About the Instructor:

Erica Nielsen has been teaching yoga since she was certified in 2008. Her students were elementary age children living in Cape Town, South Africa. The use of breath in daily practice and regular pranayama (breath work) has been essential to her own practice and is reflected in her teaching.
