Emily is an Idaho native, outdoor-loving gal who was first introduced to yoga in 2009, using yoga as cross training for long-distance running. Emily has been running races around the Idaho foothills and the Northwest for almost 20 years and has a true passion for getting out into nature and moving the body in a way that feels good from day to day.
After experiencing a large amount of physical burn out and consistent running injuries, Emily decided it was time to take the next step in her self-care by recommitting to her yoga practice. In the Spring of 2021, Emily completed her 200-hour YTT through Boise Om School and has been teaching ever since.
“Recommitting to my yoga practice has provided the space to slow down, embrace the moment and listen to how my heart, mind and body are feeling from day to day. Yoga has allowed me to become more vulnerable and open with my feelings and to be more accepting of the parts of myself I always saw as flawed.”
As a yoga teacher Emily is committed to sharing this practice with students of all ages and abilities, enjoys working with athletes and aims to consistently provide a safe space for students to grow mentally and physically. Away from the studio Emily loves to travel with her husband and doggos, along with growing food in the garden and cooking for friends and family.
