As an actress, singer, and writer, Emily Palmer leads a creative life that is constantly inconstant. It was her passion for helping people connect more deeply with each other – and with themselves – that led her to the ever-unpredictable life of an artist. This work, and the unstructured lifestyle that came with it, were constantly at war with Emily's naturally structured personality, and she frequently felt stressed, imbalanced, and worn down.
All of that began to change when she discovered Yoga. Her practice gave her a daily opportunity to practice stillness, compassion, courage, patience, and humility. As her mind began to quiet, she found freedom, peace and balance from within, and her life changed powerfully for the better. After experiencing the life-changing power of Yoga, Emily knew she wanted to share it with others!
She received her 200HR YTT from Jessie Fletcher's Dorje Yoga School, where she learned creative, dynamic, sequencing to both challenge, and nourish her students – physically, spiritually, and energetically. Emily is so grateful to be teaching at Ember, where she first discovered her love and passion for Yoga.
