We are uber excited to have Erica Kaufman, E-RYT-500, as one of the AMAZING yoga teachers leading our HUGE Community Yoga Class at Yoga Fest State College 2017!
“Influenced by Krishnamacharya’s teachings and Krishna Murti’s philosophies, I was brought into this beautiful lineage of yoga. When I think of yoga, I think of life. Through my life with yoga, I began to refine my awareness, my choices. I experienced moments of yoga–true integration beyond the limited body/mind. These moments were so potent that I felt compelled to practice more–to learn more. By age 14, I was practicing 3-5 times a week with my meditation teacher Dr Clayton McCracken.”
