Erin truly believes yoga can be a profound practise of healing, awareness, connection and empowerment. She has been practicing for more than two decades and teaching yoga since 2004. She leads 200 hour foundational yoga trainings, advanced yoga teacher trainings, and mentorship programs to support yoga teachers. She has had the privilege to teach and facilitate yoga both in the UK and globally in a wide range of settings, including SEN schools, refugee centres, charities, businesses, international retreats and studios.
She always has had an appetite for Eastern thought as well as human relationships and studied Eastern Religion along with Family and Child Sciences and Development at University. She continued on to be a primary school teacher in London for more than 10 years. During her time as a teacher, she worked with many children who were refugees from war torn countries, those who experienced complex trauma, and seemed to benefit immensely from the yoga she brought to the classroom.
Alongside Live Karma Yoga, she currently facilitates trauma-informed yoga practices in HMP Wandsworth, for both people in the system as well as staff. She has recently become a TCTSY-F (Trauma Centre Trauma Sensitive Yoga Facilitator) and offers trauma-informed yoga both privately and in small groups.
Erin’s teaching style is a combination of all traditions and schools she has learnt from including Hatha, Kripalu, Vinyasa Krama, Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Trauma informed Yoga. There is a strong focus on philosophy and inclusivity. Her classes may touch upon current events, the nature around us, Buddhist principles, and karma yoga. She remains forever grateful to those who have influenced her teaching, including Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor, Stewart Gilchrist, Sri. V. Sheshadri, Mark Morford, Matthew Sanford, Seth Powell, Emma Henry, Sam & Annaka Harris, and Thom Yorke. When not on the mat, she can be found surfing, exploring nature, or lying in a hammock. Erin currently splits her time between London and Mexico.
