Eric is a YTT certified instructor under the teachings of Nicolle Callahan, Susie Caicedo and Cheryl Oliver. As a retired MMA pro-fighter, Eric combines the mental strength he has gained from over 17 years as a Jiu Jitsu black belt competitor and practitioner with the physical strength he built from competitive swimming to his yoga practice. Eric intends for his yoga students to leave his classes challenged and accomplished with a greater understanding of yoga through a safe and effective yoga practice. Eric takes pride in providing a unique compilation of movements and music with each class. He spends his free time planning his next travel adventure and caring for his two puppies, Smokey and The Bandit.
