trauma-informed breath work

“I learned more in one workshop with Emily than in 8 weeks of yoga with the V.A.” ~ Libby

“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.” ~ Rachel

“The yoga experience was great, as I stated during the session I have tried yoga several times and really did not get anything out of it. Emily did a fantastic job understanding our injuries, and needs as a couple. She tailored her knowledge of yoga to help us as a couple and be more effective in our daily life. I personally made a better connection with her and yoga than anyone else in the yoga field. Her techniques, approach and knowledge made sense to us and what we needed in our relationship.” -CAMO (Challenge Aspen Military Ops) participant

"Emily truly has a passion for seeing people conquer their fears and anxieties and helping them grow into who they were created to be. A highlight of my time with Emily was the cold water dunk. I was a little nervous at first but she encouraged me until I was ready. It was truly the most incredible experience. It made me want to do it again and again. It has been life changing. Because I could override my desire to jump out of the cold water through breathing... I can now use that same technique in life when fight or flight kicks in. It has also given me the courage to face other challenges or discomforts. Emily helped me to focus on recreating healthy neuropathway's in my brain, and breakdown the unhealthy patterns. I am so thankful our path's have crossed. She is an invaluable resource." ~ Michelle Underwood Carbondale, CO.

“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.”~ Darren, Carbondale, CO

“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!" ~Cara Maiolo, Owner of Luminary Retreats
