Teacher Info: Emily Flaherty

Emily started practising Yoga in 2008 as a way of managing her mental health and the stresses of University life. She began to attend a kundalini yoga class and fell in love with the practise. As a result she decided to train at the Rosedale school of yoga in North Yorkshire, accredited by the Yoga Alliance. The teacher training incorporated kundalini and Hatha yoga practises, as well as Ayurvedic studies, nutrition and yoga Philosophy. This comprehensive 2 year course gave Emily a real passion for many aspects of yoga. On graduation in 2012 Emily took a trip to India where she visited various ashrams and monasteries and immersed herself in the culture, and the various practises of yoga.

Over the years Emily has developed a deep passion for mantra and Bhakti yoga (devotional singing). Emily has incorporated sound with yoga developing a gong yoga style with her partner and also teaches meditation and relaxation sound journeying. Emily has found over the years that kundalini has helped her gain a well balanced lifestyle.

Class Info:

Emily offers Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini known as the yoga of awareness is an uplifting blend of physical and spiritual practices. Kundalini is the feminine energy that lies coiled at the base of the spine.

Emily uses the teachings to help the practioner raise their kundalini energy by journeying through the chakra system and energy channels and asserting specific postures in line with a Kriya - a set practise for a set purpose. 

Emily’s classes incorporate dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, Asana (posture) and the chanting of mantras, such as Sat Nam, meaning "truth is my identity." 

The key benefits of kundalini yoga include, increased physical strength and vitality, expanded awareness and relaxation of the nervous system.

Emily has a warm and nurturing approach to her classes, there is always a challenge and a well deserved relaxation. On leaving her classes students often feel lighter, clear and at peace.
