Originally from Brazil, Erica first worked with the body through performance art, acrobatics and theatre. As a performer she became enamoured with going to yoga classes where she found the connection between her physically intense body work in the theatre and eastern practices that promotes mindfulness through physical movement as a vehicle to spirituality. This sparked a lifelong interest in exploring conscious movement and the connection of mind, body and spirit.
Erica subsequently completed a 200 hour Hatha yoga with Elena Voyce, followed by a 500 Hour certification with the renowned Edward Clark’s much celebrated Tripsichore Yoga, and Acro Yoga level 1 and 2 with founders Jason Nemer & Jenny Sauer Klein. Erica is one of the most highly trained AcroYoga teachers in the world and is a mentor for other teachers. She is also a qualified Thai massage therapist and enjoys incorporating the knowledge of this ancient healing art into her teachings.
Erica’s classes intrinsically possess an elegant beauty and fluidity. They are the ideal vehicle to express the themes of harmony, balance, spirituality, joy, bliss and mysticism.
Thoughtfully and playfully sequenced to inspire stillness through dynamic and exhilarating motion, the practice places an awareness on the subtle energetic movements in the body and breath, through a beautifully seamed vinyasa resulting in a smooth and uniform state.
Based in London Erica teaches regular classes, private lessons, retreats and immersions internationally.
