About Emily Perry

emily perry ardha matsyMy name is Emily Perry, MTOM, L.Ac., E-RYT-500. I am a Yoga Teacher, Acupuncturist, & Herbalist based in Santa Cruz, California. A student of yoga and meditation since 1994, and of Chinese Medicine since 2000, I teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga, mindfulness and Holistic Health. As often as I can, I study with my teachers Janet Stone, Jody Greene, Christopher Wallis, and Christina Sell in the vinyasa flow tradition.

I discovered yoga in college, around the same time I started practicing Zen meditation. I dove into a book called “Light on Yoga,” and I found it to be an amazing manual for living a joyful, healthy, peaceful life. I was hooked. During that same time I began studying herbalism with Native American healers, and soon found a calling to study Chinese Medicine and holistic health. Eventually, when I returned to Los Angeles, I dove into vinyasa flow yoga during its early stages, and it has been my favorite yoga style ever since. Yoga has fueled my passion for living, and over the years, as I started a family and a business, yoga has always been my home base, my refuge. Practice brings me joy, peace and strength, and you can often find me on my mat when I am not out surfing with the kids, hiking in the redwoods with the dog, or at home cooking plant-based meals. I also teach workshops, retreats and trainings around the world.

How I Teach? Weaving together five element theory, energetic alignment, non-dual philosophy and Classical Chinese Medicine, my vinyasa flow classes explore energetics, mudra, chanting, and pranayama.

Favorite pose? Right now, I would have to say Warrior I: I love the way I can root down to rise up energetically into the heart when I find myself here. It is so powerful and sweet.

Favorite food? That’s easy: the avocado!

What is Bhakti Yoga? It is the path of devotion; in Bhakti Yoga we align with our hearts, with our truest intentions: we align ourselves with what we are called to create and bring forth in the world. Yoga by nature is a practice of devotion- devotion to our breath, and to what is meaningful to us. I can’t wait to share my love of Bhakti yoga with you!
