Emma is a Yoga and Meditation teacher offering a variety of Vinyasa classes as well as the deeply relaxing practice of Yoga Nidra.
From Power Flow to Slow Flow, and Beginner’s Classes and Workshops, she seeks to offer something for everyone, whatever their physical ability and experience. She has worked with individuals, sports clubs and businesses to spread the practice of yoga, and is always seeking to widen her network.
Her passion for sharing yoga with all who she can stems from her own experience of the significant benefits for mind and body which the practice can bring.
Emma first came to Mindfulness Meditation during her time as an undergraduate studying Geography at the University of Cambridge. Following this, her physical yoga practice began whilst she trained and worked as a Geography Teacher in North Yorkshire. Her commitment to yoga and its importance in her life continued to grow as she moved away from teaching and into the luxury travel industry, working as a European Travel Consultant for a top luxury tour operator in London.
After completing her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Emma stepped back from her job in travel to set up her own business teaching yoga and meditation, Root To Rise. She has since completed her 40 Hour Yoga Nidra training, as well as a course in Yoga Nidra for Mental Health run by The Minded Institute. She will be undertaking training in Yin Yoga in Spring 2021, so watch this space for her new Yin classes too!
Alongside her own business, Emma is also part of The Yoga Kind Collective. The Yoga Kind Collective is a small group of yoga teachers who came together during the first Covid Lockdown in 2020, united by their desire to give something back to the community and to share the practice of yoga, in all its shapes and forms, with all who they could. They offer donation-based classes, and each of their teachers has something different to offer, be that a different style of yoga (not all of which are physical), or a different pace, allowing students to explore what is on offer and to find a practice that works for them.
