EMMA STERN

Emma first came to yoga because it was one of the only physical education classes at her performing arts high school that did not intimidate her. To her surprise, movement, meditation, and asana replaced typical teenage vulnerabilities with feelings of strength and self-worth.

In 2014, after a decade of practice, Emma completed her 200-hour teacher training at Laughing Lotus in San Francisco. She is deeply invested in creating a safe space for all bodies and has studied trauma-informed yoga, which has hugely influenced all of her class offerings. Expect Emma’s yoga classes to be high energy, light-hearted, and filled with accessible challenges. Her goal is for you to leave every class sweaty and smiling. Off the mat, Emma is currently a grad student studying somatic psychology. She bows down in gratitude to her teachers and mentors, Jasmine Tarkeshi and Mary Strong-Sullivan.
