Emily Gold, Yoga Therapist, MsPH
New York Native Emily Gold is a yoga therapist and teacher, doula and public health specialist residing in Brussels Belgium. She has been practicing yoga since 2003 and after completing her university degree in 2006 she travelled to Thailand where she first discovered the joys of meditation. Faced with seizures from a benign brain tumor in 2008, Emily first learned of the healing power of yoga, turning to her regular practice as a relief for the physical and mental pain she was experiencing. This healing path led her to pursue yoga teacher training, beginning in 2013 and she became a yoga therapist in 2017.
Emily is trained in a variety of yogic modalities including Hatha, Yin, Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga and Womb Yoga. She weaves these modalities to create practices and teachings that are gentle and accessible, focusing on acceptance, growth and healing. Emily has practiced yoga on 4 continents and truly believes that there is a yoga practice out there for everyone.
As a trained doula she is committed to working with women to help them feel safe, healthy and empowered during their pregnancy, birth and postnatal period.
When not on her mat Emily can be found attending a birth, reading, knitting or spending time with her husband, young son and their adopted Ethiopian street dog, Puddles.
