I am so grateful for Erica! She has been an integral part of my physical, emotional, and spiritual healing journey over the past year. Her teaching style makes her classes readily accessible to any chronic pain patients. Erica's Yin and Yoga Nidra classes have the incredible ability to activate my parasympathetic nervous system with ease. I have chronic nerve and muscle pain as a result of #endometriosis and #adenomyosis wreaking havoc on my body for decades before I was properly diagnosed. I've tried a lot of different yoga classes but none have been as helpful to my whole being as Erica's. Her teachings and meditations have allowed me to use my mind and energy to heal deep wounds and slowly unlock my physical potential beyond just a pain body. She encourages students to meet themselves where they are on that day and in that minute-an incredibly helpful tool for people with anxiety and depression. She adapted quickly and gracefully to the COVID crisis and continued to offer Yin and Nidra online through zoom, with the additional ability to receive a recording if the time is not convenient. I love being able to continue my practice despite social distancing restrictions!!! Erica is an old soul whose wisdom and empathy far exceed her years. Anyone would benefit from taking classes with her. I can't recommend her enough!

I discovered Erica Woodland’s special approach to yoga a few years ago. After my first class with her I was hooked.
Two forms of Erica’s yoga are irresistible:
Yin - This practice is deceptively simple but a great workout for body and soul. Erica always brings new elements and ideas to each session. The postures, many of which are her own invention, are intelligently designed to complement the theme of the class. She incorporates verbal guidance, images, music, mantras, crystals, chakras, colors, and more, to create a unique experience of self-discovery through stillness and mindfulness.
Yoga Nidra – Erica creates a magical visualization journey for each session that will guide you from the depths of the earth to the far reaches of the galaxies. Her skillfully designed meditations have led me to many epiphanies, insights, and delightful imagery, all of which sustains me long after the journey’s end. The relaxation and sleep benefits are amazing, too!
Erica is also a lovely visual artist. I have purchased many of her wire-wrapped crystal pendants. Infused with blissful reiki energy, they feel especially sacred to me. I am always joyful and feel protected when I wear these beautiful pieces. She does custom designs at your request, as well.
Erica Woodland receives a 5-star recommendation from this grateful yoga student! She is top-notch.
Recently attended an event and can not wait to go to the next one! I never experienced a guided meditation that incorporated shamanic practices and enjoyed learning more about this. Erica combines her knowledge of: yoga, meditation and shaman practices to create a unique and restorative experience. I look forward to her next guided meditation and yoga class! If you want to learn more about these topic and rituals, or just deepen your meditation and yoga practice, then her classes are for you.
I took my first Restorative Yoga class at BRV Yoga with Erica. What a wonderful, relaxing experience. Erica has a calming presence and her excellent direction lead me to my own peace and calm, which is exactly what I was looking for. She displays the wisdom of a very old soul. I’ll be going back to BRV to catch her other classes, despite the fact that it’s a drive for me.

Erica is an amazing yoga instructor; her classes are accessible and deeply rejuvenating. As a teacher, she gives a lovely balance of mediation and mindful movement, making sure that each pose is purposeful and that each student is accommodated. Whether you are a full fledged Yogi or have never done Yoga before, you should absolutely take one of her classes! Erica is an ideal collaborator for creative endeavors; she designed my business logo and I could not be happier with it! She has an excellent eye for detail and can capture the feeling of what you want to illustrate and is wonderful at working with you. Not only did she design my business cards but she made the process stress free and enjoyable. I feel very lucky that I was able to have the help of someone so reliable and talented; I could not recommend her highly enough.
I have been fortunate to have been able to be both a coworker, yoga student and a personal friend of Erica. She is multi-faceted in her talents and has helped me grow not only as an artist but has introduced me to one of her passions, yoga. Through her guidance and knowledge of the metaphysical world I have unknowingly begun my own journey towards my own truth. I'm so grateful that she has shared her life’s passions on so many levels with me.

Erica is truly an inspiration to me. I have known her both professionally and personally for five years. I am proud to call her both a colleague in yoga and a friend. Her elegant teaching style when leading a Yin Yoga class is well thought out and balanced. She takes the class on a spiritual journey, utilizes transformative breathing techniques, and restorative yoga postures.
Erica is absolutely wonderful to work with! I’ve attended her yin yoga class and utilized her skills as a graphic designer. In class, you can see her passion for Yoga. She offers a calm presence that guides you through a variety of poses with options to make the poses more accessible. And as a graphic designer she was very quickly able to capture my vision and somehow fit all my information into a business card sized ad! If you’re looking for a skilled artist or yoga teacher, she’s your gal!

I have had the pleasure of working with Erica for years. She holds herself to a level of integrity that is unsurpassed. Her relationship with nature inspires her art, jewelry, and yoga teachings. Her attention to detail in all her endeavors is astounding. She is grounded, kind, patient, honest and nurturing. It is an absolute treat to be in her company as she exudes compassion, wisdom, and truth. If you have found Erica you are fortunate. She is an asset in business, friendship, and life.

I have observed Erica’s creativity in her art, jewelry designing, yoga instruction, and overall organizational skills in various situations. Erica’s art creations are inspiring and detailed. Her jewelry designs are resourceful, original and I always find a piece that clearly speaks to me. She tailors her yoga instruction to meet the physical and emotional needs of her students. I end my practice relaxed and feeling, “Ahh! That was just what I needed!”
