Emma was first introduced to the discipline of Iyengar yoga as a child but it was as an adult in a time of family crisis that she discovered a passion for Vinyasa Yoga and its fiery, transformative power.
In twenty years of practice,
and over ten years of teaching she has created her own individual style, inspired by the dynamic flow of breath and movement in Vinyasa Yoga, and an inexhaustible curiosity about the body.
Her classes are guided by her knowledge of anatomy and injury management and a profound awareness of our need for deep rest and mindful connection to our bodies.
Single parenthood led Emma to swap a career in marketing for a flexible career as a full-time yoga teacher for adults, children, and families.
Emma has spent ten years teaching yoga,
focusing on schools and special schools throughout London and the South East and continues to offer tailored therapeutic yoga to children with special needs.
She trained as a Thai Yoga Massage Therapist and offers Thai massage for deep release. She believes passionately in the power of touch to release pain and tension, boost the immune system and promote wellbeing.
In 2017 Emma founded a Training School
for Children’s Yoga Teachers with Siobhan Power and together they run Children’s Yoga Tree – a worldwide community of highly trained and skilled teachers. They offer accredited online Training courses in Children’s Yoga.
When not teaching yoga Emma can be mostly found outdoors – sea swimming, running with her dog Chilli in the woods or bike riding with her daughter on the South Downs.
As a parent of teenagers, Emma cares passionately about improving children’s mental health and creating better access to support for neuro-diverse and trans young people.
