“Encouraging each student to know and appreciate their own body through yoga is one of my goals. I love to see my students gain strength and flexibility, both on and off the mat, and to share the calm and sense of wholeness that the practice of yoga brings.”
Erica was first introduced to yoga at Sarah Lawrence College in NY while studying Studio Arts and Art History. Yoga resurfaced in her life at a local gym in 1996 and she has been practicing ever since. Recently transplanted from the Northeast, Erica received her first teaching certification in 2004 through Claire Diab and the American Yoga Academy in NJ. Since then she has done specialized teacher trainings with Karma Kids Yoga in NYC (2005), Holistic Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training with Gayle Lemke and Kelli DeFlora of Wise Woman Birthways (2005), an Anusara teacher training with Christy Burnet (2008), and The Alchemy of Flow and Form advanced teacher training with Christina Sell and Giocanda Parker (2016), as well as many workshops with expert teachers such as Desiree Rumbaugh, Ross Rayburn, Beryl Bender Birch, Sara and Ty Powers, Natasha Rizopolous, Cat McCarthy and others.
Erica is registered with Yoga Alliance (500 RYT and certified to teach pre-natal, post-natal and kids yoga) and is available for private sessions.
