About Emilee…

Emilee Garfield is a two time cancer survivor and her mission is to help women thrive during cancer recovery, particularly those who have suffered from gynecological cancers.

She began practicing yoga at the age of sixteen after her own health challenges and those of others led her to discover its healing benefits. In 1999, Emilee embarked on a career teaching in the Iyengar style, focusing on alignment, sequencing, and timing in the asanas for a pain- and injury-free yoga practice.

In 2003, Emilee discovered Pilates as a means of recovering her strength following multiple surgeries during her time battling cancer.

In learning about Pilates’ capacity for improving posture, alignment, flexibility, and core strength, she realized that it would be the perfect complement to yoga and incorporated it into her class offerings.

Emilee’s clients feel more grounded, strong, joyful and hopeful after working with her, and remark how she always, “teaches from her heart.”

She lives in Santa Barbara, CA where she founded her studio, The Loft.

Emilee has trained extensively with Iyengar teachers Nancy Roberts, Felicity Green and Elise Browning Miller.

One of the long term side effects of her childhood radiation to the abdomen and pelvis, was the development of scoliosis. Emilee has a huge heart to help young girls (and basically everyone) feel positive about their bodies. She teaches her students to work smart and modify exercises as needed, and not to judge their bodies for looks or limitations.

She earned her certification as a Yoga for Scoliosis trainer under Elise Browning Miller, and completed the Pilates Therapeutics Scoliosis Management Program with Dr. Suzanne Martin.
