Emily Carpenter has been practicing insight meditation and Hatha yoga since 1998, and both practices have been an integral part of her spiritual practice over the years. She has studied several different styles of yoga, including Anusara, Viniyoga, Kundalini and others, and has completed two yoga teacher training programs, the latest at Yoga Sanctuary in Northampton, Massachusetts. She was on staff at the Insight Meditation Society from 2009-2012 and graduated from Spirit Rock’s Community Dharma Leaders program in 2017. Emily calls Portland Oregon home and enjoys the challenge of applying the dharma teachings to her role as a business owner in tech. She also loves spending time exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest outdoors.
