When Erin started yoga as a mindfulness practice to ease the anxiety of working in the corporate world, she didn’t anticipate how her yoga journey would continually change her life~ a true Mind, Body and Spiritual transformation. When she transitioned into the role of a stay at home mom to two young daughters, yoga became a way to find peace and personal time. The longing to seek more of what was beyond the physical practice grew. Serious internal injuries resulting from a bike accident in 2014 led Erin to a dark place both mentally and physically, and yet again the practice of yoga helped her to process, heal and grow. In the fall of 2014 Erin enrolled in a 200-hour Yoga teacher training program at YogaOne to deepen her understanding of the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of the practice. Immersion in ancient yogic techniques (mindfulness, pranayama, meditation, asana) and philosophies expanded her awareness and helped heal her body, mind and soul.
As a former competitive figure skater and coach of the sport, Erin has a lifetime love of the body and how it works. She carries that same passion, fueled by continual study and reverence for the non-physical, into her yoga teaching. Erin feels honored and blessed to share the gift of yoga. She is excited to observe other people’s journey to discovering their own inner light.
Off the mat, Erin enjoys spending time with her family and friends, seeing live music, being in nature, yoga, meditation and the Lake Mills community. She also spends time at the ice rink and teaches yoga to aspiring skaters of all ages. She says, “I am lucky to have found two passions that weave together so beautifully.”
