Yoga

Emily Hite, RYT-500 and a certified SmartFLOW® yoga instructor, loves teaching yogis of all backgrounds and levels of experience. Through alignment-based flow and restorative classes she encourages students to build awareness of posture, create space to breathe, and simply enjoy living in their bodies. Practice with her at YogaWorks Palo Alto or contact her for individual or group private instruction or yoga in the workplace.

Emily began practicing yoga while she was a professional ballet and modern dancer. She became a dedicated practitioner after meeting her teacher, Annie Carpenter, whose SmartFLOW method provides clear structure and fluid sequencing that supports students through a rigorous physical practice in a playful, compassionate environment. Emily has completed her 200 and 500-hour teacher trainings with Carpenter and assisted her classes in Oakland and Venice, California.
