Hi, my name is Erin and I am a yoga alliance registered yoga teacher based in York, UK.
My yoga journey started a few years ago when I was working a stressful job as a chef and wanted to find a way to relax and help myself see life in a more positive light! I went to an Ashtanga yoga class not knowing what to expect and I was hooked! This newfound mental clarity and enthusiasm led me to quit the stressful chef job and pursue a qualification in nutritional therapy.
Eventually, I switched to vinyasa flow and yin yoga classes, as I preferred the variety, and the creativity that the teachers could express when planning these classes.
My love for yoga led me to embark on a trip to Sedona, which is coined as the spiritual capital of the United States, where I first experienced Kundalini yoga with teachers Hari Jap and Sraddhasagar. It was on this life changing trip that I fell in love with the more spiritual parts of yoga, such as chanting and kirtan, and I realised on this trip that someday I would be a teacher myself.
On my return to the UK, I started practicing nearly every day and yoga became a way of life for me.
In July 2018, I set off to Suryalila retreat centre in Andalusia, Spain, to start my yoga teacher training with Frog Lotus Yoga. Here I spent 200 hours studying vinyasa flow yoga, with incredible teachers Vidya Jacqueline Heisel, Jennilee Toner, and Lisa Dunn. I learned how we can extend our love of yoga to all aspects of our life, practicing kindness and gratitude every day.
I can teach classes in either vinyasa flow, slow flow, gentle yoga or restorative. I like to make sure that my students feel welcomed no matter what level they are, which is why I offer different level options in all my classes. I also use physical assists in my classes to help my students get the most out of their practice and improve their alignment. Private classes with me are a personalised, deeply relaxing experience, with a focus on the students needs and goals.
