Emilie Amstutz inspires her students to find the extraordinary moments in everyday experiences by fully engaging with each other and the world around us. She sees yoga and meditation as tools to help us actively participate in our daily life—and that it’s so much better when we do it together. Community is the cornerstone of Emilie’s mission and in 2014, Emilie opened Borealis Community Yoga in Medford, MA.
Emilie’s classes invite students to connect to each other and to the many aspects that live within us. Her highest priority is respect for the body and it’s magical make-up of physical and emotional energies that allow us to be in this human experience. She draws from a number of yoga styles including Kripalu, yin, and Yoga of Energy Flow. She credits her fellow teachers and students at Borealis, and her mentors Coby Kozlowski, Priti Robyn Ross, Lorin Roche, and Stephanie Marango as constant sources of inspiration.
