Emily Kuser – E-RYT & Anusara® Yoga Instructor at The Yoga Barn, Ubud – has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and teaching yoga for 8. She has studied thousands of hours with incredibly respected Anusara, Shadow, Ashtanga and Jivamukti facilitators worldwide. Emily most frequently studies with Tara Judelle—a greatly influential force and mentor in her life over the past years. More recently she has been diving deep into tantric studies with spiritual teacher Sally Kempton. In addition to a life of yoga, Emily travels frequently to Nepal to deepen her understanding and studies of Tibetan Buddhism— a tradition and practice that is becoming more and more a part of her daily life. Emily has lived in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia for over 6 years and currently teaches Anusara Yoga at The Yoga Barn. She regularly leads her highly respected and sought out Teacher Trainings at the Yoga Barn and is a key organizer in the the annual Bali Spirit Festival. Prior to living in Indonesia, she was a writer for LA Yoga magazine in Los Angeles, studied in Santa Barbara, CA and grew up in dusty Tucson, AZ. In Tucson Emily had the great fortune of discovering Anusara Yoga as well as teachers such as Darren Rhodes and Bruce Bowditch at Tucson’s local studio Yoga Oasis —this discovery totally altered the course of her life. Emily loves to weave storytelling, proper alignment and high vibes into her yoga teachings.
