Erinda Martin is a 500 hours RYT® based in Austin Texas USA, at times traveling around the country and worldwide. Erinda discovered Yoga at first in her late teens during a time of personal struggle and darkness. The sacred approach to Yoga through meditation, breath-work and philosophy brought her deep healing, well-being and vitality, helping her find her own path from darkness to light.
After 10 years of exploring various styles of Yoga and other healing modalities, she followed her heart to further learning about the benefits of Yoga not just as a lifetime student, but also as a teacher so she could share it with the world. Erinda earned her 200 hours RYT® certification through Happy-U Namaste Yoga Center RYS® in Hatha Yoga style with a focus in Positive Psychology.
After teaching for some time and traveling the world visiting ancient spiritual sites across southeast Asia, Erinda felt called to learn more about the ancient roots of Yoga. She followed her heart this time to the birthplace of Yoga in the foothills of the Himalayas where she studied and practiced with lifetime Yogis in the the beautiful country of India. While exploring the country and living there for three months she earned her 300 hours RYT® certification through Rishikesh Yogpeeth RYS® in Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga styles, making her a 500 hours RYT®. She continues to learn and grow through ongoing Continuing Education training, as well as through her close relationships to her teachers and life experiences.
Erinda is dedicated to bringing Yoga to those who seek healing the most and have access to it the least. She is contributing in her own unique way in creating a new paradigm where Yoga and Meditation are essential aspects of everyone’s daily life, by sharing her light with the world daily, on and off the Yoga mat.
