Erin & Steph are traveling yoga teachers, authors, and movement artists based out of North Carolina and Costa Rica, respectively. Often found co-creating workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings, their teaching style combines precise breakdowns of form and anatomical cuing with the graceful strength of free-form movement, cultivated through slow and unusual transitions that are sprinkled in an intricate and lyrical flow.
Their classes are refreshing and playful, while still always incorporating detailed alignment lessons and efficient bio-mechanical principles. Neither choose to be defined by a particular style of movement, and instead embrace the idea that is it only through continued exploration that we can each craft the ideal personal practice and truly move authentically.
