Emily began her yoga exploration almost 30 years ago. Always fascinated my meditation and mindfulness she was drawn to yoga early on. Life, career, and family pushed back her dreams of learning more about yoga until 12 years ago. She took her first teacher training 12 years ago and has been diving in ever since. Teaching for over a decade, she continues to be a student of yoga. She has studied with Janet Stone, Max Strom, Paul Grilley and continues to mentor and learn for Janet Stone Yoga. Having assisted many trainings and led retreats this will be her first co-led teacher training with Stephanie Birch.
Yoga’s roots are deeply important to Emily, as she believes the ancient practice helps our modern world. She has over 1000 hours of training and has taught over 3000 classes. Emily maintains student first for her and is always in awe of how humans show up for practice and life.
Emily is deeply rooted and has an understanding of yoga’s ancient traditions. she brings power and play to her vinyasa classes. Certified to teach many forms of asana: yin, kids, teens and prenatal. She finds her teachers come from many experiences. Including raising her children, observing others and her deep friendships.
Most important to Emily is that others always have a soft place to land, whether in a training with her or class. This does not mean easy, but it does mean safe and honored.
Steph took her first yoga class in 2008, she was a longtime athlete looking for a challenge. From her first class, she was hooked on the physicality of the practice. After her son was born, a time that weaved with uncertainty and big life changes, she connected with yoga on a deeper level emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. She discovered that yoga was a tool for connection and learned to reconnect with herself through breath, movement, and meditation. She teaches because this practice brought her back to prayer and help restore her faith in the human spirit.
Steph believes in being a student of life. She has 2000+ training hours from a variety of teachers; from traditional yoga to modern modalities. She has co-led two trainings and this will be her first with Emily. Steph has been teaching yoga full-time for 8 years in Northern California, led multiple yoga retreats and workshops worldwide. She is passionate about helping people feel connected to themselves in a meaningful way and share the tools that her teachers have passed on to her.
What you will find in Steph’s classes is a mix of science, spirit, and play. Her classes are inspired by flow state, in other words “getting in the zone” as she values discipline and growth — in which she believes builds character, resiliency and humility — a recipe for faith. You’ll explore a mix of functional movement and rhythm with the intention to keep you agile for life.
Steph is thrilled to be co-leading with Emily at Radiant Yoga. Steph says, “Emily and I both feel it’s important for people to have a soft place to land, on and off the mat.” Steph’s hope and intention this training is that students come with curious minds and open hearts — to learn, grow, and turn on a little light in the world.
