Having found immense peace from yoga as a physical, mental, and spiritual practice, Erika aims to share this unity with those she meets on the mat. The kinship of the three is described by Erika as wholehearted living.
Erika began practicing yoga as a supplement to a diagnosis of mental illness. What started as a mere physical practice has morphed - over a nine year reach - into a lifestyle she is dedicated and excited to live. As a junior in high school she was able to complete a 1,000 hour yoga teacher training through InBody Academy at Centered City Yoga in Salt Lake City. She spent a length of six months studying the philosophy, anatomy, psychology, and physiology of yoga. Erika completed an additional 200 hour teacher training in 2013 under Maggie Oddette at The YogaLoft. The training was based around an Ashtanga-Vinyasa method. Erika established a great sense of groundedness and fire during her time at The YogaLoft. Although an instructor of yoga, Erika considers herself a student first. Her own practice and teaching style ebbs as she does through life. While attending a class taught by Erika you can expect a foundation of deep breathing and rhythmic movement to couple with the buoyant energy in the room.
