Erin started taking yoga classes regularly with friends in San Diego as cross training for running. She never thought she would be able to wind herself into poses like twisted bird of paradise and inversions were out of the question. When returning to Columbus to pursue graduate school, Erin completed Yoga Teacher Training and earned her RYT-200 in 2010.
While searching for the right studio in Columbus with physically challenging classes that combined cardio, strength, flexibility and balance, Erin was introduced to V Power Yoga and Julie Verhoff Pipes by a friend and was instantly hooked. For Erin, power yoga quiets her mind, requiring her to focus on her movement and breath or she will fall on her face. It’s both a physical and mental challenge, and the one time her mind stops running.
Erin teaches an athletic, dynamic and challenging class tailored towards her clients’. She loves incorporating arm balances and inversions into her classes, providing modifications along the way. Erin’s clients inspire her daily and she loves getting to know them both on and off the mat.
When not on the mat, Erin is pursuing her PhD at OSU. She has her MS in Nutrition, MPH in Epidemiology, is a dietitian and is passionate about living a healthy lifestyle. She enjoys traveling around the world, loves the beach, running, helping people and spending time with her parents and friends.
I’ve been a yoga enthusiast for the last four amazing years!
I’d classify my yoga teaching style as a unique blend of energy and passion. I love to find a balance between raw strength and beautiful grace. I put as much heart into the music as I do constructing the vinyasa flow.
At V, I teach Sundays at 5:00PM.
A fun fact about myself is that when I’m not practicing yoga or eating pancakes, I am planning my trip to hike the AT!
I love power yoga because it encourages you to physically and mentally work beyond your potential. It is astonishing what the body is capable of when you feed it continuous breath, movement and love.
I’ve been a yoga enthusiast for 4 years. I started coming to V Power while recovering from a dance injury and never stopped! I still remember making it through my first class without modifying chaturangas!
I’d classify my yoga teaching style as mindful, flowing and creative.
At V, I teach Wednesdays at 7:30PM.
A fun fact about myself is I love animals – I think they bring out the best (or worst!) in people. I have a dog named Copper who is often mistaken for a fox and a cat named Professor Catface Meowmers…don’t ask…
I love power yoga because it challenges you to push yourself to your edge. I love feeling an inch taller after class. I love the heat that instantly softens sore muscles. I love feeling like I’ve spent some good, quality time with myself. Yoga has opened the door for me to be more mindful in all other areas of my life – the way I eat, think and function on a daily basis. And, you have to admit, you feel pretty badass as you’re dripping sweat while powering through those vinyasas.
I’ve been a yoga enthusiast for since 2008, received my teaching certificate in Norway back in 2014!
I’d classify my yoga teaching style as vinaysa flow.
At V, I teach Thursdays at 5:15PM.
A fun fact about myself is I love experiencing new things: FOOD, cultures, activities, travel just to name a few.
I love power yoga for several reasons: the heat helps increase flexibility, yoga adds a challenge to incorporate breathe and movement, and mixing it all together makes you learn to be comfortable when you are uncomfortable.
