Erin Brandao (E-RYT 500 )
I took my first yoga class in college in the early 2000’s and all I can remember about it is that I always fell asleep in savasana, the resting post at the end of every class. An workout that ended with a nap sounded pretty good to me! Over the next few years I flirted off and on with yoga until it became an integral part of my life and recovery after the death of my mother. The first time someone suggested I could be a teacher myself, I laughed and said no way. Good thing the Divine has a sense of humor too, because in 2011 I became certified through Namah Shivaya’s teacher training program and now I serve as the lead trainer for our weekday program. What I love most about yoga is its diversity. There is a yoga style, class, or teacher for everyone. I teach active physically challenging classes like ashtanga and all levels flow, relaxing and accessible options like restorative and gentle, as well as a weekly yoga class just for kids! Yoga has given me so many gifts, from physical health to mental peace to spiritual awakening, and I would love to share the gifts of yoga with you as well. Sign up for a group class or contact the studio to book a private lesson with me and begin your own journey today!
Erin Brandao instructs the following:
If you are new to yoga this is the class for you. Classes focus on the breath, foundations and mechanics of the postures.

Most people fail in their New Year's Resolutions by February. In this fun hands-on workshop we will reinforce our goals and intentions with a visual reminder! We'll use some gentle yoga to loosen up the body and relieve stress, then a short guided meditation to focus our intentions. Next we'll listen to music designed to spark creativity as we browse through a selection of magazines for images that speak to us. Finally we'll put it all together into a vision board collage that will help remind us of and inspire us towards our goals. All supplies provided.
