Emily Hewitt, kundalini yoga / yin yoga / acro yoga expertat HImalayan Yoga Acad
Featured Teacher

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.

Reviews by graduates

It has been a long five week course from 06:00-19:00 mon-sat, day in and day out with not much sleep in between. We all came here thinking we had an idea of what yoga was and quickly discovered we literally knew nothing. But that seed of nothing has now become an internal blossom slowly working its way to the surface- preparing its beauty for the world outside.

The growth and transformation that has occurred here will continue to shape our lives from this day on. The awareness that has been cultivated inside will continue to shine light on the darkest times and keep afloat the pursuit of happiness.

To the friends I made here, may you all go out into the world with new flames inside, sharing the wealth of knowledge we took from HYA.

A big shout out to Saul my Roomie- for putting up with my idiosyncrasies, for sharing the struggles and stresses of YogaTeacherTraining, for being a brother from another mother It would not have been the same without you brother!

Congratulations to all completing the course!!

We can now return to the lives we left and bring new joy to the people who we share this time with.
