Hello from Emma!

My journey so far...

I first started practicing yoga in 2011 whilst travelling in Australia. As my travels continued to New Zealand, Southern Africa, Jersey and back home, the one constant that remained was yoga. I was hooked!

I returned to my career as a Teacher of Psychology following my travels, a job which I found highly stressful, and I found yoga to be hugely beneficial in managing that stress. My passion for yoga continued to grow, as did my desire to learn more about it and to share the benefit it brought to me with others. It was time to swap ‘Western Psychology’ for ‘Eastern Psychology’!

And so, I left my Psychology Teaching role behind and completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance accredited Teacher Training Course in Goa, India, where I was fortunate to study with teachers who trained directly with B.K.S. Iyengar. Shortly after returning from India, I qualified as a Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Teacher trained with appleyoga. Now my journey continues on this new path as a Yoga Instructor.

My teaching...

I teach a variety of styles including Iyengar inspired Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow and Pre and Postnatal yoga, ensuring that there is something for everyone. The common focus of all of my classes is correct alignment, which is vital for preventing injury, enhancing wellbeing and recovery, and aiding progression of your practice. I like my classes to be uplifting and friendly, creating a relaxed, safe environment in which you can take the time to let go and also feel confident in challenging yourself further.
