The Yoga Experience Teachers: Erin Widman

Erin Widman is both a teacher and the owner of The Yoga Experience, a yoga studio that’s celebrating its 15th year in downtown Flagstaff.  Erin, who began her study of yoga in Seattle in 1988 as a freshman at The University of Washington, has been teaching in Flagstaff since 2000. Her studies have included learning from great teachers within the Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Anusara methods of yoga.

For Erin, yoga is a way of life; it is an avenue for self-discovery and the impetus to live a good, sustainable life. The brilliance and philosophy of yoga transformed and inspired her view of all that a good life entails. She brings an enchantment with the metaphor of poetry and her desire for a good life into her teaching. She encourages students to enhance their physical awareness, strength, and health while discovering their own creative expression and intent.

She has degrees in both Human Psychology and Environmental Planning and is the author of Sleeping Bag Yoga: For Hikers, Bikers, and Paddlers. When not teaching yoga, Erin loves spending time outside and with her family, which includes her two children, Noah and Ruby, who charm and inspire her with their very distinct and sweet-spirited souls.
