Teaching online for now - but really looking forward to seeing you face to face somewhen soon.
" It is not fear that distances us now, but kindness, compassion and hope."
Yoga is therapeutic; it heals and calms the mind, it strengthens and balances the physical body, and the practice utilises the breath to reveal innate natural intelligence. The practice of yoga becomes a precious time to rejuvenate and a powerful tool towards a healthier lifestyle.
Emma Spencer-Goodier is committed to providing the highest standard of yoga instruction, with classes to suit everyone on the Isle of Wight and yoga intensives worldwide.
She is the founder of the
Island School of Yoga
offering training & support for yoga teachers
Originally, a professional yachtswoman, Emma settled on the Isle of Wight with her family. Teaching since 2000, she is committed to providing the highest standards of yoga instruction and remains ever the avid student herself. Her teaching reflects her own journey of yoga, the spiritual balance of Sivananda, the clarity of Iyengar, the flow of the Ashtanga method. This has evolved into a slow flowing, healing therapeutic exploration of the hatha yoga path, providing the sound foundations for pranayama and meditation. Her long history of teaching, first in sailing and then in yoga means that Emma aims to guide and support students in their personal growth through yoga.
‘ Yoga heals. It empowers and balances, fires the resolves and calms the mind; it realigns the practitioner physically and reawakens our personal motivation to live life well and make better choices. Yoga can light the way to be more compassionate, more serving, more concerned, more human. I teach because I believe that we step off our mats better equipped for the day ahead and that ripples out. I am not not perfect, but I hope I can inspire others by how my yoga practice has taught me to manage my imperfections.'

“I am just writing you this short note to express my gratitude for the teaching and guidance you gave this last week. I am sure you reached everyone in that room on several levels. Personally speaking, I got an awful lot out of the time spent at Godshill and thank you for the wonderful programme you put together. It was full of thoughtful words, authenticity and good humour — key components that will always hold my interest.”
