One word for Emily is curious! She is also dedicated and has found yoga helpful for her active lifestyle with marathons, triathlons and in her life. Every time she is in class she gives her best and really wants to learn why we do what we do in yoga to find the results she desires in her body to perform better while running. I love that Emily has really brought the teachings of yoga into her life by being present and appreciating every breath, appreciating her family, friends and the gifts in her life.
Yoga does help running – YEAH! She was 20 minutes better in her timing this marathon than her first one a year ago- way to go Emily. Her yoga practice has taught her to be in the moment as she is running seeing that every step is important which has enriched life for her in many ways appreciating how yoga supports her love of running. In her words – they go hand in hand.
Emily will be doing a triatholon for The Lukemia & Lymphoma Society Team in Training – to raise money for this cause this June
