Erica grew up in Arizona and began practicing yoga at age 15 to prevent spinal surgery for severe scoliosis. She fell in love with how the practice made her feel physically and mentally and decided to continue down the yoga path even after she was told by doctors that she no longer needed surgery but was given the grim prognosis of being in a wheelchair by age 40. Now, at 34 she is happier and healthier than ever (no wheelchair in sight) and feels that she owes much of her happiness and health to the study and practice of Yoga.
Erica has studied with many amazing humans from around the world who have all had an impact on her life and will no doubt inspire her work with you as well! She earned her 200-hour teaching certification from the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in 2008, 500 hour Master Immersions training with Mary Bruce and Lynn Matthews in 2012, and has studied with Para Yoga’s Rod Stryker, Michelle Dante, Max Strom, Sangeet Kaur Khalsa, Arun Deva and many others. Erica was also named Best Yoga Instructor in Phoenix by Natural Awakening Magazine in 2017.
She lives in the Phoenix area with her best fur friends – A 10 year old rescue pup, Logan and an 11 year old rescue kitty, Samadhi.
