As a busy working mum of two, I missed my yoga and pilates classes but found I needed regular, short, accessible movement practices more than ever. Throw in the pandemic, and on-demand classes (rather than hour long classes, or live on Zoom) were the only way I could make movement happen.
Not because you "have to".
Not because your physio said so.
Not because it's time to "get your body back", lose weight or "fix" yourself.
There is nothing to fix.
You are worthy and whole exactly as you are.
Rather, after 15 minutes of movement, you feel better.
You feel more present, strong and free.
With 5 minutes of mindfulness, you're less reactive, more accepting and flexible with what life presents us. Plus, it's fun.
We don't take ourselves too seriously. We go easy, we work hard if we feel like it, we come to respect and even love our bodies and our selves just as we are.
Not because you "should"
i'd love to hear from you. Come chat with me
You miss yoga and pilates but can't 'make it happen'
You want to (re)start regular movement but don't feel confident
You barely press play on an online class and the baby wakes up
Your bub is now like 3 years old, but you have less time for yourself than ever
You're pregnant and want to keep practicing, rather than being treated like you're broken, or doing boring modifications
You want to be strong and pain free but not smash yourself or pay too much for something you don't use half the time
You're sick of googling/You Tube instructors you don't rate
You like yoga AND pilates and have been told you probably would benefit from mindfulness but can't find it all in one
You want to be motivated to move and challenge your physical body with zero b'shit diet culture/weight loss/'bounce back' chatter

I'm always posting any face-to-face classes I'll be teaching around Melbourne's inner north to my socials so check there.
If you have any questions, or want to explore the potential for private classes or a special offering for a mother's group or anything - that sounds fun! I'm keen. Send me an email.

Got 5 minutes? I have a practice for you. Got 10? 20? There are so many options. This is my specialty.
But I even have 20+ min classes sometimes! For, you know, those unicorn days.
Em’s classes are the best. Super welcoming and accepting. Great tunes. Great laughs. I love the combination of aerobic workout and yoga flow.
Em makes everyone feel so comfortable (babies included) and creates such a warm environment that any nerves are soon forgotten. I have always left Em’s class feeling strong, stretchy and refreshed.
Can I report I went to Em's class and it was brilliant. Great teaching, positivity flowing in the room, and I felt like I actually exercised.
