Emmy is a RYT-200 certified Yoga Alliance Teacher. Her 200-hr training was an Aim True: Integrated Vinyasa Yoga Certification, through the Colorado School of Yoga.
“I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to complete my RYT-200hr study under the inspiring Kathryn Budig and the empowering Gina Caputo. These women, gave me a solid foundation in yoga and a passion for it. Currently, I am working on my 500-hr advanced certification with Tiffany Cruikshank in her program, Yoga Medicine,” shared the instructor.
“I think that is is important for a teacher to be certified. It is one thing when you are doing your own practice and know how your own body feels. It is another thing entirely when you are watching other people’s bodies, thinking of their injuries and conducting a class for them. You need to understand how their bodies move and how their life style effects those movements,” Emmy explained.
“For me, yoga is largely about the breath and body connection. About allowing your body to slow down enough to connect the breath and the body so that when you speed up again.. you stay grounded. It is about figuring out how your body moves, its limitations and its strengths and how you can work to balance the two. Everyone’s body is different.. so figuring out yours is key.”
Emmy hosts yoga classes at various locations on island. Currently, she is teaching at Isle’s Bay Beach Bar and at Ziggy’s in the mountains of Woodlands. Private classes are available on request.

There is no expectation or guarantee that you will be able to do the same if you take yoga with Yogi but it will be an experience you won’t soon forget.
“A real yogi doesn’t follow belief but rather seeks consciousness of self through meditation and movement of yoga exercise. People in the West practice the physical exercise and still hold on to their belief until they are ready to be conscious of self.” explained Yogi.
