Emilie received her 200 Hour Yoga Vinyasa Certification through The Bhakti Center. Her interest in yoga sparked while attending Virginia Commonwealth University where she studied Anthropology and Religion. That interest blossomed into a deep passion and dedication. Her practice goes beyond just the physical aspects of yoga and continues to go deeper in the teachings of yoga. Emilie’s teaching style has been described as “warm and nurturing”. She gains perspective through her personal practice and by taking a variety of classes at home, and while traveling. Her classes weave the integration of breath and mindful movement, focus on grounding, balance and alignment and the mind-body- soul connection. She enjoys biking around the city and playing ping pong with her husband.
Andy’s interest in music originated in his early teens when he played drums for various garage bands and also excelled in school bands at the district and state level. Mostly self-taught, Andy was very active in orchestral, jazz, symphonic and percussion ensembles while studying at The College of William and Mary in his hometown of Williamsburg, VA. After college, he played drums for Disney World, Orlando and Royal Caribbean Cruises until he landed in Richmond, VA. Andy spent the next ten years playing in numerous jazz, flamenco, and brazilian groups earning his status as a top-call freelance drummer in Richmond. His work in flamenco and brazilian groups naturally led him to incorporate hand drums such as cajon and pandeiro. Since moving to NYC, Andy has played drums for an original Off Broadway musical for which he wrote the drum book. He has taken advantage of the city’s culturally diverse music scene by furthering his hand drum studies to include West African djembe, Middle Eastern frame drum and Indian tabla drums. He often combines hand drums and drum set pieces for various singer songwriters who he performs with. Thanks to Andy’s yogi wife Emilie, he regularly practices yoga and meditation. This naturally led to the intersection of their crafts, where Andy provides a live soundtrack of percussion, singing bowls and other ethereal sound makers for her yoga class. With decades of experience as a performing percussionist, Andy offers a unique sensitivity in the playing of his instruments which facilitates deep states of relaxation. Andy enjoys working with his wife and looks forward to the evolution of their collaboration
