Emily Sobel ERYT

With a background in art and music, Emily’s approach to teaching yoga is always creative and spiritually fulfilling.

A mother of two, Emily knows how important it is to relieve stress. She believes that yoga is not just for the body as a form of exercise, but an aid in calming the mind. Using the body and breath to bring stillness to the mind is the ultimate goal to achieving true joy.  Her goal is to share the positive effects yoga has had on her. 

Yoga has taught her how to love herself. It has shed light into deep healings that are attainable once the mind is still. She takes great joy in sharing the knowledge that we are all one - we are all connected - we are all nature. 

A focus on alignment is also weaved lovingly into her classes.

Emily’s training includes 200 hr RYT, Rasa restorative certified 1&2, intro to Ayurveda, and bridge to Lotus flow. Emily has taught thousands of hours of yoga and is Rieki trained. Her classes are highly influenced by the Lotus flow style.

Yoga allows us to not only connect with our own minds, bodies and souls, but also to forge a connection with one another as well as the universe. Her Sanskrit name, Sattva Devi, Goddess of Sacred Harmony, is a daily reminder for life to be led by peace and truth from within and Amanda seeks to integrate that notion into all of her classes. Amanda’s laid-back attitude, warm approach, and soulful music help to make her classes fun, spiritual, and free of intimidation. Yogis of all levels are welcome. Namaste!
