Erika Steller teaches with both deep respect for the ancient yoga tradition and the practices of mindfulness, as well as a sense of fun, joy and lightness. She has a down-to-Earth approach and a dedication to sharing practices and perspectives for enhancing our everyday lives.
Erika first began practicing yoga over 20 years ago, and in 2007 she was inspired to deepen her yoga practice due to huge health and lifestyle benefits through the Dru Yoga style. She completed her first yoga training, a Diploma of Dru Yoga Teacher Training in 2009, and an interest in teaching yoga to children as well as to families and adults has grown. Working with children has grown into a passion, alongside her own experiences of motherhood and nurturing resilient children with spark.
Erika's yoga classes for children are long running and are well-loved by children as well as parents, who see the benefits in their children. She first began teaching these classes at Austinmer 6 years ago - a number of students have stayed for 3 and 4 years.
"The response I have had from children who have attended classes regularly learning the Mindfulness practices, has been so positive. It has shown me that the children feel and appreciate the benefits of yoga and mindfulness themselves. This is so motivating for me. I look forward to working with your children, and thank you to all the children I have had the privilege of teaching so far. I am truly grateful" - Erika Steller

We do yoga through play, calling on the group and individual creativity of students in the class. With a focus on FUN! That's why children enjoy and benefit from the classes. I create an atmosphere of togetherness, kindness, respect and inclusiveness, together with the students. I stay as open to their ideas as I can. The Mindfulness program and guided relaxation at the end of each class are the quiet and more serious components, and are often where we find the peaceful moments. At times these moments that the class share are deeply peaceful. These classes are inclusive of all children, and I teach to see the gold in all of them.
