I am a Boston-based yoga teacher (E-RYT 500) specializing in helping clients build their own home practice and bringing a yoga studio-quality experience to corporate offices.
I love introducing and helping students start or advance in a practice that has been so transformative in my own life.
Erika is a phenomenal teacher! A gifted instructor coupling her background as a teacher and love of yoga to benefit you! Her hands on teaching as well as assessment after each session, she always adapts and adjusts to meet your needs.
Erika is fantastic! I had so much fun working with her. I've had a shoulder injury for a while now and during our first 10 minutes practicing together she was able to determine what was the issue. She helped me to adapt my practice and most importantly, reminded me to listen to my body! I look forward to working with her in the future.
I will either meet the student at a Down Under Yoga location (Brookline, Newton, or Cambridge), depending on availability, or he or she can meet me at my home studio in Coolidge Corner, Brookline. We first have a conversation about why they want to practice yoga/meditation, what obstacles they foresee in committing to the practice, medical history, level of daily activity, etc. and then do a basic test of the client's range of motion in their joints, strength, etc. We then design a plan for how to spend our next sessions, including any supporting materials to help them continue their work between sessions.
Training (1000+ in yoga, meditation, Ayurveda)
Experience (7000+ hours/7 years full-time teaching)

Students of all ages and ability levels. Students with back, hip, shoulder, and wrist injuries. Students seeking the benefits of meditation. Students seeking spiritual guidance to clarify their life's purpose.
A student in one of my public classes told me that taking my class was like watching the Wizard of Oz -she came in in black and white and left in technicolor.
Find someone who "fits" - whose personality meshes well with yours, who is punctual and professional, who listens to your needs and has the knowledge and experience to meet them. Be wary of teachers who only offer a specific style of practice.
I recommend thinking through how committed you are to beginning/advancing your own home yoga/meditation practice. It's not just money, it's time and commitment if you want to experience true growth.
