At Epic, we are a passionate group of individuals, who truly love life and embrace the adventures that lay ahead. We share a love for the active lifestyle, whether it is participating in rugby matches, collegiate sports, ironman triathlons, surfing, or yoga. Back in the summer of 2011, we laid the groundwork and path to create a workout experience unlike any other. Our name, Epic, embraces our vision. We hope you’ll follow us down this path, join us on our journey, and reach your goals…an Epic adventure that is our Yoga Studio.
Emma SaalA native of DC, I grew up taking summer ballet at the Washington School, attending the local University of MD, and moving into Dupont in my early 20’s. Full-time assistant to a real estate developer, part-time cocktail waitress, my life seemed comfortably familiar and my lifestyle pretty unhealthy. A fellow bartender buddy invited me to a bikram yoga class. At that moment, my love affair with yoga began. Choosing quickly to register for the Yogaworks 200-hr intensive.
To be able to share my passion for the body, and movement; to motivate my students to challenge themselves from a space of patience, to inspire them to slow down and focus, I knew that teaching yoga was my purpose. I began teaching all over DC, MD and VA; at various studios and gyms, embassies and elementary schools.
Life is about evolution and transition, and how we respond. To open this studio is my greatest dream come true, it is my path I commit to with gratitude and integrity. Join me, come as you are, welcome to this epic experience.
