a bit about Emily

Emily loves to step beyond the surface and tap into the true nature of what connects and drives us all; asking questions like - who were we, before the world told us who we needed to be.

She grew up in Connecticut, traveled to North Carolina for school, and then began her career in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, before returning to New York City where she met her Guru, Maharishi Vyasanand Saraswati (Thom Knoles).

Emily has a warm and welcoming personality which she brings to each encounter with new students. She grew as a teacher after graduating from her training in India and living a nomadic lifestyle.

During her formative teaching years she watched as her adventurous and fearless nature flourished by teaching everywhere from Canada, to the Netherlands, Australia, India, Israel, and throughout the United States.

Then, one day and somewhat unexpectedly, she met her partner David Lahav, whom she would soon marry and together they would build a home and thriving meditation community.

Currently, Emily lives in Boulder, Colorado where she teaches meditation courses from her home in the mountains, as well as advanced knowledge retreats, and rounding retreats.

She is the co-founder of the non-profit Meditate for World peace which aims to bring meditation to conflict zones.

Emily teaches often in Boulder Colorado and Austin Texas with private courses arranged upon request.

She was personally trained
by Thom Knoles

Thom is recognized as the pre-eminent master of Vedic wisdom in the west and known as a Maharishi (or Seer) in the east; he has taught more than 50,000 people how to meditate.

Emily met Thom while living in New York City and admired how he exuded bliss and yet somehow was completely relatable and living a modern lifestyle.

He would become her Guru.

During one of her private mentoring sessions with Thom, he suggested that she travel to India to be trained in teaching what it is that he teachers, Vedic Meditation.

At the foothills of the Himalayas, in northern India, Thom trained Emily to teach Vedic Meditation in the same way he was taught by his Master, the great sage Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Emily continues to study with Thom today and assists on his annual retreats in India and Sedona.
