I learned more with Emily in one class than in 8 weeks of yoga at the V.A.

This was the first class breathing class that I actually made it through without having a nervous breakdown. I have been through years of pulmonary rehab and never once has this material been presented in a way that was helpful. Emily did such an amazing job and presented breath work in a manner that was so open and supportive. She taught the material but left areas available to make it yours and make it work for you, offering modifications, different breath rates and techniques. She was extremely attuned to disabilities and ensured that I was comfortable throughout the class..”

Emily has a profound ability to hold valuable and transformative space for the people she works with. When you are talking with her, you feel completely seen, heard, and accepted. Emily’s extensive training in yoga, nutrition, and other healing approaches is evident as she organically and intuitively weaves her knowledge into her group and individual offerings. She has added an undeniable depth and richness to all of the wellness and yoga trainings we’ve collaborated together on. Combine her experience with a unique ability to bring her fullest presence to everything she does, and you have an incredible healer and fierce advocate at your service!”

As a person with the disease of addiction, I needed help on my path to recovery. Initially, Emily and I worked intensively on nutrition (later continuing with yoga). For the first time, the results I achieved became directly aligned with my effort. My sleep, strength, focus, presence of mind, and overall health increased in important and powerful ways. The personal growth and health I enjoy today exceeds everything I imagined. Honoring my mind, body, and spirit through the path Emily has shown me is a cornerstone in my safety from active addiction, and it has cultivated and nurtured a deep and true sense of happiness, joy, and contentment. Emily has become one of my greatest teachers and coaches, whose gifts have benefited me in unique, profound, and life-changing ways.

To be an athlete, you need techniques to recover and create a mindset to continue and move forward. I thought that I was doing the right thing with my breath work until I attended a workshop lead by Brian and Emily. With their help I have become a better athlete, and breathing is now a huge part of my workouts. I have practiced it since and have become a better runner, lifter and I’ve also learned how to calm my breathing to recover.
As a chef and television personality, taking a deep breath sets your mind to the task at hand, and has made me a better entrepreneur and more relaxed in front of the camera. Breath work is now an important aspect of my day-to-day life.
