Erin Ehlers has been teaching throughout the Seacoast of Maine for 12 years. Her background in yoga comes from tradition of Iyengar yoga, but she enjoys the richness of knowledge that comes from all lineages. Erin is a passionate student of yoga, who takes her profession seriously. With well over 1500 hours of professional training, she humbly attempts to take part in of the uplifting of the pedagogy of yoga.
Erin seeks quality over quantity, chooses form over force and prefers a look within to a work-out. She teaches intelligent sequences meant to open and deepen her students' practices. She coaxes a pose out of understanding and clarity, creating challenge by releasing compensating habits and infusing new strength within neglected spaces.
She is a founding board member of SATYA, a non-profit group dedicated to bringing yoga to under-served populations.
Alongside yoga, Erin explored her love of food and cooking while working as an artisan cheesemaker and as a pastry chef. She lives with her husband, a farmer, in Kittery.
Her professional accreditation is:
E-RYT 500, the highest designation as accredited by the Yoga Alliance
Additional professional training includes:
110 hour teacher training with Kofi Busia
Relax and Renew® Trainer with Judith Hanson Lasater (restorative yoga training)
500 hour Art of Teaching training with Barbara Benagh
