Mom. Educator. Yogi.
Hello! My name is Erin, and I am a Northern Virginia-based mother, educator, yogi, small business owner, mindfulness coach, and yoga instructor.
I started taking yoga classes in 2008 at my gym as a way to stretch after my frequent long runs. I had no interest in the spiritual aspects of yoga; I simply wanted to give my achy muscles a little love. However, after a few years of regular practice, I started to recognize not only the physical benefits of yoga, but also the amazing effect it had on my emotional regulation. Throughout the years, I have relied on yoga as therapy, helping me deal more calmly and patiently with the stressors of motherhood, and life in general. (OM, take me away!)
Recognizing and appreciating the profound effect my yoga practice had on me, I wanted to provide that transformative experience for others, so in 2015, I enrolled in a 200-hr yoga teacher training program. This was a life-changing experience, as we took an intimate and emotional journey into our souls to discover what it truly means to live a yogic lifestyle—one embodying acceptance, forgiveness, compassion, gratitude, and oneness.
As an educator, I have an intense love of learning, so over the years, I have enjoyed additional training to become a mindfulness coach and a yoga for athletes specialist. In addition to my group yoga and mindfulness experiences in nontraditional spaces, I am proud to offer workshops and small group and private lessons helping educators, athletes, and anyone with a yen to improve mental and physical presence, balance, strength, and flexibility.
I hope that you pause, take a deep breath, and find gratitude in this very moment.
Love, Namaste & Cheers!
