Emma Ropner writes
“I believe there is a connection between how we manage and move our bodies and how this helps manages our ‘minds’. My spiritual number is 5, the number of the teacher, and my life’s mission/purpose is to share the teachings of wellbeing practices like yoga, sound therapy, and the esoteric aspects of human life, with my students. I believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Our life’s work is to know and love ‘the self’ so that we can connect to that divine power residing within all of us. From this space,- we activate through yogas like Kundalini, all that connects us with the universal creative forces. These are the forces power life’s blessings. I work with the subtle layers and powers within our human bodies; energy centers called the chakras. My passion is to help you awaken your personal power centers to stay physically strong, mentally resilient, and to remain, or grow, happy.”
Emma trained with KRI certified yoga schools in London and Portugal (Karam Kriya) and with Julie Montagu’s London-based Whole Self Yoga School for Vinyasa Mandala Flow. She has also trained extensively with Carolyn Cowan (who teaches Kundalini Global) and combines both styles of Kundalini yoga in her classes. Emma is a fan of the therapeutic side of Kundalini yoga as kundalini yoga provides a student with tools to regulate/have agency over their states of anxiety, addictions, and loss of sense of the self, their navigation through the menopause and come to peace with past lives, shadow selves, and ancestral karmic load.
Ema has also trained with James Reeves at Triyoga, who teaches the acclaimed Yoga Nidra IRest method. She has trained with the Yoga for Cancer Specialist, Vicky Fox (Triyoga) to bring this therapeutic form of yoga to YogaSpace Yorkshire to support those in the area. She is a qualified children’s yoga teacher and trained with StarChild Yoga, an Education for Peace, certified by KYTA.
She learned her Gong craft from two gong master Gurus; Mehtab Benton from the USA who has taught all over the world. Emma continues to train with Sheila Whittaker who is the lead trainer at the College of Sound Healing. Emma has two gongs, Mercury and Chiron.
Emma holds residential retreats here at YogaSpace Yorkshire in collaboration with visiting guest teachers.
