Erica is one of Studio Red's studio managers. After growing up in Portland, Oregon, Erica first discovered yoga during her photography studies in Santa Barbara, California. She found yoga perfectly balanced her active and busy lifestyle and went on to complete yoga teacher training alongside her photography degree. After moving to Perth she decided to dedicate 100% to yoga and teaching and it has become her life's work and focus. Now based in New Zealand running Studio Red, Erica wants to break down yoga stereotypes and show that yoga is for anyone who has a desire to become a better version of themselves through hard work and dedication. As she puts it 'hot yoga starts at level hard'. She has found the benefits of a yoga practice has touched every aspect of her life and has made it her goal to share that with as many people as possible. At Studio Red, Erica teaches Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin to eclectic soundtracks including the Weeknd and Bob Moses and likes nothing more than seeing an equally diverse mix of yogis on the mat – to her, that's the true face of yoga, no exclusivity, all are welcome and supported. Off the mat, she is passionate about veganism, cycling, music, family and friends.
