Emily took her first yoga class in 1997 and knew immediately that yoga would always be an important part of her life. Interested in the mind/body/spirit connection, she sees yoga as an important tool for fostering overall health and encouraging personal growth. After experiencing the benefits of yoga to alleviate stress and gain a sense of calm and contentment during her career in academia and during pregnancy, Emily realized the importance of sharing yoga with those around her. She enjoys practicing yoga with her children, and they inspired her to enroll in the teacher training at Blue Point Yoga with Sara Doyle. Emily strives to create a welcoming atmosphere that is free of judgement, competition, and expectations. She is a New Englander turned Southerner who lives in the Triangle with her husband, two children, and way too many adorable pets.
