Words From Colleagues, Friends, and Clients:
“As a professional Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis instructor I only trust the best instructors for my prenatal and postnatal training. During pregnancy my body was so tight and I had so much hip pain, etc., I needed help. Erin helped me though it. Erin literally trained me the day I went intolabor because I wanted the baby out. She is amazing!
~Danielle Litman, Certified Gyrotonic Trainer
“Working with Erin has changed my life. I’ve learned how to connect with my physical body on a deeper level and release old patterns in my body. She was also instrumental in my pre/post natal care during my third pregnancy. Helping me maintain my body and then recover.”
~Amanda Daniels Lebowitz, Flight of the Heart
“Erin has an incredible talent for and intuition about the body and its kinesthetic and energetic integration. She applies a lifetime of experience as a professional ballet dancer to her gyrotonic expertise which gives her instruction great depth and breadth. She is sensitive and caring, yet she motivates you to achieve more than you likely think is possible through her intelligent encouragement - the result is an amazing, customized, one of a kind workout and healing experience. She has helped me “connect the dots” many times, and my career has benefitted significantly because of our working together.”
