Erin’s yoga journey began four years ago after taking a Hatha yoga class at her local gym. She was immediately hooked and began practicing both at home and attending classes as often as possible. She completed her teacher training with Jim Harrington at Karma Shala in 2009 in Ashtanga yoga and has been teaching since. Erin is a gentle and nurturing teacher, who hopes to give students the space to deepen and expand their love of yoga leading to self-exploration. She has a wide knowledge of nutrition, which she uses to complement the yoga practice and add to the adoption a holistically healthy lifestyle. The form of yoga that Erin teaches and is passionate about is Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. Classes are based around the Ashtanga sequence. Included are flowing sequences as well slower sequences where postures are held for longer periods. There is an emphasis on breath, and linking that with movement in order for the student to develop their practice into a moving meditation. Ultimately helping the student to reach a clearer, calmer state of mind.
