Emily Katz

Emily Katz is dedicated to helping her clients students find balance in all aspects of their lives- emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical.
Living a fast-paced life moving from one activity to another can leave a person stressed and out of balance. Emily’s goal is to learn (and teach) simple tools which help find balance and develop healthy habits. Activities that will help students of all ages find true harmony in all aspects of their lives.

In 2012, while in her senior year at Miami University a life changing event occurred when Emily contracted chronic Lyme disease. The disease not only caused physical and mental discomfort and pain, it also resulted in Emily falling behind in her schoolwork and losing connection with close friends. During this time her father observed that traditional western medicine was not entirely working for Emily and thought that yoga may help alleviate some of the symptoms. Through her teachers teaching’s Emily developed a holistic approach to treating her sickness by incorporating modern medicine, traditional yoga therapeutic remedies and plant-based alternative medicines. Because of this approach to health and wellness Emily no longer has the symptomatic suffering of Lyme disease.

Emily is now vinyasa and yin yoga teacher, kid’s yoga teacher, and journeying towards her Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Emily’s goal is to incorporate all aspects of holistic living and encouraging students to become steadfast in their own practices while integrating them into their day-to-day lives.



Emily Katz instructs the following:
  • Vinyasa Flow (Mixed Level)
  • Connect movement with breath "vinyasa" as the teacher guides you through traditional yoga asana postures sequenced into a "flow". Against a backdrop of great music, move through physical postures, usually starting with a sun salution series. Often included is chanting, pranayama (breathing exercises), yoga philosophy and meditation. All levels of practitioner are welcome at Mixed Level classes, although some knowledge of basic postures is recommended and those new to yoga should bring an open mind and an understanding that class will likely move at a rigorous pace.

  • Yin Yoga
  • Yin Yoga is a simple, quiet, in-drawn practice that uses steady, long-held postures that benefit your “yin,” connective tissues, such as the fascia, ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones. Poses are held 3 to 5 minutes each with all muscles relaxed and released.
     
    Yin Yoga is a more meditative approach to yoga, that aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence. It can be practiced by everybody and will complement an already active life or help those who feel distracted by “mind chatter”.

    This practice calms the mind and nervous system, reduces stress and anxiety, increases circulation, improves flexibility and joint mobility, balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi or prana through meridian stimulation.
