the team

Working in the belief that three heads are better than one, Emma, Leah, and Erin will curate a weekend full of yoga, breathwork, and meditation practices intended to empower and restore. 


Emma Goldman, Teacher

Emma first discovered yoga 10 years ago and life has never been the same. Her classes combine vinyasa flow with elements of Katonah yoga, whose brilliant insights and metaphors have taught her time and time again to get out of her own way, see the whole picture, and ultimately... get over herself! Expect lots of props, adjustments, breathwork and dad jokes!

Leah schlackman, Teacher

For Leah, yoga is a practice of gathering information for the purpose of self-exploration and empowerment. It is a way to practice standing one's ground, igniting the imagination, breaking old habits, and experiencing a revelation. Her classes are rooted in Katonah Yoga which combine elements of Taoism, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and breathwork practices.
