Erika has a deep passion for yoga since she bought her first yoga book, back in Hungary. She got thoroughly inspired by the incredible possibilities that one can master through the science of yoga.

At that time, 20 years ago, she wasn't aware of the deeper aspects of yoga, she just felt that yoga could offer more than any other activity she ever tried before. She practiced different lineages like Shivananda, Iyengar, Hatha, and Vinyasa yoga. In 2016 she successfully completed the RYT200 in Hatha and Vinyasa yoga styles. 

Consistently searching for new ways of self-exploration and learning, she completed the Yoga and Mindfulness for kids training, Restorative teacher training, Prenatal Yoga, and a Thai Yoga Massage training in 2017. Currently, she is concluding her last year at the Maryland University of Integrated Health as a Yoga Therapist.

Erika has lived an eventful life. She was born in Transylvania. After graduating from high school she moved to Hungary. Later on, she lived in Germany, Belgium. Since 2015, she's been living in the US with her husband, three children, and their dog. She has a strong background in sports. She competed as a track and field runner, skier, and triathlete. Hiking, walking in nature, crafting and cooking are her favorite free-time activities.



The yoga classes taught in the studio incorporate the elements of Gentle yoga, Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative yoga styles presented in a safe environment ideal for growth and exploration.

The essential focus is on body awareness and a more profound connection to the Self. Students can explore to listen to their bodies, trust themselves and take home that knowledge opening new perspectives in their lives. This helps them gain the courage to step on a new path. Each yoga class is a well-rounded combination of pranayama, meditation and asana practice with Savasana (relaxation exercise) at the end.

Thai Yoga Massage originates from Thailand and it is an ancient therapeutic healing methodology. Combines acupressure, stretching, energy balancing, and yoga asanas addressing both the physical and the energetic (prana) body. The healing power of touch transmits care, love, compassion through loving-kindness (Metta). Restores harmony between mind, body, and soul working on muscle tension, joint, and ligament imbalances allowing the organism to detoxify, relax and fill the cells up with new nutrients and fresh oxygen.

In addition to the palm and fingers, this massaging technique uses the elbows, the feet, the forearms or knees for applying pressure on different body parts.
