Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka Mat traveled around the world with me from Fiji to New Zealand, Bali, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Iceland and the East Coast before following me to my hometown of Seattle. It didn't matter where I went, when I rolled out my mat to practice I felt like I was home.

A Chicago native, Emilie discovered Vinyasa Yoga in 2004 at her hometown’s Moksha Yoga Center, embracing the practice for its ability to perfectly harmonize her body and mind. Emilie found that her daily practice evolved well beyond her mat, becoming the missing link that instilled patience during times of expectation and self-esteem during times of exploration. Emilie has extensively studied eastern philosophies abroad. She is Yoga Alliance certified after completing the YogaWorks 200-hour teacher program. Emilie’s classes offer a vigorous Vinyasa Flow with a strong focus on intention, alignment, Svadhyaya (self-study), and laughter. She seeks to give everyone the opportunity to connect to their own inner guidance and believes that the lessons of yoga are applicable in our everyday lives.
