Emily found yoga in college while she was playing basketball for the university of Idaho. However, it was when she finished her career overseas that she was looking for something to fill the void that yoga became a part of her daily life. In Fall of 2008 Emily completed her first training in Acapulco, Mexico with Bikram Yoga. Since then she has completed trainings with Pure Yoga NYC, the Prenatal Yoga Center and Karma Kids Yoga as well as completing a mentorship with Kay Kay Clivio. Emily currently lives and teaches yoga in New York City.
