Emma trained at the London College of Dance (BA Hons) and was also introduced to Yoga and Pilates.
It was only when injury struck, that her passion and love for both disciplines grew. Finding yoga was like coming home, it held all similar grace, power and strength that she had felt when she danced but without the sense of competitiveness.
Yoga and Pilates have allowed Emma the space to breathe and she hopes that she can encourage others to simply love to move, to love themselves and find love within.
