Corporate Workshops

Geared towards both personal and team development, Emma brings theater games into the corporate world to hone skills necessary for effective communication within the office and beyond. Participants will gain a shared language, jump start the imagination, build confidence, learn to engage the physical and vocal instruments and have fun!

Workshops are hands on, on-your-feet and can be adjusted to work on specific areas where improvement is desired. Using theater and improvisational exercises, groups will be encouraged to work together, trust, communicate and explore. 

For more information or to schedule a workshop, please email Emma at emmasimonsays@gmail.com or call (845) 235-3093.


Emma began practicing yoga in college but it wasn't until she went on a retreat in 2014 that she became exposed to all that yoga really could be. She deepened her practice and completed her 200 hr Yoga Teacher Certification at Atmananda Yoga Sequence in NYC in the fall of 2017. Atmananda combines aspects of Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga with a hearty focus on alignment. She is thrilled to be able to share her love and new knowledge with others while continuing to be a student herself. It is her goal to create a space for artists to balance themselves and have a caring, mindful community to call home. Namaste.
