Erika began her journey on the path of yoga in 2009. Having a background in Exercise Science and a career as a personal trainer, she was initially attracted to the practice for the fitness benefits. It didn’t take long before the transformation occurring from within, led her to complete her first 200 RYT program in 2014, centered around the practice of power vinyasa flow. After two years of teaching, Erika was compelled to return to deepen her studies of yoga and completed her second 200 RYT in January of 2018, graduating from the School of Gentle Yoga with an additional focus on the awareness and the wisdom of the “subtle” effects of the practice. She is currently working on her 500 RYT.
Erika’s approach to teaching is centered around the breath, as she feels this is where the timeless aspect of awareness in the present moment begins. She supports her students with cues for safety and alignment and an emphasis on listening to their own inner wisdom, allowing for discovery of their freedom within the practice.
