Emilia Pawlowski – Instructor
Emilia received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2009. After briefly feeling stifled by an office job at an art agency in NYC, Emilia moved to Alaska to work aboard a commercial fishing vessel. Once the season ended she decided to travel and spent a couple of years abroad exploring and working in Asia, Europe, Africa, and South America. A friend recommended that she try yoga after sustaining a back injury from snowboarding and the healing aspects were undeniable. Emilia received her 200 hour certification under Nancy Candea at Purple Om Yoga in New Jersey. Yoga has become a playful escape from the rigidity of her graduate school work and she loves guiding students through a lighthearted practice that builds strength, flexibility, and focus.
