Erica Gilbert began practicing yoga several years ago but wasn’t a regular practitioner until August 2015. She was drawn to yoga after years of dealing with serious health issues, including Multiple Sclerosis, and cervical and thoracic spinal issues. Tired of being unable to live life to the fullest, Erica pursued yoga hoping to heal physically but also discovered that it provided deep mental clarity and emotional well-being. After 8 months of regular yoga practice, seeing its tremendous benefits on her health, Erica decided to enroll in a teacher-training program. She graduated from her 200 hour RYT from Yoga Source in St. Louis in September 2016.
Erica has studied under Angie Campbell, Chris Yonker, Jacob Kenner, and Julie Funke. She is currently continuing her studies through additional online training with Noah Maze, eager to learn more about anatomy, sequencing, and teaching. Erica is committed to a daily yoga practice and focuses on strengthening her body and continuing to manage her health through her practice. She is a well-rounded teacher with empathy for those struggling with illness. She founded Yoga for Neuro Health and her mission is to make yoga accessible to everyone. Erica also holds a degree in Business Administration from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, IL. She resides in Edwardsville with her husband and their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Charlie.
