Erika’s interest in physical health through yoga and movement led her to discover the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®, where she came to appreciate how the body is strengthened, stretched, opened and balanced through the practice of this method. Erika felt that the movements spoke to her body in a way that no other system had before. This inspired her to explore the GYROTONIC® system more deeply and in early 2011 she began her training as an instructor. A car accident led her even deeper into her practice and understanding of Gyrotonic. With her own injuries to work with she developed a deeper sense of movement and how it can aid in healing and recovery.
Erika’s journey brought her to study with and be inspired by Master Trainers Nora Heiber, Elizabeth Dawson, Keli Fine, Adrianna Thompson, and Alicia Rypma. As a teacher she hopes to share with others her experience and appreciation of the holistic qualities she has discovered in the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®.
