Yoga Moves with Emily Miley – $5 for the workshop or $30 for the whole Body Shift event bundle.

Combining familiar yoga postures, rhythmical tunes and dance moves.  An easy to follow class, with no prior dance or yoga experience required just dedication to moving your body in a safe, feel good, flowing way.  Build short choreographed sequences that open your body and let your heart sing.

Emma moved to Melbourne at the age of 15 to follow her love for classical ballet. She studied dance, human movement and completed my VCE at the Victorian College of the Arts.  After 5 years in Melbourne, dedicating her life and body to dance, her career and life path ended due to irreparable shin fractures.  This was a life crushing moment for Emma and drove her back to Tasmania to seek solace with my family. Shortly thereafter, She fell in love, got married and had 3 beautiful children.  Here is where she started looking for something to move and energise her body, still her mind and provide the feeling of total freedom that she used to experience when she was dancing.

*BYO water bottle and comfortable clothes to dance in.

We have played at some of Tasmania’s premier festivals including the Taste of Tasmania, Falls Festival, the Clarence Jazz Festival, Party in the Paddock, the Mid-Winter Arts Festival and Junction Arts Festival. We have shared the stage with The Bad Dad Orchestra, Boil-up, The 7-Ups and Sex on Toast. We are planning to record our debut album in early 2019, and are in the process of lining up a national tour.
