Root down to rise up!

Journey to the Heart, Melody Beattie

When you step onto your yoga mat with Emma, you’ll step out of the busy-ness of your day, and away from your to-do list, worries and fears. In her classes you’ll slow down and create a pause. You’ll get out of your mind and into what you can feel in your body and breath right now, in this moment. For Emma, yoga and meditation are practices of self-awareness, and of reconnecting body, mind and breath.

Background

Emma, a keen runner and previously a rower, was introduced to vinyasa yoga during her time at Cambridge University. She loved the energy, strength and flexibility that the practice gave her.

Previously a Geography teacher and a luxury travel consultant, Emma’s all-encompassing life of work and studies resulted in her sacrificing self-care. Looking back, she realises now that she pushed herself to exhaustion and anxiety. She started practising vinyasa more regularly when working as a teacher, enjoying the mental tranquillity of the practice, alongside the physical challenge, which other exercise could not bring. It was this which sparked her passion, and led her to complete her yoga teacher training in 2020.

What students say

“Emma’s instruction style has a great mix of all the good things: great postures, flows, core training and twists/stretches. Above all I loved the spiritual aspect that she weaved into the sessions, making these classes a wholesome experience for body and mind. Emma has this talent to really use her voice to either ignite energy or make you relax. You are well guided all round and get out of her yoga classes with this big smile on your face, a happy heart and a relaxed body. Thanks Emma!” – Sarah

“I never thought I’d enjoy an online yoga class, but I’ve become totally hooked on Emma’s teaching. Emma’s classes offer both a challenging work-out as well as the opportunities for calm, meditative stillness and reflection that I find I often miss in higher-intensity sessions. She creates a warm, welcoming online environment and gives very specific feedback that has helped me to improve my technique. After years of trying out different yoga styles and teachers, I am delighted to have found a teacher who offers a holistic package, and whose guidance often prompts me to new reflections and insights into my yoga practice. “ – Talitha

“Emma is excellent at nurturing both the mind and body during the yoga sessions. I can come to one of her classes after a busy day of work and feel serene and strong. She encourages you to challenge yourself and I have noticeably improved at the more challenging poses as well as my posture and fitness in everyday life. She is a very special teacher and I have been feeling really good with Emma’s classes. Thank you Emma!” – Zoe

“I absolutely love Emma’s approach to yoga — the postures are challenging yet adaptable and her voice is so soothing. She ensures the class works both your body and your mind, with helpful thoughts and guidance that I could take away with me at the end of every session. I am incredibly grateful that I was able to practice yoga with Emma (online) during the past few months.”– Sara

“Emma’s yoga classes are helping me to calm down, re-focus and improve both physical and mental aspects of my well-being. I deeply appreciate the manner in which Emma designs her classes. Each class is a form of Yoga poetry, inspiring me to let the practice influence my thoughts, feelings and actions during the rest of my day.” – Laura

“Emma’s yoga was restorative, strengthening and a a fantastic all round dose of feel good. Having practiced yoga in the past, but not for some time, I particularly liked how Emma’s classes allowed me to push myself while still giving me options to pace myself.” – Luke
