Erin Ward strives to find out what it means to thrive and how to help others to do the same. Movement, breath, and meditation have evolved as her primary access points to freedom from suffering states of being.
Born and raised on the east coast, Erin defined herself early on as an athlete, spending most of her time on the basketball court, the lacrosse field, and the track. It was when she landed in NYC for college that her world turned upside down. Battling anxiety, Erin was baptized into the yoga practice and never looked back. She took solace in intentional movement and patient, meditative breathing. The yoga practice took her out of the mind chatter and into her body — physically, emotionally, and energetically. From a place of mental and emotional rock bottom, through the dedication of practice and perseverance, Erin emerged as a 750hr RYT yoga, meditation, breathwork teacher with a mission to make as big of an impact on the lives of the community as possible.
As a teacher and a writer, Erin looks for the weaving together of philosophy and practicality to foster a safe space for people to come, just as they are, move and breathe through whatever they’re going through, and tap into something bigger than their personal story. In her opinion, the linking of breath and movement is a poetry that carries us to a higher state.
Erin leads international retreats and is also one of the teachers for The Class by Taryn Toomey method. She currently lives in LA and has dreams of finding her perfect dog.
