ABOUT - The Release
The Release is a physical experience that helps you release stuck emotion. It’s a physical and emotional work out that combines cardio, music and stretching to stir up stress and emotions stored in your body. You’ll use explosive movements like burpies and jumping jacks, deep stretching like lunges and twists and hear healing sound like heavy beats and custom frequencies. Each class is designed to release emotion — anger, fear, grief, sadness. So you leave feeling lighter. It is a deeply transformative release in the body, mind and spirit.
Come with an open mind, open heart and workout clothes that make you feel able to move freely and without constriction. Yoga mats and bare feet are required.
Private consultations are designed to take you (or a small group) deeper and include less intense movement, more meditation and 1 on 1 energetic readings and assessments.

ABOUT the Founder - Emily Rasowsky
Your release has everything to do with you and nothing to do with me.
But knowing where a teacher comes from help you find what you are looking for or, perhaps, what you aren’t. So...here is my story. It’s long and painfully honest.
I found yoga when I was 15. I was recovering from anorexia and I thought that doing yoga would make me look like a Victoria Secret model. Heidi Klum had recently been featured doing it in Seventeen Magazine and I thought Madonna looked damn good so why not try it. I wasn’t really looking to heal - I was looking to feed an addiction to looking perfect. As a teenager I worked at yoga studios. Mostly so I could have access to all the yoga I wanted without asking my mom to spend $1000 a year and buy new clothes with the money I made. Quite evolved. I didn’t live a ‘traumatic’ life from the outside (or the inside really) but I did have traumas that needed some attention.
But trauma - i’ve learned - can be a pattern. At 7 my father passed away and I saw first hand how death can change your life and those you love. It, no surprise, really sucked. I was young and had no way to really know what was going on. So I just kept trucking along and figured the rest would sort itself out but all that emotion weighs on a person, and as I now know, the trauma stays in your body until you actually do something about it.
I never intended on being a yoga teacher or a reiki teacher or a super ‘spiritual person’. I don’t even totally think I am most days. But as luck would have it, a lot of these things found me. If I listed the most impactful teachers I’ve had, you wouldn’t find much on them in a Google search. There is no guru or magic person who showed me the way - although I really tried to find that person. I kept trying to find someone who would teach me the ‘THING’ that would be my signature path or offering. It never came. So I decided to do a bit of my own mix.
Meridians, release work, all this stuff you see on my website and in my offerings developed over time - little bits here and there. No one ‘taught’ me how to do this specific work. Just a lot of trial and error and a healthy dose of curiosity.
I’ve done more certifications than I can count in yoga and energy. I’ve chosen to list these out here because I think it’s important that you know I have invested in learning and I have learned about some cool stuff that I cannot wait to share:
Yoga 500 hr certified teacher
Trauma Sensitive intensives for wounded warriors, childhood trauma, homelessness, sexual assault survivors
Restorative Yoga certification
Reiki Level 1 & 2
Crystal Reiki Certification
Founder of Ascension GW, a trauma sensitive yoga project funded through a GW research grant that studied the positive correlation between yoga and wellbeing for student survivors. It was a wild and cool ride.
Some of these trainings awesome, some were just okay. But I am a firm believer that no training will teach you how to heal - only you can do that. These just show you how to remember.
The truth is we all have something to let go of. Why not do it together.
