The program was very detailed and well planned/organized. There was a strong emphasis on safety for students as well as teachers. Creativity and finding your own teaching style was also welcomed and encouraged. The variety of classes kept things exciting as well as helping to foster a diverse learning program. The staff was WONDERFUL and truly contributed to my great experience!
Emily Hewitt teaches Kundalini yoga and Yin yoga at Himalayan Yoga Academy. Emily is a long-timer in Rishikesh, one of the first expats who settled in the world's capital of yoga, for whom Rishikesh became the first home. Emily studied Kundalini yoga from her guru Gurumukh. In modern Kundalini yoga, there is probably no teacher more influential than Emily's gurus. Kundalini classes by Emily are active and full of energy. Kundalini meditations, which Emily's students adore her for, are full of love, subtle energies and feelings of oneness with all there is.
Yin yoga classes taught by Emily according to Paul Grilley (who authorized her personally to teach the system) are super-pleasant, relaxing, restorative.The method of Yin yoga is broadly based on modern miofascial theories and ancient Chinese acupuncture. Having done a Yin yoga class with Emily you'll forget about pain and tension in your body, trust us.
Apart from Kundalini and Yin yoga, Emily is a professional in Acro yoga. Acrobatic or Partner yoga is all about having fun in concentration. It's fun because postures of acro yoga, which you practice in a group, let the child within out; it's a concentration practice because acro requires solidity in both your body and mind tissues which consolidates your attention and consciousness.
Also, Emily Hewitt is good in body anatomy and its practical application in yoga and is able to provide precious advice on teaching to both novices and experienced ones.
