Erin Coonan Schmidt
Erin (RYT200) completed her teacher training in 2012 at Innerlight Center for Yoga and Meditation with two amazing yoga mentors Patti Doyle and Liz Lindh. She came to yoga in 2010 when treatment from a cancer diagnosis left her exhausted, emotionally and physically. She attributes her healing, inside and out, to her practice and hopes to assist others along their path.
Erin focuses on pranayama as a vehicle to quieting the mind, drawing focus inward and slowing down. Erin ties yogic philosophy and readings into her teachings, as a means to broaden students’ perspective and to assist in deepening their practice off the mat.
She completed the All That Matters Yin Yoga and Meditation teacher training with Jenn Thomas and Dr. Tracey Sondik and draws influence from her Restorative studies with Sudha Carolyn Lundeen. Erin has also completed the Off the Mat Yoga Purpose and Action leadership intensive with Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, and Suzanne Sterling.
Erin is proud of her role as VTT assistant at the Lakshmi Rising School for Yoga teacher training with Liz Lindh at The Sanctuary at Two Rivers in Costa Rica.
