In 2012, while in her senior year at Miami University a life changing event occurred when Emily contracted chronic Lyme disease. The disease not only caused physical and mental discomfort and pain, it also resulted in Emily falling behind in her schoolwork and losing connection with close friends. During this time her father observed that traditional western medicine was not entirely working for Emily and thought that yoga may help alleviate some of the symptoms. Through her teachers teaching’s Emily developed a holistic approach to treating her sickness by incorporating modern medicine, traditional yoga therapeutic remedies and plant-based alternative medicines. Because of this approach to health and wellness Emily no longer has the symptomatic suffering of Lyme disease.
Emily is now vinyasa and yin yoga teacher, kid’s yoga teacher, and journeying towards her Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Emily’s goal is to incorporate all aspects of holistic living and encouraging students to become steadfast in their own practices while integrating them into their day-to-day lives.
This practice calms the mind and nervous system, reduces stress and anxiety, increases circulation, improves flexibility and joint mobility, balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi or prana through meridian stimulation.
