200 RYT; Barre Above
Emily swore she would never step into a yoga studio after her first class. Her cousin convinced her to come and try it out, but Emily could barely last twenty seconds in down dog. But seeing that Emily’s family loved yoga and encouraged her to keep trying it, she eventually decided it was “the workout plan” for her – she has never looked back! Yoga became a way for Emily to focus on a strong and healthy body without too much impact on her joints, and it has helped alleviate back and hip pain.
Emily gained her yoga certification through a Baptiste Inspired program in 2018, along with her barre certification through Barre Above. Emily teaches her favorite class, yoga sculpt, where she incorporates exercises with light weights, plenty of cardio, and all of the favorite yoga poses. She loves helping her students become the strongest and healthiest versions of themselves that they can be.
Emily is a 5th Grade teacher here in Fort Wayne, and is very active in her church and Bible study. She spends most of her free time with her husband, Jesse, and their seventy-pound Goldendoodle, Betty. Emily loves to cook, bake, and spend time with the people she loves most.
