Emily owns and manages Dillsburg Yoga. After practicing and studying yoga for many years, she traveled to Vancouver Island, British Columbia to complete her yoga teacher training. She lived and camped on a small herb and vegetable farm, while immersing herself in the study of yoga and natural living. She honors the practice of yoga and its ability to change lives for the better. With true intention, positive change is possible. Emily sees yoga as a means to nourish body, mind and spirit.
Emily also has an academic background in science and philosophy; in particular with human physiology and integrative approaches to health. She is a certified biology & environmental educator with teaching experience in local public schools and at a Montessori school. Emily has had a variety of experiences in her life, from living & exploring the magic of the island of Oahu, Hawai'i, working at the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History botany department, supporting and experiencing work on a small, sustainable vegetable farm and more, but she feels most at home studying, practicing and sharing yoga & herbalism!
She is currently studying vitalist herbalism through the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism. Emily's intentions are to integrate both the philosophies of yoga & herbalism in her teaching and to work toward fostering an environment where people can make connections and develop stronger relationships with themselves, with others and with the Earth, our home.
Emily is a yoga teacher, herbalist and earth community activist. She looks forward to working with you- in hopes of sharing the wisdom of yoga and growing through slowing down, gaining presence and learning yoga in a fundamentally holistic way.

Adrianne came to the mat early in high school, gravitating towards a very active practice of arm balances and inversions. At the start of 2019, she started a practice of Acro-yoga. After diving deeper into the practice of yoga, she quickly learned that it is about much more than a physical practice and is to be practiced off the mat. Adrianne completed Om My Yoga's 200 hour teacher training during the spring of 2019. She has experience teaching both in and out of a studio setting. Adrianne is constantly growing and evolving as a teacher, but the heart of her teaching has always been about serving others. She strives to teach yoga in a way that includes everyone, seeing as though everyone’s practice is unique to them. By offering a balance of breath work and mindful movements, her classes offer an opportunity to connect with the physical and energetic body.
