Emmalyn Tringali began her yoga practice in 2011, when she moved to Laguna Beach, CA to pursue her career as an oil painter. She found that long hours in the art studio needed to be balanced by winding down in the yoga studio. For her, yoga became an integral part of life. The stress of school melted away in the yoga room, and Emmalyn knew that she needed to bring the calm and peace she found during her yoga practice into every-day life. Finding yoga off the mat led her to practice meditation and pranayama while in her art studio. Above all else, Emmalyn believes yoga is a practice without perfection. It is not something she expects to master, but something she strives to embody every day.
Emmalyn became a yoga teacher at the beginning of 2016, when she completed Jamie Hanson’s Empowered Yoga Teacher Training in San Clemente, CA. Shortly afterwards, she received her attunement to practice Reiki. Both yoga and reiki have had a tremendous positive effect on Emmalyn’s life, and she hopes to share the wonderful benefits of these healing practices with other beings throughout her life.
Emmalyn recently moved from Laguna Beach, CA to Chagrin Falls, OH to be closer to her family. She is very excited about joining both the art and yoga communities here. She currently works as a fine art painter and teaches art classes at the Valley Art Center and the Orange Art center.
