Erica Taxin Bleznak, CYT, M.S.W: I began my 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 me to the path of Yoga. In 2005, I met my primary teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll and completed the Pranakryia Yoga Teacher training. I have been teaching private yoga for over 9 years, and am continually amazed at the transformative aspects of the Practice. I enjoy working with individuals with varying abilities–meeting each student in the place they are in. I truly believe that the Practice is accessible to everyone and with patience and breath that anything is possible.
