Owner, Real Wellness Co.
As a former educator, Emily learned how to work closely with families and communities early on in her career. Realizing that her passion had always been about health and wellness, she naturally wove together education with the fitness industry. Emily founded Boot Camp Hawaii in 2009, operating multiple fitness boot camps across the Hawaiian islands.
She completed the Kona Ironman World Championships in 2011—a physical achievement that became a pivotal moment in her approach to health and wellness. After taking the time to heal and recover from an extensive autoimmune disorder, she realized that there is more to well-being than physical fitness alone. She brought her new philosophy of Real Wellness to her work and to include the whole person.
Real Wellness Company is Hawaii’s premier wellness brand, helping clients, families, and organizations create sustainable wellness transformations, while helping to build a culture of wellness in today’s modern world. Emily is currently working on designing and developing a wellness curriculum that will be implemented in Hawaii’s public school system for parents and teachers.
A sought after public speaker, Emily specializes in motivating diverse groups to achieve their health and wellness goals. Her keynotes have addressed the specific needs of retired military veterans, breast cancer survivors, first-generation college students, business professionals, and community leaders.
Emily and her husband raise their two children in Honolulu, where they enjoy being outdoors as a family.
Yoga Instructor, RYT 200
My yoga practice began in 2005 in a Bikram studio in Tempe, AZ. Like many, I was drawn to the physical benefits but quickly realized that the the practice was having a deep impact on my mental and emotional health. I became certified to teach in 2013 and have been teaching since. I am always expanding on my RYT-200 training with workshops, self-study, consistent practice, and self reflection and inquisition. The most important part of being a teacher is remembering that you are still a student!
To me, yoga is all about learning the language of your body so that you can know your true self, both on and off the mat, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I believe that knowing and staying true to oneself is essential to successfully navigating the ups and downs of life. The yoga will meet you where you are on any given day. It can heal, uplift, soothe, or relax. It can be strong and sweaty, or soft and gentle. It can be empowering one day and humbling the next. The practice mirrors the path of life and also guides it forward. I aim to bring these elements to my students in each class, allowing them to connect with the deeper intuition of the self.
When I'm not on the mat, I can be found hiking the ridge trails with my husband and dog, swimming in the ocean, or connecting with friends over coffee. I love cats, sunsets, funny movies, and chocolate. I look forward to seeing you on the mat!
