My first yoga experience was my mom taking me on a mother/daughter retreat in the beautiful Colorado mountains. I was fifteen and did not have any confidence in myself or my yogic abilities. I have learned a lot in the past twelve years since that experience, namely that yoga is the practice of treating oneself to unadulterated time. It is a rare gift in today’s often hectic society; a gift that is given by making the decision to show up on the mat. I have learned that it does not matter if you are doing a perfect and complicated asana or spending your time on the mat breathing in devotional pose, if you are practicing mindfulness, listening to your body rather than your ego, and breathing than you are embodying yoga. This is the gift that I hope to bring form to for my students.
Erin uses only ambient sound in her classes. She also prefers not to use intense, essential oils, or other fragrances in the space. Erin is trained in gentle physical adjustments and acupressure and will use only with permission.
“I've been practicing yoga for 30 years. I began with interest in breathing, focus, and meditation while working with high - risk prenatal patients. As each of my children was born, I applied techniques of relaxation, breathing, focus, and meditation in those life-changing experiences. Over the years, I have studied with several local teachers including Noelle Dijoud, Jeff Tiebout, Anna Pittman, and Eileen Patzig. I received my 200 - hour certification with Nicole Fitzwater Boyle at In Balance Studio in 2017 and completed restorative yoga training in 2017 with Colleen Dwyer. I’m completing advanced certification with Anna Pittman at The Breathing Space, Blacksburg, Va. I have diverse yoga interests including Ashtanga, Yin, hot yoga, restorative, and gentle and warm flow vinyasa. I enjoy supporting students as they discover their own yogic paths through alignment and self-awareness.”
Aaron began his yoga journey in 2013 with a background in athletics and competitive sports. Aaron took his skills as a coach and athlete to the mat in order to bring yoga to as many populations as possible. Yoga teaches that all people are able to find a relationship with their body and mind. Aaron strives to bring that truth to his community.
Through daily practice, Aaron learned how to calm his mind, nurture his body, and clear his vision. Yoga taught Aaron that he needed to pursue a more meaningful career, so he went back to school to become a public school teacher.
Currently, Aaron teaches both yoga and middle school English in Blacksburg, VA.
Ellen Goldlust grew up in Northern Virginia and moved to Blacksburg with her family in 2000 after living in Charlottesville; Madison, Wisconsin; and Conway, Arkansas.
After dabbling in yoga on and off for years, she began practicing more seriously in 2011 while in the midst of a divorce. As her 2015 midlife crisis, Ellen decided to obtain her 200-hour certification, and she completed that training with Nicole Boyle at In Balance Yoga in Blacksburg in June 2016. In October 2016, she also completed BlossOMing Yoga’s Restorative Training.
For Ellen, yoga has been a way to help heal spiritual and physical injuries, and that’s the approach she takes in her classes, which focus on opening the body, releasing tension, and creating an inner calm that yogis can take with them off the mat. Ellen teaches a variety of styles but particularly enjoys gentle flow, prenatal, and aqua yoga.
