Emily Brenner is a certified Let Your Yoga Dance® instructor, Zumba® Fitness instructor, Zumba® Gold instructor, and is certified by AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America). She also holds a level II certification in Reiki healing and is trained in FuzeCraze™ and SilverSneakers™. Emily believes passionately in the healing power of dance and she has seen it transform people time and time again. Emily has been dancing for over 17 years and practicing yoga for over 14 years. Her experience spans Latin, Swing, Jazz, Modern, musical theatre, and line dancing, as well as various forms of yoga, and she likes to incorporate different styles of dance into her classes. Emily believes that dance is a way for each individual to experience the natural joy, healing, beauty, and self-confidence that lies within. She loves sharing with her students the pleasure of music, dance, and yoga, and the joy that comes from moving to great rhythms.
Emily received her BA with honors in Theatre Arts and French from Clark University in 2007. She is taking a long (and perhaps permanent) break from working in the world of backstage professional theatre, but she will always be a theatre lover and a francophile, and still enjoys working part-time at the French Cultural Center in Boston. A self-proclaimed foodie, Emily loves trying new restaurants and cuisines, and when she is not eating, she also enjoys being in nature, taking walks with loved ones, going to a show, or taking a dance class and meeting new students and friends!
