Emily was first introduced to pilates in 2005 at Appalachian State University while she was completing her undergraduate studies in Music Therapy.  The studio quickly became an oasis from a demanding course load and the fast pace of college life. Emily found the classical system to be challenging yet graceful, and a passion for movement began to take root.  Emily completed ASU’s Classical Pilates Teacher Training program in 2007 under 2nd Generation Classical Pilates Instructors Mariann Adams and Rebecca Quinn.  This program included 600+ hours of study in all aspects of the system and apparatus, supervised apprentice teaching hours, and additional courses in somatics and human anatomy.  Since completing her training, Emily has participated in continuing education courses at her alma-mater ASU and Pure Pilates in Asheville, NC with world renowned classical teachers Brooke Siler and Kathi Ross-Nash.

After graduating from ASU Emily then moved to Cleveland, OH and began teaching pilates at Inspiral Motion.  It was here she was fully introduced to THE GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®. The 3-dimensional movements took Emily’s already strong mind-body connection to a much deeper level and she was immediately hooked! After moving back to her hometown of Wilmington, NC in 2011 Emily was thrilled to really solidify her practice with trainer Susan Maravetz!  Because Emily had such a deep connection to the work she knew she had to become a teacher so she could share this movement system with her clients.  Emily completed the GYROTONIC® Level 1 teacher training course work in 2013.  Emily completed the GYROKINESIS® course work in 2014.   She also is trained on the specialized equipment the Jumping-Stretching Board and is on track to finish all the GYROTONIC® Level 2 work in September.

Emily is a firm believer that movement heals.  Your workout should leave you feeling better than when you walked in the door and with a sense of being more whole, more connected, more energetic and joyful! She believes her path has lead her back to her hometown because the people of Wilmington, NC need these movement systems and her unique background and training can provide this.  Hence, that is why InJoy is now open!

When Emily isn’t sharing movement with her clients she is busy teaching her 2 young boys how to be good men, cooking vegetarian dishes, finishing up her latest knitting project, and encouraging her husband to hang things on the walls. Ha!
