Emilie Perz is an international yoga educator and movement therapist based in Los Angeles. Her vast knowledge of yoga and anatomy, infectious positivity and her creative and fun sequences have gained her a dedicated following making her classes highly sought-after and earning her a nod as one of LA’s Top Yoga Instructors.

An advanced practitioner herself,  Emilie was initially introduced to yoga a way to ease the anxiety and depression she suffered following her father’s death when she was 17. What began as a gentle Hatha practice turned into a deep love for Iyengar, Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow that she continues to practice and study today.

This passion for yoga has led Emilie to countless yogic teaching and learning experiences on many continents. She has over 1000 hours of yoga education, has taught more than 20 workshops globally and has served as teacher trainer for several yoga institutions including YogaWorks, Yoga Medicine and Light on Lotus. In 2018, Emilie was hired to create the anatomy curriculum for Equinox 200hr teacher trainings worldwide. She has also served as a Lululemon and Free People brand ambassador, worked as an Adidas consultant for photoshoots and branding campaigns, and has continued her anatomy education by participating in cadaver work at The Laboratory of Anatomical Intelligence in Phoenix.

Emilie also spent three years as Community Director launching YogaMedicine®, a yoga teacher training program based on anatomy, biomechanics and physiology, with founder Tiffany Cruikshank. This experience cemented Emilie’s knowledge on these topics, which she now brings to her current career in yoga movement therapy at   LA-based medical rehabilitation center, Urban Med. At Urban Med, Emilie meets one-on-one with patients to create individual pre/post rehabilitation treatment plans consisting of yoga movement, pranayama, meditation and myofascial release.

New Daily Online Classes

During this unprecedented time with COVID-19, I have temporarily transitioned to offering online classes Mon-Sat 10-11:30am. I have 2 types of online classes to choose from:

  1. Zoom live streaming classes: Monday-Saturday 10-11:30 am PST  These classes are great for staying connected to our community and staying motivated by having to “show up” and take accountability for your practice. These classes are offered at a bundle price point of $15 for four classes. Once you register you will receive a Zoom link to follow. You must download Zoom to use. Do not panic if you cannot attend the live-stream class. These classes are pre-recorded and I am happy to send you the links accordingly. Simply email me for the them. Keep them, share them, keep inspiring through community!
  2. Pre-recorderd Video classes
    Pre-recorded classes are good when you want to practice on your own at your convenience. These classes are available via my website by registering at the top where it says Login. Once you register, you will be taken to a page to individually purchase videos. These videos are shorter in time and cheaper in price at $3.99 each for one time viewing. These videos don’t expire, so use it anytime.Both types of classes are taught by Emilie Perz. Please email emilie@emilieperzyoga.com or visit IG: Emilieperzyoga
