Emma Balnaves

is the producer and director of AGNIYOGANA. After decades of travel and research in yoga and various internal arts, Emma had the inspiration for this film as a way to share the essence of these teachings and bring greater understanding to all aspects of the practice. For herself, it was only when she started incorporating the different internal aspects she experienced the full potential of the yogic process.    

Emma has directed a yoga video and produced two publications, ‘Nataraja – the Lord of Multiple Forms’ and’ Yoga for Women’. She is co-founder and director of Shadow Yoga and Nṛtta Sādhanā, and has been teaching yoga for over two decades. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Design, a Diploma in Marma Shastra and studied ayurveda in Kerala, India. Emma has been travelling and teaching yoga internationally since 1998.
