The class I’m currently offering ‘Mindful Yin Yoga' is a slow-paced yoga with postures held for longer periods of time - 3 to 5 minutes. The passive nature of long held postures gives time for a deeper journey to unfold; into the meditative aspects of yoga, a bridge toliving life mindfully. Yin Yoga is the practice of floor postures that applies moderate stress to the connective tissues of ligaments, fascia, joints, bones and the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. In my Yin Yoga class I’m often referring to the 12 main Organ Meridians that we are balancing during the practice. I am also using the tools of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) to help to step out of automatic pilot and ‘just be’ in our bodies in the present moment. It’s a meditative approach to yoga promoting inner stillness and awareness. Mindful Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga - Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga. Mindful Yin Yoga aims to help you discover how to use different yoga techniques to live more fully and mindfully, both on and off the mat!I welcome all levels of experience and ability to my classes, which are designed to suit the varying needs and interests of students.
I very much look forward to sharing with you this wonderful practice.

Yoga is my passion because it gives me what i deeply need and am nourished by - it centers me, grounds me and brings me a deep sense of peace. My study and practice of Yoga has helped me develop and grow as a person in positive, real and beautiful ways, this is why i love teaching it!
In 2014 I decided to go deeper with my personal yoga practice by joining the hatha yoga course with Hridaya Yoga, Mexico and completed 120 hrs. Following the courses completion I wanted to train further and teach so I completed a Hatha Yoga and Traditional Tantra 200 hrs TTC in India. Being in India for over 5 months allowed me to explore different styles of yoga with various teachers. Upon returning I joined Uma Dismore Tuli on her Womb Yoga Teacher Training in London in 2016. Most recently I completed an additional 50 hrs of Mindfulness Yin Yoga Teacher Training.

‘I can’t recommend Emilia’s class enough. Mindful Yin Yoga combines long deep stretches, gentle relaxing music, warmth and a cosy nest like room, leaving me feeling deeply nourished and grateful that such a thing exists. Go and feel the Bliss. ‘ Joan W , Jan’18

Below one from Darren on our last 10 sessions of 1:2:1 yoga: 
'Prior to working with Emilia my knowledge and understanding of the ancient art of yoga was pretty limited to say the least.  I must confess, I wasn't a complete "newbie", I have tried yoga before, however, that was ten years ago and only for a limited time period (6 months). I knew Emilia loved Yoga and had recently returned from a long teaching spell in India, so when she offered me the chance of one to one yoga instruction, I thought to myself, why not, let's give it another go.  What's the worst that can happen, my flexibility, posture, blood flow, focus, balance, muscle strength could all improve...actually, that is not such a bad thing - let's do it !!  During the short period of time I have been training with Emilia I have found her to be an amazing instructor (and human being), who is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her subject area.  She has a wonderful positive warming personality, is fantastic to train alongside, very helpful, patient, kind, considerate and most importantly non-judgemental.  She demonstrates each asana (posture) with the correct breathing technique and explains the body area being worked on in great detail. One thing that surprised me was Yoga isn't a just for individuals, there are a multitude of asana's that be conducted by two people (partner Yoga). I Iove this part of the art; working together seemed to bring about a therapeutic connection that allowed me to go even deeper into the asana, further improving the stretch. Even though I would only classify myself as a beginner, I have noticed a significant improvement in my flexibility and have a greater consciousness of my own breath.  Previously it was shallow, whereas now it is much deeper. It sounds a bit strange, but I actually feel younger, calmer and have more energy. To say that I am extremely satisfied with Emilia is a complete understatement, I cannot praise her enough for her efforts in improving my health to date. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking about taking up yoga. I have also been fortunate to receive numerous massages from Emilia, all of which have been incredible; the most recent being a bio dynamic body rebalancing massage. The amount of care, compassion and attention to detail. Emilia places into her massages is quite remarkable.Thanks Emilia- you really are a gift!' Darren S. Dec'16

Below from Mandy from South France where I taught in her retreat centre in June 2016: 
'Over the years I have experienced many yoga classes... I enjoyed Emilias teaching more than any other. Her teaching method is intuitive and gentle. I love her calm and effortless interaction with the class. She is a shining guiding light that touches the soul and heart. Thank you Emilia for sharing your gift. Namaste.' Mandy H, July'16
