"May the gratitude in my heart kiss all the universe." -Hafiz
Emilie Pomerleau Marcee Gutman-Ballantyne invited me to my first yoga class at Fountain of Health Yoga Studio in Pueblo, CO in 2006. The practice of yoga opened up a whole new world to me. At the time I was running a lot and I found that my body recovered so much faster when I had a steady yoga practice. In 2017 I was thrilled when Marcee decided to teach a yoga teacher training. I signed up immediately!
Yoga has helped me to be a stronger athlete and a more balanced person in all ways. In June of 2017, I received my 100-Hour Ayurveda Lifestyle Counselor Training Certificate with Arpita Shah. I love helping students have fun while gaining greater confidence, body awareness and motivation to challenge perceived limitations. I earned my 200-hour yoga teacher training certificate in October of 2017 and am completely in love with teaching yoga. I currently teach at Fountain of Health Yoga Studio and Nova Stella in Pueblo. I host private and small group yoga classes at Open Studio Yoga in Pueblo. I am moved by the cohesiveness of Pueblo's yoga community and feel grateful to be a part of Pueblo's growing yoga scene. In my experience, the greatest growth comes from towing the line of what is predictable and common and surrendering to the present moment (stepping outside of my comfort zone). You may find me galavanting in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, riding my mountain bike at Lake Pueblo Trails or leading one of my yoga classes. Stop on by and let’s tow that line!! - Emilie Pomerleau www.everydayadventuresllc.com 719-660-0433
Julie Emmons Julie was drawn to yoga for its quality as a moving meditation. She has been practicing since 1998 and began formal studies in 2000. Primarily trained in Ashtanga, Julie's focus grew when she began practicing at The Samarya Center in Seattle, Washington, a non-profit center for Ashtanga yoga and Integrated Movement Therapy. Moved by the understanding of her teachers, Molly Lannon Kenny and Stephanie Sisson, that yoga is available to all individuals "regardless of preconceived barriers," Julie chose to complete her 200-hour teaching certification with them in 2008. Julie teaches according to Krishnamacharya's statement that "if you can breath, you can practice yoga".
