You come to one of my sessions – you’re tired. Stressed. Your mind is s c a t t e r e d.
It’s the end of a long day… week… month.
You possibly have no idea why you’ve come. It just seemed a better alternative to going to the gym and someone told you that yoga is supposed to be “good” for you.
You slowly begin to move your body.
You breathe. You stretch. You open and gradually rinse out the physical tensions of the day.
You feel heat rising. You are challenged in your body and also in your mind as you hold certain poses amid the flow.
As you make more space in your body, you make more space for your breath. The breath flows. You begin to feel better. Your mind is more at ease.
After a while you find you can be still. You sit and let yourself be guided in to meditation using breath techniques and visualisation.
Your breath slows down.
Your mind slowly quietens.
In the pauses between the breath you find a place of stillness. A lightness. A quiet. Where none of the attachments of life or it’s complications are weighing you down.
Even if you experience this for a millisecond … this is a true taste of yoga.
This my friends is what I hope to offer you in my sessions.
…is to help you find a happy balance in your life. An easeful way of living and being. From my experience we cultivate this by finding stillness INSIDE on a regular basis. The tools I use are from the Eastern Philosophies of Yoga and Ayurveda. I also incorporate techniques I have learnt through Personal Development/Self inquiry Mentoring. See here for what a one to one session with me entails.
My only request is that you come with sincerity, commitment and focus to the sessions… And then let go of any result.
My intention is to create a safe space for you to connect to your inner calm, clarity and strength. I believe these are the qualities or “seeds” that exist in every person. It’s due to lifestyle, life experience etc that these “seeds” are not being cultivated and allowed to grow. I use meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques), guided relaxations, yoga asana, mantras (repetitive sound/vibration) and ayurvedic consultation to help you experience your equilibrium.

Emily is ERYT500hrs qualified. She teaches on the ISHTA 200hr & 300hr yoga Teacher Trainings in London. She continues to travel and study with her teachers namely Clive Sheridan, Alan and Sarah Finger, Katrina Repka and her Jyotish and Vedic philosophy teacher Drew Lawrence. She spends time each year in an ayurvedic community in Tamil Nadu, South India where she studies Ayurvedic philosophy and theory with Dr A.R. Ramadas.
I’ve regularly attended Emily’s weekly classes and yoga retreats for over 4 years. Before I met Emily I subscribed to the dynamic, vinyasa yoga methods; however once I started Emily’s classes, my entire outlook on yoga changed. Emily showed me the benefits of a mindful yoga practice. I always leave Emily’s classes feeling more balanced and recharged.
“I’ve been taking group classes, private classes, workshops and retreats with Emily. The reason I choose her over the endless list of Yoga teachers is because she is very special. I find her genuine, true, wise. With her guidance I have deepened my yoga practice and understanding of it especially with regards to through to my individual being.
The after effect of her classes remain with me- and I’m not just talking about the muscular aches I sometimes get due to the deeper and more complex Asanas I always ask her for! She offers a deeper level in her sessions whether they are related to Ayurveda or Philosophical aspects of the practice.”
