I won’t let go of: curiosity
I get inspired by: conversations and altruism
teaching style: understanding, foundational, intuitive
first touch with yoga: 15 years ago in Guatemala. A bit weird class full of sweat, wonder and discipline
a book that changed my life: When breath becomes air
Emilia has moved herself all her life and moved others for over 15 years. Yoga came into Emilia’s life as she sought a place to slow down, calm down and find a counterbalance to a life full of over-achieving. For her yoga represents mercy, exploring boundaries and challenging yourself outside your comfort zone. A long-term illness has proved her life’s fragility and continues to remind every day of the uniqueness of life.
Emilia is the founder of Roots Helsinki and full-time entrepreneur. Emilia gets excited about challenges and is not afraid to live in the moment. Sometimes she struggles in front of decisions and eventually does things intuitively. Continuously studying and learning. She is interested in everything and sometimes going into many directions at the same time. Emilia loves people, life and rarely plans beyond the next few weeks. Very early mornings combined with a cup of coffee are her favourite moments of the day. Emilia is doing her best to make Roots a place where everyone feels welcome. In her teaching, Emilia is both pedantic and at times a laid back. Life is a moving between the extremes.
Emilia teaches classes in Finnish.
