About Me

My photo
Philadelphia, PA, United States
My work as a teacher, writer and artist draw from several traditions and are connected by an underlying interest in sharing the joy of wakefulness. I bring over 10 years of experience practicing and teaching vinyasa and other forms of yoga. I have also studied Zen and Tibetan Buddhism in depth both as an undergraduate and in other formal educational settings. In addition I draw from disciplines such as contemporary and improvisational dance, acrobatics and parkour. My group classes are called "Dynamic Vinyasa" and draw upon knowledge of those traditions to enrich the postures, sequences and transitions that we practice. Classes emphasize expanding movement capacity to promote healing the body and celebrating being alive. In one on one work I spend time getting to know each student and developing a program that draws upon their strengths while addressing weaknesses, illuminating blind spots and leaning into unexplored areas where joy and healing are possible. In addition to my work I am the happy father of a wonderful boy named Max and husband to an incredible wife named Jessica. We live together a few blocks away from the Yoga and Movement Sanctuary where I work.
"Emile Sorger is an old soul with a highly intelligent movement perspective and practice that holds true to the core values I believe in, while bravely breaking away from the old school dogma that can sometimes serve to hold us back from advancing to the next realm."

- Alex Auder, founder of Magu Yoga and one of the top 25 most influential Yoga teachers in the U.S. (Sonima)
