The first time Emily Altimari touched her toes she knew that she could do anything. For the past eight years yoga has been Emily’s best friend, therapist and personal trainer. Eager to wingwoman others into a lifelong love affair with yoga, Emily completed her 200 RYT power teacher training in 2016. When she’s not saluting the sun, she’s writing down jokes and playing in her family band. She’s also a PR and social media specialist at Lincoln Park Zoo. She believes that yoga should be lighthearted and playful. After all, it’s hard to keep a straight face when you’re upside down! Her bloodtype is B+, as is her life philosophy.
