Since 1996, Erin Wittman has been interested in mindfulness and the ways the emotional body and physical body work in tandem. In 1997, Erin became a Reiki practitioner and fell in love with working with subtle energy, leading her to earn a degree in massage therapy that same year. In 2005, after several years running her own massage therapy business (and also earning a B.A. in History from Portland State University), Erin and her husband Terry returned to the Palouse to raise their family. This is when Erin discovered yoga and it changed her life. Her yoga practice offered her a sense of community as well as bringing back a level of self-confidence and strength that she needed as a stay at home mother. In 2017, Erin found Kristine Zakarison and Aloft Studios and earned her (RYT200). Through Aloft’s Yoga Teacher Training program, she deepened her practice and found a mentor in Kristine. Erin’s passion is to teach yoga to those who have the curiosity to discover new ways of embodying their physical and emotional body through though all aspects of yoga.
