Emma was first introduced to yoga at the age of 13 for injury prevention and recovery as a competitive swimmer. Yoga flowed in and out of her life until the age of 27 when she attended a class in Nicaragua and fell completely in love with the practice. For the first time, she understood the magic of yoga as a means of deeply connecting with and healing the body, mind, and spirit. This experience completely altered the course of her life. Emma left her career managing a private swim school and journeyed to Alicante, Spain to complete her 200-hour Hatha training. Merging her love for yoga and passion for working with kids feels like an exciting next step for Emma!
Outside of teaching and practising yoga, Emma works as an autism play-therapist in the Mount Pleasant community. She enjoys daily (year-round!) swims in the ocean and spending time in nature. In her free time you can find her reading, cooking, writing poetry, and painting.
