Private & Prenatal Yoga Teacher and Doula in Los Angeles

Nurturing Joyous Life

Emily Herakovich: Private & Prenatal Yoga Teacher, Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator and Ayurvedic Consultant in Los Angeles

Emily came to yoga over ten years ago in pursuit of exploration. That yearning for something more ultimately led to a complete career change 5 years after that first class, from the corporate real estate world onto the wooden floors of yoga studios across Los Angeles. Emily is now trained in Pre/Post natal Yoga (Silver Lake Yoga, 2013), Ayurvedic Yoga (Dancing Shiva, 2012), Vinyasa Flow, Yoga Therapy and Restorative Yoga (YogaWorks 500 RYT 2012 & 2015). Her teaching integrates aspects of many forms of yoga, with an emphasis on the internal work necessary for happiness and growth. She further complements her work with Ayurvedic philosophy and bodywork learned through her apprenticeship training in Ayurvedic medicine (Center for Ayurveda 2012-2015). Emily works to live and to teach living in harmony with nature and soul.

In 2014, Emily turned her focus to the birth world with a role as a doula (BINI Birth) in the community, assisting and supporting parents through their childbirth and postpartum experiences. After which, she completed her training as a certified Infant Massage Educator (Infant Massage USA, 2015) to further assist babies in their transitions and growth. And then went on to complete her Childbirth Educator Certification in 2017 (ICEA). Her background and experience in Yoga and Ayurveda give her a unique perspective on childbirth and the transformation into parenthood. Emily seeks to support parents in having a beautiful and positive birth and parenting experiences.
