Originally from Southeastern CT, Emily has been practicing yoga for about 20 years. She recently moved back home to Niantic, where the energy of the sea called her back after many years of living in the mid-Atlantic with her family. During that time of practicing yoga and experiencing glimpses of the healing powers of the ancient traditions of yoga, meditation and Ayurveda, Emily began studying Prana Flow® yoga, a style of vinyasa flow developed by Shiva Rea, with Maria Garre in 2010. She enjoys practicing all styles of yoga, but is especially inspired by the way Prana Flow® yoga brings peace to the body and mind through movement meditation. It is her goal to help each and every student find a practice that is accessible, balanced and healing.
Emily’s classes provide an inviting and comfortable space for students of all levels to explore their own practice. Her vinyasa flow classes link poses together through movement at a pace that is comfortable for beginners, yet with creative sequencing that practitioners of all levels will enjoy.
Emily earned her 200 hr certification in Prana Flow® yoga in June 2012 from the Samudra School of Yoga at Ananda Shala, Frederick, MD, and her 500 hr certification in Prana Flow® yoga, through Samudra School of Yoga with Maria Garre, Shiva Rea, Sonia Masocco (Ayurveda), Lorin Roche (meditation) and Radhe Pfu (philosophy and Vedic Astrology) in 2015. She has been teaching throughout the mid-Atlantic and Northeast for the past 9 years.
She is currently studying bioregional and western herbalism and folk medicine of European, Celtic, Chinese, and Native American traditions with Brittany Wood Nickerson of Thyme Herbal, and Jade Alicandro Mace of Milk and Honey Herbs since 2019. She integrates this earth wisdom and practices of the wheel of the year into her teaching to help students connect their own healing nature within.
