Welcome to Practical Yoga

Emma Williams

Therapeutic Functional Movement, Pelvic Health Coach & Yoga Teacher

I teach yoga at the Royal Academy of Music for the postgraduate Enhanced Performance Techniques elective run by distinguished violinist and teacher Sophie Langdon. I trained as a flautist at the Royal College of Music and have been working as a freelance performing musician and teacher for over 25 years.

In my late 20's I discovered yoga movement 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, pelvic imbalance 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.

As a yoga educator my aim is to improve body functionality in everyday movement. I teach Hatha Yoga, Breathwork and Relaxation at the Viva Gym in Buckingham and have taught yoga for GWD Performance Bedford and Energie Fitness Milton Keynes. As a pelvic floor coach, I work with clients one to one to improve or rehabilitate pelvic health. I run workshops to improve aspects of women’s health including the pelvic floor, bladder and bowel function and have led a pelvic health discovery course to enable women to discuss, improve and learn about pelvic health.
