Erin Ehlers, E-RYT500, C-IAYT Yoga Therapist
Erin seeks quality over quantity. By coaxing a pose out of understanding and clarity, her classes create challenge by releasing compensating habits and infusing new strength within neglected spaces. In addition to being a yoga teacher, she is certified as a yoga therapist.
Erin has been teaching throughout the Seacoast for 15 years, and opened Yoga on the Hill in 2008. Her background in yoga comes primarily from her years as a student in the tradition of Iyengar yoga.
She was 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, as a part-time farmer and for the non-profit, Seacoast Eat Local. She lives with her husband, the farmer at Orange Circle Farm, in Kittery.

Sandra's yoga path began in 1997, a journey that has bridged spiritual, physical and emotional elements. An RYT-500, 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. She is available for private session and can be reached at sandralevin @ comcast . net.
