STORY

We did not wake up to be mediocre. 

Story Yoga

One day these two people had a dream. They envisioned creating a community with a unique and original experience that pursues sweat and fosters the potential of others. And then they got married and decided to go after that dream full on. From a lot of late night conversations, sweat sessions, cursing (lovingly) at each other, hustle and heart... Inner Light Yoga came to life.

Lee and Emmy Singer passionately pursue one another as well as their goals. His kind heart and quiet determination, along with her positive spirit and infectious energy, create the perfect balance and dream team. To them, ILY is not a business. It is their hopes and dreams, living and breathing creating something bigger than themselves. This is a place that creates opportunities for others to be fulfilled and recognized.

And this did not come to life by just the two of them and their fur child Winston Charlie. Friends, family, local creatives, fellow yogis, and influencers have all lifted ILY up into what it is. The Singers firmly believe in people helping people. The magic that shines from Inner Light Yoga comes from the heart and soul that is Nashville. 

 
 
 
 
Story Yoga

if you're extra curious...

Emmy met yoga in 2008 and it was nearly love at first flow. With a heartbeat for storytelling and pulse for music, she moved to Nashville in 2011 to pursue her music industry dreams. Emmy learned to balance her role running digital for a roster of country artists by maintaining her life-giving yoga practice. Taking her passion one pose further, Emmy trained to be a certified yoga instructor and following her open-heart and renewed spirit transitioned from music to teaching yoga full-time. 

After Emmy married Lee, a skilled entrepreneur with a love for a good back-beat flow class, in 2015, the newlyweds’ dream of opening a fitness business together took them to California. While out West, Emmy’s love of music and yoga collided when she came across a new style of music-based vinyasa and dove head first into training specifically for this movement focused practice. They both were inspired by the West Coast, but Nashville was calling their hearts home. Filled with gratitude for the open arms of Nashville and passion for bringing music-based yoga to this beautiful community, the Singers moved back to Music City to open Inner Light Yoga.
