Erika has firsthand experience of how these embodied practices can provide support throughout life’s challenges.
Erika has worked with those experiencing homelessness, incarceration, refugee communities, domestic and family violence survivors, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, and other specialised trauma-sensitive yoga programs in hospital settings.
