Her second love is Yin yoga which allows students to press the pause button on life and connect with their breath while engaged in mindful passive and active stretching, the perfect compliment to any lifestyle.

For many people, yoga is a path to improved health and wellness. For Erica, yoga has become a way of life. After years running corporate HR departments and emphasizing wellness, she realized it was time to reboot.  Now she get’s to focus on evolving her education and sharing what she’s learned with others.

She began practicing yoga to manage migraines, back and neck pain that she suffered with the majority of her life. However, she found yoga spiritually empowering as well as physically therapeutic. She learned the importance of connecting breath with movement to calm the mind and the importance of making time for yourself.  On this journey she found a new path to health and happiness, and felt a strong calling to share it with others.
