Ashtanga returns with Emery Bryant at Essential Yoga!

Emery became certified in Ashtanga in 2009 and then started teaching it at Essential immediately afterwards in fall of 2009, making Essential Yoga one of the first places to take Ashtanga in Springfield. She then took a little break from training classes as she focused on building her RYS (registered yoga school) through which she has trained over 50 yoga teachers since 2014. 

Ashtanga yoga is quickly gaining popularity and we are excited to announce the return of one of Springfield's original Ashtanga teachers, Emery Bryant. Starting August 26th Emery will be leading the Ashtanga Primary Series at Essential Yoga on Fridays 9am-10:15am. 

Ashtanga is a dynamic flowing style of yoga that is a set sequence. Expect continuity in each session, allowing you to systematically gain strength, balance and flexibility. The primary goal in this class is to maintain a deep connection of breath and movement and attain a calm focused mind while moving through the physically challenging sequence of poses. This class is open to all levels. 


Essential Yoga of Springfield, MO offers a variety of yoga disciplines including Vinyasa Power Yoga, Gentle Flow Yoga, Basic Iyengar Yoga and Restorative Yoga.   Our classes heal, detoxify and exhilarate the body and mind with emphasis on movement, balance and intention.  We focus on core strength, balance and flow to build a solid practice based on strengthening the Body, Mind and Spirit.
