Emily believes that yoga is a path toward mental, emotional, and physical resilience. She loves weaving together philosophy, anatomy, breath, and movement in her flows. Her own yoga journey from youth has led her to empathize and encourage yogic growth through whatever life is throwing at you. 

In her own journey, Emily has seen her yoga journey evolve with her lived experience: from creating more strength; to supporting injuries as they heal (most recently a broken vertebra from a hammock spill); to sustaining the body through the challenging transitions of life. In her classes, she invites you to listen to what your body needs, and to answer those needs through rigor, ease, and expansion.

Emily holds an MA and BA in Folklore, and has studied yoga and yoga philosophy over the past decade. She holds two teacher certificates: one from the University of Hyderabad Yoga Centre, 2009; and the other from Freedom Yoga here in Eugene, 2015. She is a professional astrologer who frames her classes around the timing of the stars, traditional sequencing, and safe principles of alignment. Her gratitude goes out to her teachers as a constant source of inspiration and support. You can find her online at emilyridout.com, on Instagram, or through her Weekly AstroYoga Forecast.
