  • Level 3 Senior Yoga Teacher (Yoga Australia) 
  • Member Australian Physiotherapy Association (MAPA)
  • Pilates Level 1 & 2 (Dance Medicine Australia) 2007

Emily Eglitis (formerly Emily Smith) is a fully qualified Physiotherapist & is recognised through Yoga Australia as a Senior Level 3 Yoga Teacher (12 years experience) with further training in The Pilates Method.

Emily has undergone extensive training and mentoring in ConnectTherapy and the Thoracic Ring Approach which informs the PhysiYoga ApproachOver the years Emily has trained in a wide variety of other manual therapy techniques including:

  • Soft tissue release & massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Visceral manipulation
  • Muscle Energy Techniques for the Thorax and Pelvis
  • Craniosacral Therapy

Exercise is an important part of the rehab process for Emily. Emily was introduced to Clinical Pilates as a Physiotherapy student and subsequently underwent training with Dance Medicine Australia. Emily practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga at the Adelaide Ashtanga Yoga Shala for five years before deciding to deepen her study in India after graduating from Physiotherapy, combining it with a three month volunteer program working in Nepal. Emily’s subsequent six week stay in India turned into four and a half months at Yoga Indea (sic), practicing twice daily at the internationally recognised yoga school. Emily has received yoga tuition from many skilled and world renowned teachers including Simi Roche (Ashtanga yoga), Prenatal Yoga Training (Denise Clarfield – Canada), Bharath Shetty (Mysore India), Donna Farhi (New Zealand), Simon Borg-Olivier (Sydney) and AcroYoga training in San Francisco (with Jenny Sauer-Klein).

It was through ConnectTherapy that Emily re-discovered her love of movement; In 2012 Emily struggled to run four kilometres before back and hip pain stopped her. She’d given up netball and the range of yoga postures she was able to do seemed to be decreasing. With the discovery of ConnectTherapy and combining it with Yoga & Pilates, she started running completing three 21.1km half marathons before finishing the Barossa Full Marathon in May 2015 (yep – the full 42.2km!).

When Emily’s not at work you’ll probably find her with her family, playing sport (softball or netball) or running somewhere around Strathalbyn.
