“I created High Vibe Yoga in 2010 because I couldn’t not create it. More than anything, I wanted a safe space where I could explore spirituality and question what I was learning without feeling stupid or judged. I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, so I had to create it.
High Vibe Yoga is a tantric school of Hatha Yoga and Meditation. When I say it’s a tantric school, I mean that this yoga is a way of life. The style of yoga we teach gives a sense of opening to grace, connecting to oneself, and connecting to a community. A High Vibe Yoga class is one with a theme or a message running through the class as a thread to uplift, inspire, and create a sense of community among the folks who have shown up in the room to practice. The sequencing is intended for every BODY. If someone feels like there’s a moment where the sequence isn’t for their body, the class is so welcoming that she trusts she’ll be loved and supported in taking a rest, finding another position, or asking for help. This is yoga for health, not obsession.
High Vibe Yoga trainings are experiential. A quote I love to use is, “if you give a man a fish he eats for a day, if you teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime.” That’s the way I aspire to teach the trainings. Rather than offloading a bunch of information, it’s about getting you out of your comfort zone enough that you have to learn how to do it yourself. When you learn to do it yourself, you can do it for a lifetime.” Emily Kuser
