Welcome to Practical Yoga

Emma Williams

Therapeutic Functional Movement, Pelvic Health Coach & Yoga Teacher

I discovered yoga movement in my late 20’s as a way of helping me manage a long-term health condition. I was born with a rare soft bone condition (Polyostotic Fibrous Dysplasia) which caused recurring fractures and broken bones in my teens. Functional yoga movement improved my stability, balance, joint stiffness, core strength and gave me the confidence to stop using crutches and improves my symptoms of osteoarthritis.

​I trained at the Royal College of Music as a flautist and have been working as a freelance performing musician and teacher for over 25 years. As well as being a professional musician, I am a qualified Hatha yoga teacher with a particular interest in anatomy, breathing and women’s health.

As a yoga educator my aim is to improve body functionality in everyday movement. I teach yoga to support women’s health, work one to one with women on pelvic health rehabilitation and run ‘Pelvic Health Discovery’ courses to enable women to discuss and learn about pelvic health.
