Dr Emilia Dauway

Throughout the years, Emilia has practiced many forms of physical movement including classical dance, Pilates and competing in triathlons. She has practiced yoga at various times in the US, Bali and India, but it was when she was introduced to the philosophy of yoga and the mindfulness aspects that she developed her own practice. For her, the benefits of yoga are beyond the physical and include an awareness that can be applied in daily life.

In 2016, she completed her level 1 teachers training with Tammy Williams of Yoga NRG and today shares this knowledge with others. Emilia has been a surgeon for 20 years, and now incorporates mindfulness and yoga practices to facilitate patient recovery from treatments. . She believes that “surgery is part of the work, but empowering patients through mindfulness helps them to live a quality life through mindful living”.

As a practitioner of Vipassana meditation, she helps others realize that “ cultivating a mindset where caring for our bodies and our health is our personal responsibility and a lifestyle”. Her classes focus on yoga philosophy and are designed around the pillars of mindfulness; while attaining physical benefits through the asanas (postures). Emilia states, “the goal of my class is for us to reconnect to the essence of human nature, as well as, our best higher selves.”
