Emily Cordes

Sydney, Australia

Emily has lived with migraine since she was seven, but the attacks shifted from episodic to chronic after the birth of her first child in 2017. As a yoga teacher and Exercise Physiology student, she is interested in how physical activity can benefit those living with chronic illness and pain. Emily started sharing her journey on social media and through her blog Movement With Migraine in 2019, and is passionate about inspiring and encouraging others to move their body more. Every little bit counts! She hopes to shine a light on this debilitating but often misunderstood condition, which is so much more than just a headache. She also wants to share that it is possible to thrive despite the pain, and that staying positive and nurturing your body can improve your life with migraine.
