In this episode I interview one of my favorite yoga teachers, Erin Gilmore. We talk about her recovery from bulimia and anorexia and how she became a yoga teacher after being in the fashion world in NYC.
Her bio is below!
With a fresh weekly playlist and a profound message of self-acceptance, Erin Gilmore teaches students to focus on their unique journey through reflective practice and hard work. Her swift-paced, deeply-rhythmic flow and strength-based training takes yogis on an intentional, invigorating, focused journey away from their ego to a place of peace and self-love. Yoga was the driving force behind reclaiming her own sense of self-love and freeing her from a long battle with bulimia and anorexia. Above all, she hopes to creates a space to practice feeling what you're really feeling, in the midst of a challenging flow, supported by good music, jokes, and surrounded by community. Over the last two years, Erin has also run a monthly all women's class, StrongWomenSF, that benefits Planned Parenthood. Originally from Cape Cod, MA, Erin went to art school in NYC. Eventually relocating to San Francisco on a whim in 2009, she has been teaching full-time for the in the city last 7 years and has 500 hours of yoga teacher training.
