Welcome to with erika,
With our fast paced lives and constant demands we all need some time to centre and ground ourselves. I am here to help you achieve this. As a Pilates and Yoga teacher I will facilitate your journey to connect your mind and body to find a sense of calm and strength from within.
I began teaching movement after a career as a dance and costume artist. I trained at Laban and University of Limerick, MA in Contemporary Dance where I found Pilates and Yoga filled the fundamental role for injury prevention, body conditioning, clarity of mind, creativity and emotional balance. I have continued to feel this long list of benefits in my daily life and wish to share these with you.
Each of my students is unique. They all have different needs and their learning styles can range greatly. This is important to me as a teacher, I am constantly learning from my students, blending and adapting so their potential can be fulfilled. I will work with you to reach your personal goals .. maybe even lead you beyond! Even within group classes, all levels are catered to and each individual can control how far they wish to take their practice on any given day. I believe listening to your body is the key to progressing in a practice and preventing injury. I will help you to start tuning in and learning how your body likes and wants to move naturally.
My Pilates training is with internationally accredited STOTT Pilates, Matwork, Injury and Pre/Post – Natal. I completed my Vinyasa Flow Yoga 200hr at Sadhaka, London and Pregnancy Yoga with Yoga mama. Combining this training with my personal experience of Somatics, natural movement and mindfulness I aim to help you improve your well- being and happiness.
