About Em K Yoga

Em K Yoga; where cutting-edge science meets traditional Eastern healing - without the bullshit.

So let's get this straight; Yoga is suitable for all; there are no prerequisites. If you have a body - you can do Yoga! My greatest wish is to spread awareness about this powerful untapped practice and help to make it accessible to every body - EVERY BODY. 

My personal journey to healing quickly became an obsession with wellbeing. How can I feel better, how can I be better, how can I do better? I never understood exactly how or why, all I knew was when I did Yoga, everything felt better - so much better. My mental, physical and emotional health improved profoundly.  I knew then, my purpose was to equip others with this tool, to share the invaluable gift of wellbeing. So, I packed my suitcase and my panic attacks and travelled across the world where I was immersed in an intensive program to become a qualified and registered teacher.

I have now been teaching for four years and practicing for sixteen. With a strong background in Iyengar Yoga and a passion for what I like to call 'functional flow'; my teachings embody multi-style approach using principles of neuroscience to craft fun and meaningful experiences for you. Through a combination of movement, breath techniques, myofascial release, neurodynamics, body alignment, mindfulness, therapeutic asana, active stretching and simple meditation - I will guide and empower you to cultivate the very best version of yourself - on and off the mat.

What to Expect

My classes offer a fun and friendly vibe filled with a warm bunch of perfectly imperfect humans simply arriving on their mats with a shared aim of self development.  My classes are a safe space for you to just be - free of judgement - exactly as you are right now. It is okay to feel a little nervous when attending your first session but try not to let your thoughts intimidate, deter you or fill you with expectation. You are NOT too inflexible, too old or too busy to come along. In fact, being tight, stiff or sore is the perfect reason to join us! The first step is having the courage to show up and give it a go!

Modifications and variations of all the asana (poses) are offered to suit all abilities and accomodate any injuries or conditions. Blocks and other supportive equipment is available to ensure the practice is accessible to all levels and abilities. 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-on-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. Please contact me for more info! 

My Philosophy

When Yoga is taught safely and authentically it acts as a natural medicine for the body and mind. It is an innovative fusion of movement, breath, postures, neuroscience and ancient philosophy. Yoga is a powerful practice fully supported by science - and it's bloody ancient. It was actually 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 body thus enabling them to sit and meditate for longer periods of time working towards their ultimate goal of 'enlightenment'. Regular yoga practice has been shown to significantly improve overall wellbeing, a magic wand for your physical, mental and emotional health. It is beneficial for every body - EVERY BODY! Whoever you are, whatever you do - yoga is good for you!

Hey, I'm Em. I'm 31 and I'm originally from England. I hold a Degree in Psychology, a Diploma in Nutrition and recently became a Mummy to my little Isabella. Life is good – actually, it’s great!
