Emma began practicing yoga as a means to cope with the stress of graduate school. She found the physical challenge of yoga to be a welcome distraction from long hours of studying and collecting data in the chemistry lab.
Having been a dancer all her life, she discovered that this "distraction" was, in fact, a passion for movement that she had held her entire life. This discovery led her to quit school and chemistry altogether to begin performing and teaching dance again, as well as becoming a certified Pilates and Yoga instructor. She now has a new career teaching dance, Pilates, and Yoga and loves to find creative ways to blend these methods. She has not set foot in a laboratory since and has never been happier. She completed her full certification at Lotus Pilates in Bloomington, Indiana in 2008.
What Our Clients Are Saying
“You have a beautiful studio–gorgeous–with more Pilates equipment than I even knew existed. Everyone I met there was warm, friendly, helpful, and encouraging.”
“The comparison between my experience at Aldrich Pilates and what was called Pilates at my health club and at physical therapy is rather like the comparison between an Italian dinner at a wonderful restaurant in Florence versus pizza from a pizza delivery chain. Both are Italian but they are very different.”
