Erin’s yoga journey started by chance when her regular pilates teacher at a local gym discontinued. A yoga teacher was her original teacher’s replacement instead, and, needless to say, she was not thrilled. Little did she know this teacher would transform her life. From her teacher, she has developed strength, perseverance and as Erin began to improve on her asanas, her perception of yoga changed as well. Yoga was addictive; for every pose she achieved, it harnesses that energy which moved her onto the next challenging pose, bringing her to where she is today.
She has been recently certified by the Yogavatar New Age Yoga School and through it, gained a deeper understanding of yoga, its philosophies and the proper techniques of getting into asanas. She had immersed herself from the traditional sun salutation right up to the new age style, and the many forms of yoga were represented extremely well by the Yoga Masters of the school. They, too, like her original yoga teacher were inspiring.
Currently, as an aspiring yoga teacher coupled with her lecturing experience, she aims to bring the creative energy that her foreteachers had into the classes that she teaches and to inspire her students to believe in themselves, not forgetting to also be accompanied by lots of practice! She is of the opinion that it is not enough to just teach but that a great teacher ensures her students have learnt. She hopes that they too will, like her, begin to reap the benefits of being at one with themselves; body, mind and spirit, both inside and outside the studio, on and off the mat, and when this has been achieved; she would have achieved her ultimate role as a teacher.
