Emily graduated from the University of Alberta in 2002 with a degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies with a specialization in Special Populations. In 2004 she began working with Island Health as a Recreation Therapist in both adult neurology and adult mental health. Emily continues to work part-time within the Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation Program where she coaches patients in stress management and wellness through Mindfulness and Self-Compassion. Although her interest in Mindfulness was sparked in 2004, it was a 2007 retreat in Nepal which solidified her personal practice to this day. In her other work within a private clinic, she draws on this experience while teaching Mindfulness and Self-Compassion to those recovering from Post-Concussion Syndrome and Functional Neurological Disorder. As a natural extension of her interests, Emily completed a 250 hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2009 and continues to teach several classes each week. To complement these credentials and experience, she completed the Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher Training program in 2019. She began offering this evidence-based program in 2020 both in person and online. Emily’s teaching style offers a combination of compassion, presence and humour. She cultivates the space for her participants to trust themselves, embrace imperfection and nurture growth. To learn more about Emily and her offerings, please visit www.studiobe.ca
