All of Emma's classes have an Ashtanga Yoga inflection and borrow from the postural sequencing of Ashtanga’s Primary and Intermediate Series. Many poses will be repeated each week so that you open and strengthen your body safely, while also gauging progress week by week. While repetition will occur, each class will also vary and incorporate different postural and energetic focuses.
