Erin Ehlers has been teaching throughout the Seacoast for 12 years, and opened Yoga on the Hill in March of 2008. She is an E-RYT(500), with hundreds of hours of additional training. Her background in yoga comes from tradition of Iyengar yoga, but she enjoys the richness of knowledge that comes from all lineages. She has lived at the Kripalu Center in seva (selfless service), and has practiced yoga since the age of 19.
Erin seeks quality over quantity, chooses form over force and prefers a look within to a work-out. She teaches intelligent sequences meant to open and deepen her students' practices. She coaxes a pose out of understanding and clarity, creating challenge by releasing compensating habits and infusing new strength within neglected spaces.
She is a founding board member of SATYA, a local non-profit group dedicated to bringing yoga to under-served populations.
Alongside yoga, Erin explored her love of food and cooking while working as an artisan cheesemaker, as a pastry chef, and for the non-profit, Seacoast Eat Local. She lives with her husband, the farmer at Orange Circle Farm, in Kittery.
Her professional accreditation is:
E-RYT 500, the highest designation as accredited by the Yoga Alliance
Additional professional training includes:
110 hour teacher training with Kofi Busia
Relax and Renew® Trainer with Judith Hanson Lasater (restorative yoga training)
500 hour Art of Teaching training with Barbara Benagh
Erin is a passionate student of yoga, who takes her profession seriously. With well over 1500 hours of professional training, she humbly attempts to take part in of the uplifting of the pedagogy of yoga.
ERIN'S PRIVATE CLASSES
Erin offers private classes to students who are looking to deepen their practice or who need personal attention for specific needs. Her ability to view the body combined with her ability to teach with compassion make her private sessions an effective form of therapeutic yoga. She has taught a broad range of students, from ages 9 to 78, for back pain, scoliosis, limitations from obesity, sacral problems, muscle rehabilitation, and joint issues. The cost is $80 per hour session, and $50 per half hour session.
Sandra's yoga path began in 1997, a journey that has bridged spiritual, physical and emotional elements. An 200 RYT, Sandra has been registered nurse for 30 plus years and currently works in healthcare administration. She is passionate about yoga, living a healthy lifestyle and nutrition. She believes a healthy lifestyle can be accomplished through yoga, the healing arts and lifestyle changes, one step at a time. Sandra's classes are alignment focused with a balance of effort and ease allowing for self-exploration and the building of strength while relaxing the mind and flowing with the breath.
Her fun time is spent cooking and enjoying the outdoors with her husband. She hopes to inspire her students on their own path to finding balance, clarity and healing while living in the moment and having fun.
