Erika’s interest in physical health started with her bodywork background and yoga practice. This led her to eventually 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.
Fast forward to 2016…Erika dove into business ownership at The Centre Studio right as she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her experience with cancer has deepened her appreciation for the GYROTONIC Method® as it greatly facilitated her healing process, both physically and emotionally. Through her experience, she has developed a strong desire to help those going through cancer or other health challenges.
Enter into 2020 and Erika has opened up her own healing studio- The Flow Space in San Anselmo.
Erika has studied with and continues to be inspired by Master Trainers Deborah Rose, Adrianna Thompson, Nora Heiber, Elizabeth Dawson, Keli Fine, 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®.
