Erin Ehlers: E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, RES-CPT, YACEP
Erin has been teaching yoga and movement throughout the Seacoast for over 16 years, and opened Yoga on the Hill in 2008. With over 2,280 hours of professional training, and 11,500 hours of teaching experience, she offers classes that are safe, creative and pedagogically sound.
Erin seeks quality over quantity. By coaxing a pose out of understanding and clarity, her classes create challenge by releasing tiresome habits and infusing new strength within neglected spaces. In addition to being a yoga teacher, she is certified as a yoga therapist.
Erin teaches with a deep knowledge of how movement happens. She weaves the tenets of yoga philosophy into the instruction of movement and yoga poses. She has spent many years as a student of Iyengar yoga, and so carries tradition and devotion in her heart. However, she delves passionately into the science of biomechanics and kinesiology to teach from a perspective that questions assumptions about yoga posture practice. You'll hear equal amounts of Sanskrit and anatomy in her classes.
She lives on Orange Circle Farm with her husband, Jeff, in Berwick. She works with Jeff as an organic vegetable and flower farmer. She is currently training to become licensed massage therapist.
Her professional accreditation include:
C-IAYT: Certified as a Yoga Therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapists
E-RYT 500: an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher, at the highest designation recognized by the Yoga Alliance
YACEP: a Yoga Alliance certified continuing education provider
Additional professional training includes:
220 hours of teacher training with Kofi Busia
500 hour Art of Teaching training with Barbara Benagh
