"It was one of the most powerful and empowering afternoons I've ever had, and it has permanently altered my perception of myself and other women in the best way. By having difficult conversations about female expectations, we were able to confront those standards head-on, leaving with a better understanding that society's expectations for us is not how we should be defined. Having girls in all grades participate in this workshop would do great things to empower the women at this school." -Sophie, Episcopal High School

Emily In Your Office

"Emily is a competent, reliable and inspirational yoga teacher who adapts well to the corporate environment. She can easily work with all levels, assess individual pain points and areas of focus, and rolls with the punches when things pop when taking a studio class into the office. Her lessons translate well off the mat, and we often find ourselves discussing her messaging around the break. I highly recommend Emily for your office yoga needs."
