Erica Ward

I love to dig deeply, whether it be in the dirt or during life’s experiences and that is where yoga has its draw for me. Though a good old fashioned butt-kicking is great, I spend most of my yoga studies steeping in the esoteric shadows of the practice and aim to interweave philosophy and asana during my classes. I like to balance hard work with hard rest. When not in the studio, you can find me hiking in the mountains with my dog pack, reading, gardening, dreaming, writing, listening, looking, cooking, and of course, digging the day away at my day job as an archaeologist. I’m shy and soft spoken, but teach anyway because I’m in love with the practice. It makes me happiest to assist students in meeting themselves on the mat and reaching farther than they thought possible. I find silliness and play to be essential for a disciplined yoga practice, as we learn the most as children; humble, enchanted, and slightly out of our comfort zones. I currently teach Yin, Hatha, and Adaptive yoga and have been known to dabble in other styles.
