Emma Grant has been practicing Yoga for over 20 years and during this time has explored various Yoga traditions and styles of Yoga, including: Integral Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yoga Therapy, I-Rest as well as feminine and tantric forms of Yoga.

Emma discovered E-motion Yoga in 2015 when the founder Johnathon Dao, began teaching weekly classes at her Byron Bay studio, Red Tent Yoga. In the first E-motion Yoga class she attended it was 'Love at first Shake,' and she immediately took to the practice and included it in her daily routine. Emma appreciates the liberating nature of E-motion Yoga that allows us to release trapped emotions and stress from our bodies through the organic tremouring and shaking.

In 2017, Emma completed her teacher training with Johnathon Dao and now teaches E-motion Yoga privately, at festivals and on occasion regular classes. Emma specialises in Yoga for women and so adapts E-motion Yoga as a yin style feminine class.
