Erica grew up in the Sierra Nevada Foothills, in the small gold country town of Nevada City, California. Growing up here allowed her to connect deeply to nature and have space to roam. After graduating college with a degree in Business, she gave the traditional career path a try but decided to follow her passion for snowboarding and worked any seasonal job she could to follow the snow. Her “ski bum” life led her to living, working, and making powder turns in places such as Lake Tahoe, Jackson Hole, and Alaska. After a great run she became aware she was pushing her body too hard and just at the right time she found the beauty of yoga and began to immerse in travel and studying yogic philosophies and teachings. This also led to the natural progression of surfing! She became a certified yoga teacher in 2010 and since has taught yoga in Lake Tahoe, Santa Cruz, Costa Rica, and Indonesia. The resume of this adventurous free spirit includes working at a Heli-Ski Lodge in Alaska, volunteering on a sustainable farm in Costa Rica, and teaching yoga at a surf resort in the Mentawai Islands. She continues to teach yoga at surf resorts around the world. Erica recently collaborated with a couple friends to launch a new online community project, Yoga Trade, a yoga website that connects people to international yoga opportunities.
