Erika spent many years of her life in banking while also raising a family. She has practiced yoga for about 15 years.
It was in 2007 however, that she grasped the true potential of yoga. She was suffering from physical injuries and ill health after years of stressful living had taken their toll and found that yoga helped her heal on a profound level.
This is also when she decided to pursue her teacher training, completing her RYT500 training with the Art of Contemporary Yoga.
Erika is particularly interested in the therapeutic benefits of yoga and in stress related conditions.
She hopes that her classes create a safe and warm space, where her students can let go of external pressures and experience a place of stillness and pure being.
Her classes are energetic, yet leaving space for her students to practice mindfulness and awareness.
The practice balances strength with flexibility, movement with stillness. There is a strong emphasis on pranayama and alignment, with the purpose of restoring the body’s energetic flow and creating balance.
As part of her personal journey, Erika has also studied meditation and has qualified as an RYT200 teacher with Inside Meditation.
Erika thrives from seeing students progress, grow and flourish from the benefits they reap from their yoga practice.
