Emily has the ability to treat every client in a very unique way. The minute you are on her massage table you will feel complete comfort, and as one of her yoga students, you will always have her full, undivided attention.
Massaging since 2009 and teaching yoga since 2015, Emily's curiosity towards the human body has been there from a very young age. She is extremely passionate about the physical body but also, the energy body, which led her towards becoming a Reiki Practitioner. Emily believes in the power of self care, discipline and self love as our most powerful healers. Attention to detail, strength, breath and alignment are expressed through her teachings, with a strong focus on aftercare for every client. Emily opened her yoga studio with Hayley Molina in February 2020, Banff Yoga Practice, located in the Harmon's Lane Building, 111 Banff Avenue, in the heart of downtown Banff National Park. Please visit banffyogapractice.com for more information on the yoga studio and events/classes there.
Born in the UK, Emily is also half Greek. The Rocky Mountains have become her place of inspiration and growth since 2008, when she moved to Banff. Most days, Emily's self practice comes first, which includes, Meditation, Journaling, Pranayama, and Movement. She loves to travel, dip her toes in the ocean, hike, ride bikes, read books, eat good food and walk her dog Bob. Emily is continually learning as much as she can to further her knowledge and improve her skills as a therapist, most recently becoming a breath coach in 2021. She runs wellness retreats internationally, with Greece as an annual retreat venue. Her partner Ryan De Alwis is a Chef and provides all of the gourmet meals on these retreats, where you will transform yourself and find pure, honest connection.
