Emily Reilly


Emily’s mission is to create a space for exploration of exercise that challenges and enhances both physical and mental health (while keeping things fun). She has been a lifelong student of movement arts and knows that finding the “right fit” can change exercise from a chore into a joy.  Emily’s classes focus on using physical activity to enhance personal enjoyment of life and sustain/increase independence. She has her Master’s in Public Health with a focus on Global Health, womens' health, and nutrition. Emily is trained in: Pilates and Pilates reformer instruction, Elder Fall prevention, Home Fall prevention evaluation, pre and post natal nutrition, and has been teaching yoga in Sitka since 2007. She has received her Spinning (R) Instructor certification and is currently studying for her Personal Trainer certification. 

Emily’s background in public health and womens' health have focused her passions to incorporate safe body dynamics, core health and toning, and healthy body image, while still delighting in movement for movement’s sake. Emily’s goal for her classes is to create a space for personal growth, healing, and adventure. For Emily, exercise is not just a way to de-stress and tone muscles, it is also part of the process of injury recovery and preventative health that assists in developing a healthy well rounded life.
