Wellness Program - Instructor:
Emily Stone

Born in New Orleans and raised in Brooklyn, Emily has been teaching yoga since 2006. A former marathon runner, she traded in her Nikes for a yoga mat mere seconds after she randomly took her first class in 2002. Currently, she is a senior teacher at Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in New York and San Francisco (where she also teaches teacher training) and Prema Yoga Brooklyn.

Emily's wild and wooly career has also included a fourteen-year stint teaching Latin at Saint Ann’s School in Brooklyn, a two-year turn as an on-camera gossip reporter, and great gobs of mystical and inspiring foreign travel.

Emily holds her BA from Oberlin College and an MFA in creative writing from Hunter College. Vigorous, exuberant, meditative and spiritual (not to mention fun), her classes are a roadmap straight to that better brain that beats behind our lungs. She is deeply and eternally grateful to her shri teachers Jasmine Tarkeshi, Dana Flynn, Sharon Rudy and Lesley Desaulniers.
