About This Event
Join Emilie as she guides you through a Yoga session to start your day!
Over 14 years ago Emilie engaged in her first yoga practice. It was then, she expresses, that her journey began one breath at a time, one movement at a time, and, for the first time, with stillness as an ally not an enemy.
Yoga has naturally became a part of Emilie’s everyday life; the day is not complete if she doesn’t practice in one way or another; whether at a studio or in a home practice, the energy that comes from integrating breath with movement and from challenging herself to be still in mind and in body never ceases to amaze her.
In Fall of 2009 Emilie completed a 200 hour, Yoga Alliance certified teacher training in Edmonton. She believes the person she was then was broken down into many pieces and re-sculpted. The new insight and perspective gained, also brought acceptance of who she is and the desire to guide others on this path of self-awareness, acceptance and compassion.
Emilie has completed certifications in Pre-natal yoga, kids yoga, senior’s yoga, & Trauma Sensitive Yoga. She completed a 300 hr Yin Yoga certification with Paul & Suzee Grilley in June 2015. She loves sharing this functional approach to yoga to help students tune into their own unique needs as well as sharing meditation practices learned and encouraged to help one tune inwards daily.
Meditation and mindfulness practices has informed the way she lives her life and helps others find peace and calm in the midst of busy, demanding lives. Studying with internationally renowned meditation teachers Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach, she brings a deep level of knowledge and understanding to the ancient wisdom of meditation.
