Meet Emily Dixon
We're excited for you to get to know Emily. Emily joined our team last spring as a substitute. She spent 2019 completing her 200 hour teacher training. Emily is a natural when it comes to teaching and we loved watching her weave the wisdom that she was learning into her practices all last year.
Now an RYT grad and a FULL Time Pop Up Yoga teacher. Emily will be continuing to teach our Wednesday evening 6pm All Levels Flow class at Marina Park when we relaunch back to the parks.
In the mean time get to know this hometown gal:
Name: Emily Dixon
Birthday: November 10th
Hometown: Ventura, CA
Tell us about the evolution of your yoga practice:
I dabbled in yoga in high school but I actually began a regular practice with VPUY about four years ago. I’ve enjoyed being a regular fixture in class, first as a student and now as an instructor!
☺ I love walking this path because as my students and I learn and grow, we get to share our knowledge with each other –and have some laughs along the way!
What’s one thing you wish you could tell yourself when you began your yoga practice:
Practice and all is coming! As your practice evolves, you will evolve! Are you telling yourself you “can’t” do that pose? Try it again, and again, and again. You will learn to let go of self-judgment and meet yourself where you are. Maybe one day, as a bonus, the pose will start to become more accessible to you.
Why do you teach yoga:
My yoga practice has transformed my mind, body, and soul. If I’m blessed enough to have this gift, I have to share it with others.
How long have you taught:
I have been teaching since May of 2019!
If you could have lunch with any inspiration individual (dead or alive) who and why:
Frida Kahlo! She marched to the beat of her own drum, overcame so many unfathomable losses, continues to inspire artists decades after her death, and crammed such a full, colorful eccentric LIFE into only 47 years.
Favorite Treat: Cheese popcorn *drool*
Favorite Book: The Fan Man by William Kotzwinkle
How many countries have you been to: Never been abroad—on my list!!
Spirit Animal: Lion or snake
One thing we don’t know about you: I can write with my feet! LOL
(We did NOT know this about Emil but now we think we need proof)
