Born and raised in Toledo Ohio, Erin is a graduate of St. Ursula Academy ('05) and Ohio University ('09) with a degree in Special Education. She moved to Pittsburgh in 2010. Erin's yoga practice began when Stray Dog opened their doors in January 2011. She found that practicing several times a week helped her maintain a healthy lifestyle and balance the stress of a new job and city. Erin's love of yoga, the community she found at Stray Dog and her teaching background led her to enroll in the Stray Dog's first Teacher Training Program in October '12. She completed her 200 hour teacher training in January '12. Erin also completed Yoga Works Kid's Yoga Teacher training with Jocelyn Kay Levy. Erin appreciates the physicality of a regular yoga practice along with the mental and emotional calm that is found by challenging your mind and body on the mat. Her classes are designed to help students recognize their strength within and allow them to float through a mindful and eclectic flow.
