JADE MCKENZIE, EVENT HEAD & THE GODDESS ROADTRIP
“Our private group yoga session with Emma was nothing short of AMAZING! Even though we had a range of experience within our group, the session was a wonderful experience for all involved – even for a complete novice like me! Emma has a beautiful way of bringing her calming energy into the session and ensuring that everyone gets as much possible out of their time with her. We didn’t want our session to end and we would have had her back every single day if we could – it was THAT good. Thank you Emma for sharing your gorgeous expertise and talents with us.”
MELANIE SCOTT, OCEAN SHORES
Emma is the real deal who truly cares about the wellbeing of her students with an approach which is very grounded. Her classes have a great balance of pranayama and vinyasa, you come away fully charged yet relaxed. Also with her heartfelt use of the harmonium she will take you on an extended journey of relaxation like no other. Always looking forward to the next session.
KYLIE JOHNSTON, BYRON BAY
Thank you Emma – Your passion for yoga is so clear. Along with your love of teaching, what a beautiful combination! You lead your classes with such love, encouragement & support, always offering a variety of options. Emma, I love every aspect of your classes – for myself, your classes have been somewhat of an awakening experience, to a deeper self awareness, for which I am eternally grateful.
MARIA BERRY, SOUTH GOLDEN BEACH
Choose between dynamic or deeply restful classes. Emma offers soulful versions of both from the most beautiful space on the beach. Practise to the sound of the surf & birds you will be transformed. Emma’s work is profound.
LYNDAL PEAKE, SOUTH GOLDEN BEACH
I’ve been enjoying a weekly session (wish I could make it more often!) with Emma for the last few years. Emma hosts a strongVinyasa Practice with a spectacular savasana with harmonium and vocal accompaniment… so good! It’s a mental and physical snippet out of my week that’s so beneficial and I’m so grateful for. The rolling ocean and birds singing in the background make this a pretty special time all round. Thanks Emma! You’re the best!
TONDI GILFILLAN, SOUTH GOLDEN BEACH
Emma’s passion for practice shines through her teaching and her classes never fail to ground me back into my body & into more stillness & heart. Recommended with much enthusiasm!
ORLA SECCULL, SOUTH GOLDEN BEACH
After trying many classes in Byron and Tweed Shires, I was stoked to find one of the best right on my doorstep. Emma’s classes have helped me learn new skills to navigate motherhood and some difficult times. She is an adept, positive and genuine teacher with a relaxed vibe and a voice like an angel.
BRIDGET ANN MURRAY, BYRON BAY
“Emma is a natural teacher, you truly feel her passion and love for yoga in her class. Creating a nurturing and encouraging space while also continually challenging and motivating me. She is a great inspiration.”
MAUREEN BRACKEN, BALLINA
Natalia Vecchio, South Golden Beach
“I really enjoy all aspects of your class – positions, breathing, meditation, chanting. You have an ability to create an amazingly calm space – even when I’m really pushing my limits in a position, I still have a feeling of calm which you encourage through your guidance. What I love most about your classes, is that I feel safe to try new things and to keep pushing myself, within my limits. You are always watching and adjusting students to make sure they are in the correct position. Every session is different, so I am always looking forward to see what each one has in store.”
“Emma, you gave me new perspectives on life for which I am very grateful. It keeps coming back to me being the cause and cure for many issues. Hope we meet up again.”
“Mum and I really enjoyed your classes. You are a great teacher and very down to earth. You made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We will be back again to attend your class when we are next back at South Golden Beach.”
Justine Grantham, New Brighton
“Em I REALLY enjoyed class today! I always do! Its such an open relaxed fun class with your beautiful, warm, funny, relaxed presence. Even when you walk into class with a floor full of icing sugar and people all flooding in just in time to start, you manage to provide a space where we can all DROP IN.”
TUESDAY EVENINGS 5-6PM
Hatha Yoga, Pranayama & Guided Relaxation:
Each class will focus on a particular target area in the physical body and is crafted to open and balance energetic pathways, as well as impact the mind and heart.
Sacred Sanskrit mantra with live harmonium ends each class for a blissful weekday evening.
THURSDAY 9:30-11AM GENERAL
This class is a traditional hatha yoga class beginning with sun salutations to warm the body but then becoming a more static class where poses are held for a longer period with a focus on breath and functional alignment. Very grounding and designed to create space in the body and mind due to longer holding of postures.
This class balances strength and flexibility, cleanses the body and tunes you in to be able to listen to the messages of the body. It includes basic pranayama techniques, mantra, a short yoga nidra as well as yogic philosophy interwoven throughout.
This earlier morning class is designed to awaken and refresh the body to greet the day feeling grounded and calm. A dynamic class yet adaptable to all levels of ability. There will be a general focus on the major joints of the body to improve flow of prana – our life force energy. A short guided relaxation or savasana to the sound of harmonium and mantra will end the class to imbue your day with peace.
A dip in the ocean after class (merely metres away) will top off your morning and send you cruising into your weekend.
LAST SATURDAY OF EVERY MONTH
YIN YOGA & MANTRA MEDICINE
Yin Yoga, Pranayama, Guided Meditation, Yoga Nidra and Sanskrit Mantra to live harmonium add up to a blissful 2 hours of rejuvenation.
BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL – THESE ARE POPULAR!
CORPORATE OR PRIVATE YOGA SESSIONS
A private yoga session can be a great way to start out when a full class feels intimidating – learn the basics before you commit to a public class.
They can also be wonderful for those recovering from injury, illness or chronic pain as Emma can take it at a pace that is guided by you. Emma can focus on alignment challenges specific to you, target specific outcomes that you’d like to achieve personally and work from where you’re at.
It can also be a really fun thing to do with a group of friends, on a weekend away or pre-wedding activity.
One on one: $75
Group of 3 or 4: $25 / head
Group of 5 or more: $20 / head
