Having been a competitive sportswoman throughout her life, it was a torn ACL that ended her sporting career. Two years later, she found yoga through Groupon and hasn’t looked back since.

Before she started practising yoga, running, jumping, squatting or even touching her toes were completely out of the question. But after years of consistent practice, Erica has never felt stronger, fitter and more flexible. Through yoga, she has gained a greater sense of honouring the body, learning to love it enough to allow it to rest and heal. She never fails to remind her students that yoga is about healing the body, not injuring it.

“Effort before effortless” is how Erica lives, practises and teaches. Her classes are intense and invigorating, but you’ll have to try a session for yourself to see what the #SurvivedErica hashtag is all about!
