My journey onto the mat…

Emma’s yoga journey started in 2012 after delving deeply into the Vedas and other ancient yoga texts. The philosophy of yoga still remains one of her deepest interests and this is the grounding of all her teaching. Initially Emma practiced Yin, Restorative and Aerial Yoga and then in 2013 she went to her first Ashtanga Yoga class and found her passion.

Emma has had a 6 day a week Ashtanga yoga practice since 2013 and currently practice up to Advanced A series. She has practiced ashtanga through two pregnancies and postpartums.

Emma has trained in Ashtanga yoga with Manju Jois and is authorised to teach Ashtanga Yoga by him, which is the highest accreditation there is in Ashtanga. She is also certified by Manju in yoga therapy, primary and second series as well.

Emma is the only yoga teacher in Cumbria and the surrounding areas able to teach Ashtanga Yoga which is an incredible gift to be able to bring to The Yoga Studio Carlisle.

This enabled Emma to found Ashtanga Yoga Carlisle and run Cumbria’s Ashtanga Yoga Mysore programme here at The Yoga Studio.

‘I found yoga at a time in my life where I needed some direction and some structure, the discipline Ashtanga gave me helped immensely. It also is an outlet for my rather fiery yang personality, so consequently I like to work with strength, stamina and stability. Yoga keeps me chilled and I love breaking the practice down for students, making yoga accessible and available for all.

I am always a bubbly source of energy in the studio and always have 5 minutes if you need a cuppa and some time out. The studio is a community and we are here for you.

My first ever yoga class was Aerial Yoga here at the studio with Martin in 2012 and we now are married, have our gorgeous kids and own the studio together. What a wonderful journey its been.

My heart and soul go into my classes and I look forward to kickstarting your yoga journey with you, and helping seasoned practitioners grow and entwine practice into their daily lives.’

My advice to students is…

“Yoga is a tool that helps you deal with life, stay consistent in your practice and you’ll reap incredible benefits. Go slowly into yoga and be joyful. Be curious not serious!”
