Erica Taxin Bleznak

Erica began her yoga practice in 1995 in the Ashtanga yoga tradition, after suffering an injury while training for a marathon. That injury, unbeknownst at the time, was a gift that led her to the path of Yoga. In 2005, she met her primary teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll and completed the Pranakryia Yoga Teacher training. Erica has been teaching private yoga, classes, teacher training modules and workshops for over 9 years and is continually amazed at the transformative aspects of the Practice.

In 2014 Erica developed a teacher-training module titled Wall Vinyasa Teacher Training.  This training allows yoga teachers to lead a vinyasa practice using the wall as a means of support, as an assist to deepen postures, as well a method of refining alignment. In the level I training, teachers learn over 85 variations of asanas at the wall. The Level II training is in development and trainings will begin in 2016

Erica is deeErica Phillyply grateful for her teachers who have always guided her back to herself–to find the answers within and continue to support her on this incredible journey: Bart Marshall and Deborah Westmoreland, Yoganand Michael Carroll, Connie Beaudoin, Paul Hedderman and Adyashanti, the students who come to classes and her children.
