Erica is Founder & Director of Yoga Sanctuary studio and Director & lead Trainer on the Teacher Training Programme. She has been teaching yoga, Breathwork and meditation for over 10 years and has evolved her teachings to primarily focus on the subtle body, somatics and neuroscience, focusing on the mind-body connection, spirituality, and holistic approaches to well-being.
She is known for her integrity, clarity and presence. Her teaching is informed by a rich understanding of embodiment, anatomy and the subtle body. She is moved by finding the balance between effort and ease, movement and stillness, strength and fluidity, discipline and freedom.
Erica trained in a range of styles of yoga including Vinyasa, Mandala, Restorative and Yin yoga, incorporating many styles of Pranayama and Meditation. Her teachings have greatly evolved from the learnings of the subtle body and somatics in recent years. Most recently Erica completed a Diploma in Coaching with Neuroscience and is passionate about guiding people towards personal transformation both on and off the mat.
She runs frequent retreats incorporating women’s wellbeing, yoga, somatics and the elements. The elements being earth, water, fire, air and ether, incorporated into her retreats in a literal and figurative way. Walking the earth, swimming in water, breathing air, incorporating fire in our yoga practice and ether or subtle/spiritual elements that are believed to permeate the universe and connect all living things. Erica invites her students into the joy of having a moving, breathing body focusing on embodying ease within effort.
