From an early age, Erich’s mother guided him to explore. Later in life, upon beginning college in Iowa and being encouraged by his brother, Erich began practicing yoga. Since then, Erich’s practice has evolved and weaved into his whole life. He is very thankful for the many teachers he has learned with and for the beautiful community of yoga students he practices alongside. Through studying in and completing the 200-hour training The Center School of Yoga, his teaching has taken on new explorations and deeper meaning.
When not teaching at The Center, Erich educates students in Chemistry and Earth Science at Harrisonburg High School. He enjoys reading, running, farming, and petting his two cats, Pachacutec and Flora.
