Steve Emmerman

Steve Emmerman's classes are a fun and playful arena in which students are brought to face, and overcome, their limitations. Students bravely embody their inner Warrior and shatter their "I can't" beliefs, allowing them to walk through the changes they seek, both in their lives and in their practice, with steadiness.

He experienced the powerful healing gifts of this practice firsthand when through dedication to his yoga he was able to mend the devastating effects of a neck injury, incurred at age 15. He brings his gift of sight into the classroom, seeing his students clearly and expertly guiding them to deep physical & emotional openings.

Steve is co-founder of Turbodog Yoga. He has been teaching since 2000 and is an E-RYT500 registered Yoga Alliance Instructor. He works extensively training yoga teachers and invented many of the poses and adjustments taught in this style. He travels around the world teaching workshops, trainings and retreats, with his wife and partner, Talya Ring.
