Emily Elizabeth Cesca
Emily Elizabeth Cesca has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. She is an RYT-200 teacher trained in Vinyasa and Restorative yoga. She completed her 200-hour training with Anna Laurita at davannayoga in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and additional trainings in Santa Barbara, CA.
Having experienced it first-hand, Emily truly believes in the healing power of yoga. Yoga is a safe space to be yourself and to show up just as you are without judgments, doubts, fears, or expectations. Emily hopes that through her classes others can experience for themselves what she knows in her heart – yoga is peace, love, and self-acceptance. Her goal is to help others feel safe, supported, and free to be themselves, while having fun in the process! Emily loves SUP yoga because it combines her two favorite activities – yoga and being out on the water. As she likes to say, Yoga + Ocean = BLISS.
