Eric recently completed his 200-hour yoga teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbridge, Mass. He found yoga (or, rather, yoga found him) a few years ago and he has been hooked ever since. After making several visits to Stockbridge for weekend programs, Kripalu became an obvious choice when he decided to take the plunge into yoga teaching. He believes passionately in the power of Kripalu Yoga to connect mind and body, and inspire open-heartedness and self-discovery. A DC-area resident since 1994 (with a detour to Charlottesville from 2009-15), Eric lives in Chevy Chase, MD with his wife, two teenage sons, and dog Milo. He has found that practicing yoga off the mat has been very valuable while raising teenagers!
