Emily Sobel 500 RYT -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 healed her on any levels. She had Lymes disease and had to learn to slow down, focus, and heal. 

Yoga has taught her how to love herself. It has shed light into the deep healing 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. 

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

Emily’s training includes 500 hr RYT 200 ERYT, Rasa restorative certified 1&2, intro to Ayurveda, and bridge to Lotus flow. Always a student thirsting for knowledge she is constantly engaging in trainings, workshops, and studying. She bows down to the teachers who have passed down the sacred teachings of yoga. She is honored to be able to continue the lineage of yoga. Om namah shivaya "universal consciousness is one".

I have transversed the paths of being a bhogi, a rogi, and a yogi across the span of my lifetime. 

I spent years in the Himalayas studying with various teachers.

In 2010 at the Khumba Mela in Haridwar, India after a tough 24 hour straight initiation process I was ordained a swami.

I though consider myself a simple man who bows to the greatness of my teachers and it is by their grace that I teach while I am here until I am once again recalled back to the Himalayas. My home
