What People Are Saying About Eryn’s Yoga
Eryn’s ability to guide you to the knowledge of the intricacies of your body is amazing. Without knowing it you breathe into spaces you didn’t know existed and your body moves in ways it intuitively understands. Om
The thing that sets Eryn apart from most yoga instructors is her extensive knowledge and understanding of human anatomy. This allows her to give precise verbal direction which enables students to make any adjustments to their postures themselves rather than having hands-on assists. Sometimes these directions can be incredibly subtle, but when applied the posture completely opens up. The result for the student is a more mindful practice and a better understanding of their body’s capabilities in the postures. The sequencing of each class, in particular her Vinyasa (flow) classes, are works of art; different from week to week so you’ll always have something new to try. Whether you are a newcomer or a veteran yogi, Eryn’s genuine passion for the discipline of yoga and her positive energy can be felt all the way a the back of the room, gently encouraging you to explore your edge and to challenge yourself. If you’re looking for a fantastic yoga experience at any level, look no further than Eryn’s Yoga!
The way that Eryn brings a sequence together with her satiny-smooth transitions from one asana to another, her calming, yet disciplined, disposition, detailed anatomical focus, philosophical insights, humour, and precision, is nothing short of admirable. I have advanced in my own practice from her teachings and strive to have such a lovely balance when leading my own classes. Thank you, Eryn!
“I will miss your classes immensely and can only hope that I can find a yoga teacher as articulate and competent as you. Your classes have given me what I believe is a life-long interest in yoga and I can’t imagine doing without it. They’ve been critical in helping me deal with all sorts of stress. Many thanks! I wish you all the best with your classes and hope that your following continues to grow. You should try to find a way to let them know how lucky they are!” Kevin
I first met Eryn at the Sportsplex, where I was taking yoga sessions because the time and place were convenient. The instructors would change from time to time, but in general we had a class of about 12 people that dwindled to half that over the session. Eryn showed up as the instructor for one session and with her came a huge contingent of students….. I was taken aback, thinking wow – these people follow this instructor around, I wonder why? Well several years later, I no longer wonder why, as I do it myself. I love the way that Eryn makes all the moves flow into one another, such that even the transitions are part of the practice. The practice is intense, yet elegant. The continual movements help to keep my mind on my practice. Eryn’s excellent knowledge of the human anatomy comes through in her comments regarding small adjustments that make huge differences to the experience of a seemingly routine pose, such as warrior. Her corrections, aimed at the class in general, always find their mark leaving me wondering how she knew I was doing that. The opening and closing routine of every practice and Eryn’s soft lilting voice giving points to ponder always make me feel comfortable and at ease as I come home to my mat in her presence. I always look forward to yoga with Eryn. Thanks! Penny
I want you to know that meeting you many years ago for my first yoga class truly changed my life. If you remember I was new to yoga and was in rough shape physically and emotionally. You and yoga gave me strength, clarity and confidence to make changes in my life. In these past years I have continued to practice yoga daily (almost daily!) Many of my friends have commented on how they have noticed big changes in me…my answer? Yoga. Since I met you I lost thirty pounds, learned to BREATHE, and in the past two years made changes in my personal life that have made a profound impact. I am the happiest I have been in fifteen years. I can honestly say that without meeting you all those years ago I don’t know if I would have had the courage to make those changes. Jane
Like many others, I initially came to yoga for the exercise. Eryn’s beautiful vinyasa style is challenging, her direction anatomically precise and I love the impact of her vigorous classes on my body. But when I think about what I’ve appreciated most about practicing with Eryn, yoga bum doesn’t even make the list.
In these last five years of yoga practice, Eryn has taught me so many things: that right now, without changing a thing, I am exactly where I need to be; that the smallest hint of a smile and a long breath take the pressure off wherever it may be piling up; that I am both strong and weak but most importantly, compassionate enough to honour myself either way. These lessons have been tremendous gifts that carry me a little lighter through life.
I’ve been wanting to sit down and write to say thank-you for a long time now . . . You are a wonderful teacher. I so enjoy your classes and appreciate your yogic wisdom, thoughtful sequences, and wonderful energy. You and the studio have been such a gift to me in the past months, igniting a spark in my journey as I search for deeper integration of yoga into my daily life. Thank-you! ~ Student
I had been studying yoga for several years when I had the good fortune of meeting Eryn. Yoga has never been the same since! Poses that gave me trouble or caused discomfort bcame approachable and pain-free. I discovered muscles I didn’t know I had, learned when to tighten or relax them depending on the pose, how to align the body for optimal performance, and what attitude to bring to the mat. Eryn’s in-depth knowledge of anatomy, coupled with her exceptional ability to communicate instructions in a clear and simple language, make her classes the best of the best. My posture has improved, my strength increased and my flexibility is at an all time high. I have never felt better. Thank you, Eryn, for taking yoga to a whole new level of experience. I will continue to recommend your classes to all my friends and colleagues. ~ Anna

Turns out that it’s okay to laugh out loud during yoga. Eryn brings joy to the discipline with her easy humour, uplifting optimism, and blame-free mid-flight corrections. We have seen countless visitors to Eryn’s studio become enthusiastic practitioners. Brian
