Emily discovered aerial arts in 2010, and it only took her two classes to be seduced by the silks. Aerial arts didn’t just flip her upside down: it flipped how she saw herself upside down. Emily had never seen herself as athletic, but the silks changed all that. She loves the power of aerial arts to change your perspective, and challenge pre-conceived notions of what you’re capable of. Through OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training, workshops, and an ongoing OFSY apprenticeship with Megan Hornaday, Emily gained the skills necessary to share aerial arts with a new generation of aspiring aerialists.
Emily draws on her experience teaching yoga to safely guide students into the air, focusing on building body awareness and self-trust. She challenges her students to push beyond their comfort zone, and supports students both emotionally — with an open heart & infectious joy, and physically — through spotting techniques. Emily loves working with beginner students. Helping them establish good habits that yield safe, healthy, and beautiful progress in the months and years to come is her priority.
Join Emily in October as she hosts our Silks 101 workshop.
