• Functional Movement for Life

    FML yoga for people with tired bodies and busy minds.

  • Functional Movement for Life


    Playful, soulful biomechanics-informed classes suitable for every body.

    FML - yoga?!

    Do you have an achy back or shoulders? Perhaps things aren't quite as they should be with your pelvis, you've got achy knees or generally feel a bit graony when you move. I mean, you're not *that* ancient yet.


    This class is perfect for you if you'd like to feel more comfort, ease and connection in life. Unwind your body and mind and move after a day at your desk or undo the movements and stresses of the day.


    Themed classes that work on bringing awareness and movement to specific areas. More soulful than a fitness class but not a chakra in sight.


  • Led by Emilie, Embodied Yoga Principles teacher, 200 hour hatha and vinyasa yoga TT. Emilie's a Franklin Method Pelvic Fascia Trainer and has trained with Katy Bowman.

    She's quite geeky about feet and is a committed course junkie, most recently she completed a certificate in Embodied Coaching, with Embodied Meditation next on the list...

    Emilie has over 16 years of experience practicing movement and meditation; she likes baking buns and making puns.

  • "Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my first class yesterday evening - it was just what I needed, so I'm glad I saw your post on Facebook!
    When I got home I felt really uplifted but calm. I slept really well and this morning felt more 'positive' in general.
    Looking forward to next week already."

    "I just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterdays session, it was magical!"

    I recommend these classes as they've really helped me to breathe, stretch and properly listen to my body. "


    - Susie

    I highly recommend Emilie's yoga classes. With a warm and gentle approach, she teaches very intuitively to your needs. I liked the way the practice was insightfully linked to everyday experience and how Emilie made suggestions for the continuation and development of the yoga poses at home.

    Lucy, Frome

    “The classes were comprehensive, covering all of the body from head-to-toe.

    I enjoyed the relaxation at the end and almost fell asleep! I felt very nurtured by Emilie and would be happy to recommend her to others.”
