'm at right now. I've learned to be more present and to enjoy the moments. 

 

"The biggest challenge I faced before contacting Emily for self care coaching and yoga lessons was a general sense that something was lacking in my life. I have been a stay at home mom for a good deal longer than I originally anticipated. I had this feeling that I had to figure out "my purpose in life", that I was lost or wasting my time here.   

 

After working together, I am a lot kinder to myself and better at knowing what I need in any given moment. I am more confident in making decisions for myself. I feel more at peace with where I'm at right now. I've learned to be more present and to enjoy the moments. I'm learning to see the journey as the purpose rather than some "end". And I'm enjoying staying at home for now. I still don't know the next "step". I guess I no longer see it as a next "step" but rather what is calling to me now or what adventure do I want to try out next?   

 

What I liked best about our work together was it was fun! I guess I expected it to feel more like work. Emily models intention, humor, self care, and self compassion so well. She asks the right questions and then provides completely non-judgmental encouragement to get you where you want to be. And the yoga was such a surprise! I'd been taking classes with Emily and wasn't sure if I should do just the coaching on the side. 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.

 

The most important thing I would tell a friend about working with Emily is just try it. I waited awhile before I signed up with Emily. I had a general sense of dissatisfaction, but wasn't sure what area of my life to ask Emily to work on. You don't need to know! Part of Emily's magic is asking the right questions and recommending the right work so you can figure out what you most need. Some of the most powerful things we worked on together were things I never even thought of before starting with Emily."

I find Emily's yoga classes to be uplifting, calming, and very welcoming!

 

"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!"

Emily's encouragement and 'permission' to modify my practice has been an incentive to me to keep going. 

 

"Health 'issues' can be the enemy of any health and wellness plan, and even the gentle discipline of yoga can seem fruitless. Emily's encouragement and 'permission' to modify my practice has been an incentive to me to keep going. She is interested in you and the pose that may address your need, and what you may need to modify to gain a benefit, rather than in just the pose. This does not mean 'anything goes.' She's an excellent, well-prepared, and understanding instructor to whom teaching comes naturally. And she believes in what she teaches and in those she teaches."
