Emily Rushing

Emily is a professional dance artist, contemporary dance instructor and fitness instructor. She started her Pilates journey while a dance major at the University of Texas at Austin. She quickly gained interest in all that Pilates has to offer for the body, mind and soul. The tools she has obtained through her fitness journey in Pilates, Barre and other modes of fitness have greatly supported her movement practice and brought more ease and strength to her dance training. Her experience as a dancer also influences her style of teaching, allowing a sense of organic flow and pace. She has taught at a variety of studios in Austin and abroad in Australia.
Emily holds a BA in dance from the University of Texas at Austin, is a fully certified STOTT Pilates instructor, a dance artist and collaborator with many Austin artists. She is a former company member with Blue Lapis Light and has trained both locally and internationally and continues to find inspiration from all of her movement experiences as a dancer, teacher and student.
