Erika Thomason

“Every day I get on the mat, I learn something new about my Self. My body moves, my breath flows, my energy shifts and my mind and heart open. That’s the pure, subtle power of yoga.”

Erika discovered yoga in 2004 as a supplement to her marathon training. A perfectionist at heart, it was the physical practice of yoga that exposed her own self-sabotaging ways of thinking and how these habits were preventing her from living a life of joy.

Combining her love of alignment-based Vinyasa Flow with intelligent sequencing, Erika playfully encourages her students to safely dive in and move through the darker recesses of their bodies and minds to find the true center of who they are and what they have to offer to the world.

Erika also leads Restorative, Yin and Hatha yoga classes. She is certified
at the 200ERYT and 500RYT levels and has gratefully worked under the
guidance of Jeanmarie Paolillo, Jillian Pransky, and Chrissy Carter
(YogaWorks, New York City, 2009/2011).
