In her personal life and professional career, Erika has found the laughter and smiles of others to be uplifting. It would be no surprise to see her juggling or holding a glitter jar to make someone grin from ear to ear. She questioned “how can I bring a little more positivity to all”? Once introduced to yoga, Erika knew that would be the “golden ticket” for sharing peace, curiosity and relaxation with the people around her.
With her studies and employment geared towards education and counseling children, adults and families she first introduced the idea of mindful breathing to the people around her. Seeing firsthand the positive impact conscience breathing had on so many, Erika knew it was time to gain more knowledge about yoga.
Children are the future, so she decided to start there. Erika received her certification to teach children through Kidding Around Yoga first and then set out for more training. She went on to earn her 200 hour yoga teacher training certificate from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. She continued on to attend Kripalu Yoga in the Schools teacher training, Laughter Yoga Certification and is an Amrit Yoga Nidra facilitator for adults and children.
Erika currently teaches yoga to all ages.
