student | teacher

Erin fell in love-at-first-sweat with Modo yoga on her first class at Modo Yoga Waterloo in 2009. A social worker by day, and with a tendency toward anxiety, she was instantly hooked on Modo for its immediate stress-quelling benefits and soon developed a regular practice. With that she began to experience benefits beyond the post-class blissed-out feeling that had first drawn her to the mat, and her life transformed. Erin credits her yoga practice with enhancing her self-awareness, her compassion for herself, her connectedness to the world around her, and with otherwise making her a better version of herself. In February 2013, motivated by her desire to share the goodness that Modo has gifted her with others, she completed her Modo Teacher Training intensive in sunny Los Angeles. She has since completed additional teacher trainings in yoga for marginalized youth (New Leaf Yoga Foundation), yin yoga (Marla Ericksen) and the Modo Flow training in 2015. She has a Masters of Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University (2007).
