Emmy (YA EYT-200) has been practising yoga for 16 years and in 2007 she trained with QiYoga, which interweaves Hatha yoga with QiGong. Since then she has studied further with teachers who continue to influence and inspire her- Simon Low, Max Strom and Kate Ellis among others. She teaches with good humour and openness, and her classes draw from a range of styles from Yin to Ashtanga. Yoga has taken her to teach in Japan, India and France and she has recently been busy introducing yoga and mindfulness to schools.
Emmy’s classes emphasise the co-ordination of breath and movement, with a focus on mindful alignment and embodied awareness. Emmy believes in the transformative power of yoga both on and off the mat and that yoga is for everyone irrespective of strength, flexibility, age and stress levels, so no matter where you are on your yoga journey, you will be looked after.
Emmy is also a visual artist and environmental activist exploring the relationship between yoga, meditation, creativity and our relationship with the world around us. A qualified art teacher, she facilitates arts for wellbeing workshops to empower others to let go of self-judgement to create freely. Working to protect our planet is an issue close to Emmy’s heart. The Plastic Prayer Flag Project is an ongoing initiative in collecting plastic waste from the streets and beaches to generate discussions on how to reduce our impact on the earth and to create art through workshops and exhibitions. These have been run for families affected by the Grenfell fire and at a number of schools.
