Emily Olsen is a student and teacher of yoga living in Chicago, IL. She completed her Yoga Alliance certified 200-hr teacher training at Moksha Yoga in March of 2017 under the guidance of Daren Friesen. She has also been deeply influenced by shamanic ritual traditions of the Andean lineage, and incorporates the reverence for nature and the healing potential of ritual practice from these teachings into her yoga practice. Emily’s group classes and private instruction aim to provide safe, informed, and joyful spaces for anyone interested in exploring their own yoga asana practice. As a graduate student pursuing her MA in counseling psychology, Emily’s instruction draws from both yogic teachings and knowledge of evidence-based psychology to create spaces for students to deepen their relationship with the self and inspire continual personal growth.
