Cambridge, MA 2139
I was training for a marathon and like so many I turned to yoga to both compliment my training, but also to heal a frustrating running injury. I always thought yoga was too ?zen? for my go-go-go fitness lifestyle, but I was in the midst of grad school and I had just moved to Boston from California and found myself in a whirlwind of many life transitions. I needed balance and clarity, more than anything. Yoga helped me heal not only my physical body but heart as well.After grad school, in 2013, I spent some time adventuring around India and Southeast Asia and spent a week at the Yoga Barn in Ubud, Indonesia studying and practicing yoga with teachers from around the world. I craved to dive deeper into my yoga journey and when I came back to the states I signed up for a Yoga Alliance 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training programs with Sadhana Yoga School. It changed my life, both professionally and personally.Today, as a clinical social worker and psychotherapist, my career has always been grounded in a passion for community healing, health and social justice. Teaching and sharing yoga and mindfulness with my patients, colleagues, family and friends is something I love. My mission is to share yoga with people from of all walks of life, never letting age, income or language become a barrier. (Yoga in Spanish with Erika?coming soon!)JMy teaching style incorporates a tradition and fusion of ashtanga, vinyasa, hatha, yin and restorative yoga styles. The class will weave together a flow that focuses on a physical balance and building strength by incorporating movement, breath, stillness and reflection. Yoga helped me to find balance in my life, to find inner peace and challenges me to live authentically. I am looking forward to and excited about sharing the joy of yoga with those I get to meet along the way.
