In 2014 I began my journey in recovery at Ventura Recovery Center. There I was introduced to the art and exercise of yoga. I didn't think much of it in the very beginning but I was attracted to do more through Emily's compassionate lessons and teachings. I learned to sharpen up on many principles and practices such as; patience, breathing, meditation, commitment - to name a few. I was drawn to her teachings and chose to attend her class a couple times a week, forever thankful for the simple lessons I've learned with Emily. Now 2018, still sober and continuing my recovery. Emily's yoga, among many other things, all contributed to this being possible.
I can’t thank Emily enough for introducing yoga and meditation into my life and the vital role it plays in my recovery from addiction and alcoholism. My practice, through her teaching, has grown to become the most effective way I have found to calm my chaotic mind, allow me to focus and center myself. Her positivity and her patience are so contagious that I feel better no matter what state of mind I go into class with!!
Emily's yoga classes have been an important part of my journey through recovery. Not just the yoga itself, but the principles as well. She really helped establish a sense of inner peace and self discipline that I never had before. Which is very key for people in recovery like myself. And she's a perfect angel.
Emily is the best! Patient and kind to newly clean and sober individuals in a fragile state. Helping them get in touch with their minds and bodies.
