What to Expect

What you experience in a yoga class will vary greatly. There are many different types of yoga which can be confusing when you are just starting out. It is important to try out a few different studios, styles and teachers until you connect with what feels right for you. My classes offer a fun and down to earth vibe nestled inside a safe space for you to simply be; free of judgement, exactly as you are. I pour my entire heart and soul into every class that I craft for my students, always ensuring they include a careful balance of what you want (play, relaxation, warm fuzzies, challenges, upside down stuff) and what you actually NEED (stability, mobility, breath, stillness). It's totally okay to feel a little nervous when attending your first session but try not to let your thoughts intimidate you, our monkey minds love to create silly stories sometimes. Rest assured you are NOT too inflexible to do yoga. In fact, feeling tight or stiff is the perfect reason to join us! The first step is having the courage to step on the mat and give it a go, give the magic a chance to happen! 

Modifications and variations of all the asana (poses) are offered to suit all abilities and accomodate your unique body. I am here to support and guide you on your individual path to feeling better than ever before. 

I also understand that a class environment is not for everyone - this is why I offer private one-to-one sessions tailored to suit your specific goals and needs. Additionally, I work with sports teams and corporate groups and offer sessions for small groups and special events.  

My Philosophy

When yoga is taught safely, authentically and intelligently it serves as a natural medicine for the body, brain and nervous system. For me, yoga is an innovative fusion of movement, breath, strength, awareness, presence, self love, neuroscience, biomechanics, spiritual connection and ancient philosophy. You may have arrived here with your own perspective on yoga and what it means for you, or perhaps you are yet to experience the magic, either way know this; the practice of yoga is scientifically supported - and it's also bloody ancient. It was originally developed some 5,000 - 10,000 years ago by men! Old men. Old men who's aim was to discover the most effective way to maintain their health and longevity of life. The physical aspect of yoga (asana) was created by Monks to increase strength and stamina in the physical body thus enabling them to sit and meditate for longer periods of time working towards their ultimate goal of 'enlightenment'. MRI scans now demonstrate that regular yoga and meditation practice can change the structure of our brains and significantly improve overall wellbeing. Yoga is beneficial for everybody - EVERY BODY! Whoever you are whatever you do - yoga is good for you! 

About Em

Hey, I'm Em! It's so nice to meet you here. I'm a Hamilton-based Yoga & Meditation Teacher originally from England. I hold a 200hr Yoga Alliance teacher training certificate, a 100hr Rocket Yoga certificate and am currently completing my Advanced Yoga teacher training 300hr. I also mentor upcoming Yogis at leading Yoga studios in Auckland. Prior to qualifying as a yoga teacher, I studied a degree in psychology and integrate this into my yoga practice. Life is good, in fact it’s great! You’ll usually catch me with a smile on my face doing my best to practice gratitude (even in Chair Pose). But it hasn't always been this way; and it's still a masterpiece in progress. I could write a novel about the crazy story of my life, but in essence - yoga saved me, without this powerful tool I would not be where or who I am today. Learn more about my story here.


It's not about the shape of your body, but the shape your life.
