“Emily is one of the most graceful and respectful teachers I have met around the yoga world. I didn’t really know what to expect from the training. I only knew it was the right time for me to do it as I felt a deep curiosity and need to explore more deeply what in the yoga world was there for me as a woman and as a yogini. Emily’s training allowed me to explore what it means nowadays to be a woman for me, how to take care of myself and how to feel more empowered and more in myself. And I really mean it. I had worked with Emily before having done my YTT with her, so I knew that she was going to hold a space where each of us could feel supported and inspired, but this training went even beyond my expectations. It transpired the love Emily puts in what she does, the research and work she has done in the women’s world (never I felt a question went unanswered or left open) and the respect she has for every woman she works for. She helps women to find their magic, it’s just as easy as that! :)” ~Elisa, Italy
“When I decided to take this journey with Emily , I had no idea what to expect. I have no words to describe how truly empowering this process was . I cannot thank Emily enough , for allowing me to reconnect with myself as a strong powerful woman . I am Beyond excited to share what she has taught me with other women in my life and community . A truly special program , which I cannot recommend highly enough .” ~Janie, New Zealand
“I took part of Emily’s Women’s Self Care training in 2017 in India. At first when looking into it I had unsure feelings, whether it is for me and if this is what I am actually looking for. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for but I felt that I needed something to nurture me on a very deep level. I felt a craving to boost myself; and not only by doing yoga daily and eating healthy food but I wanted some more insight into myself and come out of the training with a new perspective. The training truly did exceed my expectations: partly because I didn’t know what to expect and I went into it like a blank sheet of paper, but also because Emily and other mentors knowledge goes beyond what is taught to us. They gather their knowledge from various different sources combining it to a very rich curriculum. In my honest opinion every woman should experience it. It is a vital training for any woman. We laughed, we cried, we danced, we did yoga, we shared our vulnerable sides and also strengths, we all supported each-other and everything was welcomed. Unexpected things get opened up in this training: and everything happens in a most warm, friendly and healthy environment. The expression “emotional safety” reached a whole new level for me. This training shifted my perspective on myself as a woman and changed my life.” -Anna-Maria
“I had never been to a retreat before and the information about Emily’s course came unexpected, but somehow resonated and touched my heart. It was one of the bests things that ever happened to me! In the beautiful Goa, surrounded by colors and sounds, I learned to see more, feel more and understand more. The course opened places in my mind and heart and made me face my fears and understand my beauty. Day after day, in an atmosphere of safety and trust, we shared experiences and feelings and talked about what women seem to be about. I connected with the Universe, nature, with others, but most importantly with myself. Samata retreat itself was amazing – cheerful, happy and standard is great. I am definitely coming back to continue the journey.” -Magda
“Emily’s Self Care for Women course has been utterly transformational for me. I’m still discovering the full impact of what I learned nine months after the experience. When I first heard about the course, I was at Emily’s women’s circle in Ubud. Something in me leapt, and I knew I had to be there. As the time for the course approached, I started to question that decision. Didn’t I already have a great self-care practice? Did I really need this? Something in me said yes, and I’m glad I listened! The entire time I was there, I felt lovingly enveloped in a community of incredible women. One of the most important things I learned was that entering spaces of pleasurable safety can be a catalyst for immense growth. It was a huge shift for me to see that I could stretch my comfort zone far more easily and joyfully than I thought possible when I felt safe, held, and loved. Most importantly, I learned to listen to myself, trust myself, and feel gratitude for the phenomenal gift it is to be a woman and to be a part of a community of women. Emily has created an incredible offering in this course, and I want every woman I know to experience it!” Cait, USA
