Emily earned her 200 at Intentional Yoga in Kalamazoo, MI. She then attained her CPR/First Aid/AED certification through The American Red Cross and gained her SUP Yoga certification through Yen Yoga and Fitness in beautiful Traverse City, MI. Shortly afterward, Emily started her own SUP and beach yoga company on the Great Lakes. For Emily, the calling of more yogic knowledge was so great that she ultimately decided to travel to India to study under the masters. Emily earned her 500 with a specialization in Ayurveda at Ayuryoga Eco Ashram in Mysore, India. Then followed the sun to the fabulous Florida Keys, where she founded a non-profit organization thru the practice of seva. Always a student, Emily spent 5 weeks giving and studying Karma Yoga at The Sivananda Ashram in The Bahamas. Since, Emily has facilitated many workshops on Anatomy, Pranayama, Safety in Asana, Sanskrit, and more. In constant Svadhyaya, Emily has now facilitated and co-facilitated more than a dozen 200 and 500 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings nationally and internationally; living with commitment and discipline to the teachings and yogic texts while guiding powerful classes with a pure and kind heart.

Emily, you changed my life

When I met Emily, it was 2017 and I had recently begun my yoga journey. I wasn’t very confident in my abilities and had no idea how I could grow. After spending 3 weeks with Emily, I learned more than I could have ever imagined! From her extensive knowledge of human anatomy to her dedication to teaching the yogic practice, my life was transformed from just those few weeks. Thank you for everything Emily, you have left a life long impression on me. Keep shining your light and helping humans be happy & healthy one breath at a time.

Emily Hughes -- a Generous and Empowering Teacher

I have practiced with Emily off-and-on for 18 months or so (I split my time between Virginia and Key West). She is incredible. Her passion for yoga, her commitment to teaching, her preparation for class, and the modifications she always has available make her classes both challenging and endlessly illuminating. Emily has a beautiful voice and way with words. She is a joyful soul and that joy shines through in the positive and encouraging environment she creates in her classes.


She checks in with her students and sets themes for each class that relate directly to her students' lives and to the spiritual practice of yoga. She inspires us to use breath and movement to connect to ourselves and the universe in a deeper way. Emily is compassionate and urges compassion in all who take her classes. She generously shares her knowledge and light with us in the Key West community.

Things were going pretty badly in my life when I began yoga. And it just happened that it was with Emily. Absolutely amazing. She did so much for me, not just physically but mentally. I've had classes with a number of other instructors since then, and none come close to Emily's skill. She's a rare gem and you'll treasure any class with her.

Emily is awesome

Do you know when you meet someone who has a great spirit. From the moment I met Emily I loved her. She is very spiritual and has great energy. She also takes the time to explain and make sure you are safe. Can’t say enough good things. I miss yoga with Emily.

Wish I had an EMILY classpass!

Her teaching is rich with clear instruction! She is experienced and not afraid to share it. She has a depth in her teaching that makes you feel attended to while pulling the whole class together and leave you feeling clear headed, strong and ready for the world. She has the power to teach such a great yoga class that at the end you might release emotion in the form of tears! That’s when you know it’s a good class. :) She really cares and is professional.

Always an amazing experience

Emily teaches not only the asanas of yoga but you learn so much about the science and mystery behind this beautiful practice in her classes. I’ve been to many different types of studios and have had many different teachers. Until I met Emily I never really felt like I was being “taught” or learning much about why I strived to make these strange shapes with my body. You will leave her classes feeling like you’re ready to conquer the world!

Lovely in all ways

Emily is one of a kind! I've lived in other places and looked for an instructor close to the caliber of Emily with no luck at all! She's the real deal! My favorite yogi and person! ❤❤❤

Individual Attention

Emily can make you feel like the only person in a room full of people. Her ability to really care about her students and teach to suggestions/needs is incredible. Emily brings wisdom /readings to class and almost always suggests a theme that is super grounding. I've been practicing yoga for about 10-years and I'm impressed with Emily, look forward to her classes and will go to different locations just to takes classes from her. I highly recommend her for anybody practicing (all levels).

Emily ❤️

Emily is the most warm, inviting instructor I have ever practiced with. She has a presence that is so sincere and genuine. I have never met any other light like hers. She has aquatinted me with a side of spirituality I have been searching for, for along time.


While her classes are powerfully spiritual, she is exceptional with her understanding of anatomy. She can read injureies, weekness, and emotional afflictions that can manifest its self physically by the way your body articulates.

She has an understanding of the Mind, Spirit and Body that truly refreshing and she offers her love and knowledge at every opportunity. I personally have been touched by her light, and have seen her generous heart though and though.

She also hosts Yoga at the Park where she gives of her practice freely and donates any funds that have been offered to a local charity.

I HIGHLY recommend practicing with Emily, and even urge people to seek her out for her teacher trainings. She has touched my life and enrichened me. I am quite certain she can touch you as well.
