During a transitional period in life, between a past of professional ballet and a future of the unknown, Erin was dragged to a yoga class by loved ones. It was not love at first down dog, as asana practice just seemed to be a restrictive version of dance. That impression changed one day, when mid-chaturanga, Erin was overcome by a wave of what felt like a complete release of peaceful energy. This “yoga high” carried her effortlessly through the rest of the practice to savasana, where she witnessed a deeper, more expansive experience of existence.
That initial taste of the promise of yoga inspired Erin to commit to the path of realizing truth. She is so grateful to her teachers and students for the opportunity to connect with others on this path. Currently, Erin is pursuing her 500 hour certification with Sarah Powers of Insight Yoga Institute.
