Emily Wellington

Emily took her first yoga ten years ago at age 16. In October 2011, a serendipitous & spontaneous decision began a long-term teacher training and certification process under the tutelage of Nancy Ruby. In the past year and half she has enjoyed continuing education with Christina Sell, Mika DeBrito, Adi Amar, and Desiree Rumbaugh. Emily’s personal practice favors Anusara and yin styles of yoga in addition to a traditional hatha flow, as she enthusiastically studies methods of teaching to those with  limitations and athletes of all ages. Her other interests include playing at the river with her gentle black Labrador, mountain biking year-long, snowboarding, spiritual inquiry, and adventuring in the balance between health and fun.

 Christina Amidon

I recently moved with my husband, my baby James who is 7 months, and 2 Boxers, Louie and Serena from Phoenix, Arizona. I grew up in Arizona where being around water and pool safety was essential and was a huge part my life.   We have been very happy and fortunate to make our switch out to Bozeman and start our life here in this beautiful state enjoying all the outdoor activities Bozeman has to offer. 

I have been teaching swim lessons for the past 15 years.  My background encompasses teaching swimmers of all ages and abilities.  I have taught for private swim schools in the Phoenix area that included working with some world renown Olympians as well as starting my own swim school the last two years I was in Phoenix.  I was also a competitive swimmer for most of my childhood through high school.  I was fortunate to swim next to some Olympians and train with them as well. 

I have also instructed water aerobics for all ages in Flagstaff, Arizona while I was attending Northern Arizona University.  The group I lead included a range of swim abilities, and we focused on range of motion and different types of movements in the water to help different muscle groups.

 My practice of yoga started on a college campus as a way to break up my school day.  I was looking for a way to escape  the long periods in front of desks and computers.  The first few months saw me practising, in the gym, weekly. Before I knew it, I was into a studio a daily basis.  For the rest of college, the studio became a second home.
  I’m very thankful for my first teachers at Bodhi Tree Yoga Center up in Calgary, Alberta.  They introduced me to the idea that yoga exists out of the studio and beyond one’s mat.  Furthermore, they exposed me to a wide variety of styles while allowing me to build a solid foundation in an Anusara inspired practice.The teachers at Bodhi Tree Yoga Center motivated me to complete my 200 hour YTT.  I was privileged to study at Yoga North in Duluth, Minnesota and to continue my education in  many workshops and lectures.
