About this pro

I try to make the experience as personal as possible. I love to set the mood for one of relaxation and release. I use moodlighting, incense, candles, and calming music. Whether I'm performing a healing or teaching a yoga class I like to ask my clients "what are they looking to experience?" and "what are they hoping to feel after the session is complete. Classes/Sessions can be very different as it really depends on who I am working with, what they want, and gettting those needs met. I am a 200 hour yoga alliance certified teacher and certified Reiki practitioner, my programs were completed with the Yoga India Foundation in Rishikesh, India. I would love to work with you and would be happy to come to your location at a time thats convenient for you.  

I really enjoy teaching yoga because I feel that it is a key to the map of life. Yoga meets you where you're at and it helps you navigate through this journey and be more present for it. When I started practicing yoga I felt like my life whille off the mat became more synchronized, things just started to flow effortlessly and when they didn't I felt better equipped to handle the bumps in the road. 

My favorite thing about giving healings is that it is a different experience for every client. Its really exciting to hear what they experienced and their after effects. Sharing what I saw or felt during the healing with them also helps us to form a connection as well go deeper into integrating and understanding their healing. Even when doing a healing twice on the same person no healing is ever the same, but they are always beautiful.

    My experience with Eric was and continues to be outstanding. Not only did her healing alleviate many energetic and physical discomforts in feel like it has restored, revived and repaired some parts of my neuropathways. I felt my whole central channels realign and now I feel a regenerative process still happening in my spinal column. Before coming in I had a very soar back, and felt extremely exhausted due to little sleep, stress not to mention Jupiter moving out of my sign of Libra! Erica is sessional, passionate and loving.

    A beautiful and enlightening experience. I was under the weather and my back had ridiculous pain going into the session. The gentle music and sweet smells of oils relaxed me upon walking into the session. She took time to get to know what was bothering me before hand, such a wonderful personal touch in all details. Durning this experience I felt my worries lift and my soul cleansed. I came out of it being the person I wanted to be and I can't thank her enough. I feel fresh and new!!!!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was trained in Rishikesh, India at the Yoga India Foundation in meditation, yoga, and energy work. I have a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certification and a Reiki Certification. I'm also trained in Emotional Blockage Treatment. 

How did you get started teaching?

I have been practicing yoga since I was in highschool and over time realized teaching would be a big part of my journey. Before getting certified I did one-on-ones with people as well as led sessions at a few women's retreats and spiritual meetups.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have experience working with students as young as 5 and as old as 70. Modifications make it possible for all ages to do yoga even those with handicaps.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Each teacher is different and has their own way of expressing or explaining things. I would say try out different teachers and feel what is the right fit for you. Asking them questions and seeing if they have catered to someone with your needs before and how they would go about it.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Before talking to a teacher about your needs you should ask yourself:

-What would I like to experience?

-How do I want to feel after this practice/healing?

-In what ways would I like to grow?

-What will make me feel like this was worth it?
