When Writing Heals, with Sarah Ezrin

I'm Erika!

I have a passion for helping women in their personal growth, so they can feel that anything is possible in life. Blogging is one way I do that; another medium for me to share a more personal side of the whole journey.

For our 27th episode, I had the pleasure to sit down with Sarah Ezrin. Sarah is a friend and a colleague now, even a brand ambassador for Athleta with me but we met when she was my one teacher trainer in my 300h. I’ve always loved her classes, her playfulness, and her sense of community. I recently discovered another side to her: her incredible talent for writing. Today we’re sitting together to talk about how writing can be healing when we go through hardship.

Hi, I'm Erika.
Your Yoga Teacher and Life Coach.

I have a passion for helping women in their personal growth, so they can feel that anything is possible in life. Blogging is one way I do that; another medium for me to share a more personal side of the whole journey. Self-Study, awareness, and inquiry are a big part of my path. Join me as I use my experiences as the base for the lessons I want to share. I write about what I know and what helps me, hoping that it will help you.
