Licensed GYROTONIC® Instructor
Emily Christianson has been a lover of movement since she began taking formal dance classes at the age of three.
After graduating from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville with double majors in French and English and a minor in Dance, Emily moved to New York City to pursue more in-depth dance training and performing opportunities. While living in New York she began practicing Pilates mat exercises regularly and studied Pilates privately with a friend who was working towards her Pilates certification.
Shortly after moving to Atlanta in 2006, Emily became a fully certified Pilates instructor through the Power Pilates program at Studio Lotus.
During her Pilates apprenticeship, she was introduced to the Gyrotonic Expansion System and immediately fell in love with the organic spiraling and three-dimensional movements of Gyrotonic after just one session.
She completed her Gyrotonic Level 1 certification in 2009 with Master Trainer Bradley Kreamer. Since then, Emily has also studied with Master Trainers Juergen Bamberger and Kathy Van Patten and completed trainings in the Leg Extension Unit, Jumping Stretching Board, and Archway.
In addition to her Pilates and Gyrotonic practices, Emily practices yoga and meditation and still dances professionally in Atlanta. She has two beautiful children who help her keep her sense of humor and perspective. Emily considers herself a student first, and teacher second, and cherishes the opportunity to learn from her clients. She strives to create a supportive space for all people to heal and express themselves through movement.
