We're glad you're here. We help people who are stuck, overwhelmed, or at a performance plateu to use Intrinsic Skills that work with your human physiology to create reliable response patterns of wellbeing and personal power. Our training helps everyone from athletes, active duty military, combat veterans, first responders, recovery and corporate groups.
We start by challenging your patterns and limitations. Sometimes this means chilling out in a cold plunge, for others it's chilling out in meditation. We read your system and adjust your response accordingly.
Next we align you with your intrinsic motivation for change, and with evidence-based Intrinsic Skills which align with the innate wisdom of your mind, body and nature.
As you practice Intrinsic Skills you activate healing in the nervous system, belly, brain, and entire body. Over time you arrive at a destination you didn't know was possible from where you started.
in studio or remotely
In your first session we'll discover your vision and deep, internal why for reaching out to optimize your health and performance. An assessment of your breath and stress profile help establish a baseline for recommendations. From there, a custom plan is put in play that fits your needs to disrupt obstacles and move energy forward with accountability and support. Your program may include:
Yoga and Somatic Movement

"I learned more in one workshop with Emily than in 8 weeks of yoga with the V.A. "
"This was the first class breathing class that I actually made it through without having a nervous breakdown. I have been through years of pulmonary rehab and never once has this material been presented in a way that was helpful. Emily did such an amazing job and presented breath work in a manner that was so open and supportive. She taught the material but left areas available to make it yours and make it work for you, offering modifications, different breath rates and techniques. She was extremely attuned to disabilities and ensured that I was comfortable throughout the class."
"The yoga experience was great, as I stated during the session I have tried yoga several times and really did not get anything out of it. Emily did a fantastic job understanding our injuries, and needs as a couple. She tailored her knowledge of yoga to help us as a couple and be more effective in our daily life. I personally made a better connection with her and yoga than anyone else in the yoga field. Her techniques, approach and knowledge made sense to us and what we needed in our relationship."
"Emily has a profound ability to hold valuable and transformative space for the people she works with. When you are talking with her, you feel completely seen, heard, and accepted. Emily's extensive training in yoga, nutrition, and other healing approaches is evident as she organically and intuitively weaves her knowledge into her group and individual offerings. She has added an undeniable depth and richness to all of the wellness and yoga trainings we've collaborated together on. Combine her experience with a unique ability to bring her fullest presence to everything she does, and you have an incredible healer and fierce advocate at your service!""
"Emily Hightower’s discipline, continuing deep practice, and devotion to the ancient tradition of Yoga is refreshing in the sea of knock-off yoga classes that abound in our culture. The practice of Yoga is a life-long journey, not a destination, and Emily is a trusted and gifted guide to support me along the way"
"As a person with the disease of addiction, I needed help on my path to recovery. Initially, Emily and I worked intensively on nutrition (later continuing with yoga). For the first time, the results I achieved became directly aligned with my effort. My sleep, strength, focus, presence of mind, and overall health increased in important and powerful ways. The personal growth and health I enjoy today exceeds everything I imagined. Honoring my mind, body, and spirit through the path Emily has shown me is a cornerstone in my safety from active addiction, and it has cultivated and nurtured a deep and true sense of happiness, joy, and contentment. Emily has become one of my greatest teachers and coaches, whose gifts have benefited me in unique, profound, and life-changing ways. "
