In her spare time, Emily enjoys reading, riding her bike, hiking or camping, and listening to live music with friends. Yoga is her biggest hobby as she finds herself practicing almost daily at Tula Yoga. She also teach kids’ yoga through Radiant Beginnings (check out the Yoga Rocks the Park schedule this summer for dates when she will be teaching the kids yoga classes!) Denver has a wonderful yoga community. This summer she is looking forward to trying paddleboard yoga in Steamboat. Emily taught a yoga class for kids here at DFX last fall as well, and hope she will continue her teachings here!
When asked if she had any pets she replied, “No, but I have a terrific succulent garden!”.

Learning is a passion of mine and have taken many continuing education classes throughout the years including topics in sensory integration, neurodevelopmental treatment, assistive technology, cranial sacral, myofascial release, social skills, executive functioning and kids yoga. In my spare time I enjoy going to yoga, hiking, snowboarding, mountain biking, reading, traveling and doing anything with my wonderful dog Shanti. I am also beyond excited to be expecting my first baby in December 2015.
