Come see the MFA in a new light, with a one-of-a kind experience of a morning yoga practice in the soaring glass Shapiro Family Courtyard, before the Museum opens for the day. Yogis are encouraged to bring their mats, build friendships, and feel the energy of the art that surrounds you. After class, explore the galleries, visit that exhibition you’ve been meaning to catch, or grab a post-workout cup of coffee in the New American Café.
Emilie Amstutz inspires her students to find the extraordinary moments in everyday experiences by fully engaging with each other and the world around us. She sees yoga and meditation as tools to help us actively participate in our daily life—and that it’s so much better when we do it together. Community is the cornerstone of Emilie’s mission and in 2014, Emilie opened Borealis Community Yoga in Medford, MA. Emilie leads yoga retreats in the United States and Mexico, and teaches Stand-up Paddleboard Yoga in the summer. She is also passionate about working one-on-one with people undergoing cancer treatment. She earned her 200-hour certification from the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and 300-hour certification from Yoga of Energy Flow with Daniel Orlansky. She is also a certified SPA Yoga® and Broga® Yoga teacher. She credits her fellow teachers and students at Borealis, and her mentors Coby Kozlowsky, Priti Robyn Ross, Lorin Roche, and Stephanie Marango as constant sources of inspiration.
