Emerson’s yoga journey began after the crisis of being in the unknown after graduating college. Using yoga as a place of contentment, grounding and strength he followed this passion to Rishikesh, India where he completed his Yoga Teacher Training at Rishikul Yogshala under the traditional study of Ashthanga and Hatha Yoga.
He began to assist his mentor, Kristine Tom, and learned to blend his tradtional Indian yoga style with a Western vinyasa style. He draws inspiration from the breath, appreciation from the offerings of the body, and fun from the blissful potential of yoga to transform yourself and others around you. Emerson, a native to Palo Alto, is happy to teach in the community where he grew up and first experienced yoga.
