Yoga. Essentrics™.  Barre.

Form & Function Refined

 Erika’s training focuses on full-body conditioning and is based on the principles of exercise science, the bio-mechanics of movement, dynamic stretching, fascia training and core-integrated body-weight training. She loves using ballet barres, small weights, fit balls and resistance bands to help you find your balance of strength, flexibility and mobility.

She strengthens where you need it; and stretches where you need to release, in order to build uniform muscle development and effortless alignment. Using reflex driven full-body movements you will unlock your joints, improve your posture, increase flexibility and reveal a stronger, leaner and more balanced YOU.

See What Her Clients Have To Say


Fabulous Essentrics class with Erika at Equinox.  She's a serious motivator for those vying for long, lean legs.  

Kate Daley - Health Editor, Canadian Living Magazine


... what a tremendous experience the Level 2 teacher training was for me.  Erika was a stellar instructor... She kept me on my toes the entire 3 days, sometimes literally and always mentally. She was clear, encouraging, gave very helpful corrections and was incredibly informative and inspiring. — Nancy M. Essentrics Instructor Toronto


I wanted to write to say... just how transformative your classes were for me, Erika.  I am sure I am not the only person who felt emotional at the end of them, or in the days that followed. There is also no doubt that spending four days "in my body" allowed me to loosen all sorts of tension and feeling I had been holding within me for many, many months.

So I want to thank you for providing an opportunity to stretch and shift and feel and emote, in addition to the very concrete and phenomenal instruction of Essentrics itself.  Despite the rigor of the workshops, you provided gentleness, clarity, and a space for compassion--for others and for ourselves. I was deeply impressed by not only the grace of your bodily movements, but also the grace of your teaching style...' - 
Rebecca, Los Angeles


I. Loved. It.  Erika was never trying to sell it at all or say that Essentrics is the only thing you should do- she was just educating us on the benefits so I loved that approach.  I've done 12 hours in the last 2 days and I'm a bit sore since I did push myself but I honestly feel really good!  Which never happens to me I swear!  It's subtle but I feel energized... I even did the full hour with my mom when I got home from training last night! - Tiana, Toronto


Erika you taught with passion, energy, caring, details and it was all inspiring!  You made clear the Essentrics benefits.  I do hope to train with you again. Essentrics is my post concussion workout that continues to change my body.  - Karen, Montreal Teacher Training Workshop


Thank YOU for a wonderful weekend Erika.  I came away from it with much more than I had ever expected.  - Level 1 Trainee NYC Workshop
