Opening our hearts through an asana creates an energy of gratitude.

Shaun Emerson

With the encouragement of his wife, Shaun began his yoga journey six years ago in the heat of a Birkram yoga studio. After an eight-month love affair, and four-month long breakup with the traditional Bikram practice, Shaun transitioned his focus to Yoga Sculpt. Prompted by his daughters and curious to learn more, Shaun entered and completed his 200-hour teacher certification in the fall of 2014. It was during this training that he shifted his focus from Yoga Sculpt to Vinyasa Yoga. In this practice, he found his passion for the power of breath, and grew a love for the practice’s quiet, yet vigorous, elegance.
