small-group Restorative yoga sessions

Sunday afternoon Restorative yoga class begins in October 2019. I'm excited to have studied the art and skill of teaching Restorative yoga in July 2019 in San Francisco with the 'Queen of Restorative Yoga,' Judith Hanson Lasater.

We will spend the first 15 minutes of class in gentle movement to get the energy in our bodies flowing in a positive way. The remainder of class focuses on Restorative poses to achieve deep rest and relaxation; to create a refuge from our busy, distracted world. We finish class with tea and time for community.

Classes are Sundays, 3:00 - 4:30 pm, in 4-week blocks. Investment is $75

I have openings for November and December 4-week sessions; email me at emmylouherrick@gmail.com for details and to be added to the list. Sessions will continue in 2020.

private yoga sessions

In terms of self-care, private yoga is one of the most comprehensive gifts you can give to yourself. This ancient modality addresses mind, body and spirit in a way that few other practices do. If you're ready to embrace radical self-care, contact me to learn more. 

If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by the stresses of daily life and have put your own self care at the bottom of the list for too long - let’s talk! I currently have an opening in my schedule for a Saturday morning private yoga session and would love to help you create space for relaxation, rest and restoration.

(Introductory, one-time only) (1 hour) session at my secluded, woodland studio - or at your home: $90

Package of 3 (1 hour) sessions: $255 ($85 each)

Package of 6 (1 hour) sessions: $450 ($75 each)

Note: Package sessions are intended to be used on a weekly basis so that we can begin a consistent practice for you that will create the greatest change in your life.

 
 

wedding officiating

Developing the concepts of mindfulness, deep presence and creating sacred space, honoring each individual's beliefs and values - these are what matter to me as your officiant. As a certified life-cycle celebrant,™ I create, along with you, a personalized and unique ceremony that integrates your personal story, beliefs and values in a way that makes your wedding ceremony truly meaningful and memorable. If you aren't connected to a specific religion but consider yourself spiritual, I can provide an alternative way to honor this transition in a beautiful and expressive way.

$350 for personalized ceremony. includes rehearsal and as many edits as you wish to make your ceremony your own

$425, includes personalized ceremony as above and a beautiful keepsake copy of the wedding ceremony with marbled paper cover

yoga for wedding parties

You put so much into planning your wedding day. Allow yourself the gift of feeling grounded, centered and fully present for one of the most important days of your life - through a private yoga session for you and your partner, your whole wedding party or your family. I will customize the session to meet your needs, whether you're a dedicated yogi or have never done yoga in your life. Melt stress, open up space in your body for finding your true voice, soothe your emotions - and so much more. From a simple flow or Restorative class to a session that includes enjoying bubbly and locally made chocolate truffles afterwards, my intention is to help you and those close to you create a meaningful, calm and memorable experience.

Weddings are filled with ritual and ceremony , but little, if anything, that allows space for personal, private reflection. This can be challenging to find on your own and is the space that Union Vashon creates for you in order to be at your best on your wedding day. 

  • package for couples $175

    • 1 hour, 15 minutes of yoga instruction

    • includes vashon-made chocolate truffles + a shared bottle of bubbly afterwards, as you enjoy the private, woodland setting

    • after putting so much effort into planning, have a moment before your wedding to get grounded and feel truly present with one another. clear your head of all the 'doing' and stress and give yourselves permission to relax and be in the moment during the wedding itself. this is your time to connect and be with one another. sessions are a blend of slow vinyasa with gentle restorative and meditation and a nice, long savasana. specific requests are welcomed for further customization.

  • package for wedding party or family (ideal for 4-8 people) $225

    • 1 hour, 15 minutes of yoga instruction catered to any and all levels

    • option for adding on mimosas + fresh fruit afterwards - additional $15-20pp

    • a different way to bond with your wedding party or family, relax and have fun together. pamper yourself! a melding of vinyasa with some relaxing restorative for any and all levels. specific requests are welcomed for further customization.

The seed for the idea of yoga for wedding parties was planted when, the day before my own wedding in 2008, I hired a yoga teacher whose classes I had attended and loved to do a private session with my sisters and friends. We all agreed that it was a wonderful way to set the tone for the wedding!
