"To perform every action artfully is yoga." (Swami Kripalu)
In addition to being a theatre director, marathon runner, global traveler, and Wonder Woman fan, Emily is a yogi and yoga instructor. She completed her RYT-200 teacher training at Tapas Yoga Shala in Rock Island, IL, in 2015, and she began working on her RYT-500 at Spira Power Yoga in Seattle.
Recognizing that everyone needs an opportunity to slow down, breathe, and re-connect the mind with the body, Emily teaches classes that use asanas (postures) to hone balance, flexibility, strength, and confidence, and she strives to reach students where they are, recognizing that yoga can be a useful tool for every age, background, and body type - especially actors and artists, whose work often asks them to relax and respond "in the moment."
Emily developed a Yoga for Artists program, specifically designed to teach artists how to use yoga and mindfulness practices to enhance their creativity and artistic work. She has lead Yoga for Artists workshops at conferences and other events including the Region VII Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, the Mid-America Theatre Conference, and the Statera Arts Conference.
Her studio/business (currently in development) is Facing North - named so not only as a reminder of Emily's childhood, growing up in the northwoods of Minnesota (a mere 17 miles south of the Canadian border), but also as an acknowledgment of the importance of the direction north in yogic practice and meditation. Connected to the polar star, North is a symbol of stability, focus, and great conviction. And who wouldn't want a little bit of that in their practice?
And a yoga teacher, too...
