Meet Erin Wimert
How long have you been at Namaste?
I have been at Namaste 6 months.
What inspired you to become a yoga instructor?
It was the first thing that I really felt driven to do. It comes naturally to me and I’ve never taken this gift for granted.
Your favorite self-care practices?
My favorite way to care for myself is taking time to meditate and home practice.
What is your morning routine?
I recently got into juicing, which has given me so much energy and has been a great addition to my overall health.
How often do you practice?
Absolute favorite asana?
I love back bending! I also really enjoy breaking it down and teaching it.
What is your favorite part of the Namaste community?
I love how receptive the students are.
My name is Erin and I dove into the world of yoga in 2009. Less than six months later, I decided to take yoga teacher training and I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity to leave my desk job and teach full-time. Soon after I was also certified to teach spin and barre classes as well.
I’ve spent a lot of time studying alignment and after taking a 100 hour Anusara immersion with Amy Ippoliti, I started to really find a nice balance between combining comprehensible alignment break-down with vinyasa flow. I also gained a great interest in learning about the chakra system and have enjoyed leading my own workshops as well as bringing this information into to my classes.
I feel in my heart that teaching yoga is my dharma and I look forward to sharing some time and space with you!
