Emily believes that yoga has amazing ways of bringing feelings, discomfort, and authenticity to the surface. Every person’s yoga is about something different, through it, everyone seems to be uncovered to their true self and allow themselves to just be. Understanding that nature brings a sense of liberation and joy, Emily has created many retreats that combine adventuring outdoors and practicing yoga away from the studio environment.
