Erin received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification in Hatha Flow from Yoga Yoga in Austin.  She is also trained in restorative, yin, yoga nidra, yoga for children (Radiant Beginnings), and trauma-informed yoga, and begins her advanced 300 hour yoga training with Kindness yoga in June, 2017 in Denver.
Working as a therapist, Erin studied yoga with the specific goal of making yoga accessible to anyone interested in practicing because she believes in the benefits that yoga offers. Erin began carrying out this goal in 2011, when she implemented a yoga program for female youth who were incarcerated. Since that time, Erin has brought yoga to both males and females in detention, Hospice patients, individuals suffering from mental illness and/or addiction, and survivors of sexual and physical abuse.
Erin currently teaches yoga for stress reduction, and yoga for trauma survivors. The message she brings to class is that by tuning inward, true healing can take place.  Erin’s classes are slower-paced, and focused on restoring the mind, body, and spirit. They are beginner friendly, rooted in mindfulness, and perfect for people who are intimidated by “studio yoga.”

YOGA CLASSES

Yoga for Stress Reduction

In a culture that thrives on stress, it is important to take a break to relax the nervous system, learn to breathe, and take a moment to rest. In this 8 week class, yogis will learn techniques to calm the central nervous system, and activate the relaxation response, which is shown to increase functioning of the immune system, and overall health. Basic asana (postures) will be incorporated into this class, as well as meditation and breathing exercises. Specific postures will be taught to help target areas where stress is held, as well as poses that combat counterbalance sitting at a desk all day.  This class is beginner friendly.

Reclaiming Your Power: A trauma informed yoga group for women

This 6-week trauma informed yoga group is a hybrid of a yoga class and therapy, and geared toward reclaiming your power after experiencing stressful or traumatic events. This class is for women only, and will incorporate techniques to soothe the nervous system and learn to take your power back by reclaiming the mind and body. Yoga, meditation, journaling, and talking will be included.

Pre-registration is required. Space is limited. Please contact Erin for upcoming class dates and schedules. Phone: (720) 295-9787, Email: erinhenrymsw@gmail.com
