Bio

Fitness aficionado Emma Manion is a dance educator, artist, and personal trainer who hails from the rolling green mountains of Vermont. She holds her B.A. in Dance and Humanities from Bennington College and is a National Academy of Sports Medicine certified trainer with specializations in Corrective Exercise and Behavioral Change. She's worked as a personal trainer and dance & fitness instructor throughout the Central Vermont area since moving back from San Francisco in 2016, where she spent over a decade honing her craft. Emma has had a lifelong fascination with the human body's composition, capabilities, and direct link to quality of life. Her dance performance work is reflective of this curiosity, and she blends her understanding of movement mechanics with an explorative quality for her students and clients to get enchated by thier capabilities, too.
