Almost two years ago, as a newcomer to Ottawa, I first met Eryn when I signed up for her Intro to Yoga series. Since then, I have continued to follow her and find yoga with Eryn to be fun, challenging, and greatly rewarding. The calm and peaceful environment is something that I always look forward to and my body always feels great after a good class. When a shoulder injury kept me away from my mat for a few months, I regained the strength (and courage!) to return to yoga. I worked with Eryn to find a class that suited my physical abilities and have been so happy to be back.


I was fairly new to Yoga when I started practicing with Eryn almost 2 years ago, and now, I’m hooked! Your sessions, with only your voice guiding me along for the hour, bring me back to my mat and leave me feeling great! I personally feel that as a whole, my inner and outer self has improved. Thank you; you’re the best yogi I’ve encountered yet!



You are my first and best yoga teacher. You taught me the correct postures, proper breathing, and the basics of yoga. I have learned a lot from you.


Eryn, you have helped me on the road to health and well-being. From my first Intro class with you in the church basement to the early morning classes now, I feel your passion and so appreciate your talent and patience. You have opened my mind, heart, and body to a new dimension of fitness. ~ Namasté


Hi Eryn. Thank you very much for making my Intro to Yoga a wonderful experience. You’re an amazing teacher and have given me the drive to continue to pursue total body, mind, and spirit harmony through the practice of yoga. All the love and support is a testament to how much you’ve touched us all! Thanks again!





Friends who yoga together, stay together.
