Erica Glass, RYT 200
Alaska State Director | Wasilla, AK

From her first yoga practice many years ago, Erica noticed the effect mindful movement had on her depression and overwhelming emotions. She knew she had to share this with others battling mental health issues and those who did not feel connected to the Holy Spirit. This self-actualization is what drove her to seek out teaching.

In October 2019, Erica became a registered yoga instructor (200 level) through YogaFaith; with specializations in Trauma Sensitive Yoga, Meditation, and Nidra. 

She volunteers as the Alaska State Manager for the nonprofit, Veterans Yoga Project. She loves to hold space for anyone dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress and to those who provide care and support to those individuals. 

You can find Erica teaching yoga on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson at Buckner Gym every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:15pm and her gentle flow yoga class for veterans at Yoga Om (Wasilla, AK) every Sunday at 4:00pm. All are welcome!
