ERIN FLEMING: Inspiring. Nurturing. Passionate.
Erin Fleming is an inspiring, nurturing and knowledgeable teacher at the forefront of the Yin Yoga movement in Northern California.
Erin’s yoga path as both a practitioner and teacher has been inspired by a gamut of styles including Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar, Viniyoga, Anusara, Qigong and Yin Yoga. She has been teaching yoga for over 17 years to thousands of students, and her classes are a creative, mindful synthesis of static and flowing postures that ultimately cultivate deep body and breath awareness.
Erin’s specialty is Yin Yoga, a profound practice that emphasizes long-held, passive poses which enhance flexibility in the joints and instill lightness and grace in the body. She has trained extensively with Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley and Erich Schiffmann and is a certified 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance. While living in England for three years, Erin was also certified by the British Wheel of Yoga, an extensive yoga teacher training program recognized by the British government.
Erin also teaches Beginning Yoga, vigorous Vinyasa Flow classes for more seasoned practitioners, and an all-levels mindful movement class she created called Qigong Yoga Flow. By infusing her classes with warmth, humor and her extensive experience, Erin taps into the mind, soul and spirit in a way that surpasses the simple physical practice of asana.
Spreading yoga to people in other countries is Erin’s greatest joy!
Through her yoga business, Yogadeva Ltd., she has led teacher trainings, retreats and workshops in England, North Wales, Spain, Denmark, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, France, Greece, India, Bali and Singapore. From 2002 until 2012, Erin was Yoga Director of Bay Club Marin. She successfully built a sizeable yoga program of 46 regular classes a week along with periodic workshops and teacher trainings. She cultivated a team of over 65 extraordinary teachers, acting not just as their manager but as their mentor. Erin still teaches at Bay Club Marin and also teaches private yoga sessions, and she created a program for the employees at Lucas Films that has been thriving since 2004.
Erin’s audio CD, “YIN YOGA: The Essential Practice,” has received rave reviews by Yoga Journal, Yogi Times and Alternative Medicine Magazine. This CD is now available on iTunes.
A distant lifetime ago, Erin was a flight attendant for Pan Am and several other international airlines. She graduated from University of San Francisco and also did time in the corporate world marketing and managing business retreats for Tom Peters, a wildly successful author and business guru. This—and plenty of other amazing experiences with people and places—prepared her well for the work she loves: introducing yoga to as many people as possible.
