Wanting to share the positive effects that Pilates had on her own life with others, Erika completed the mat Pilates and anatomy training course with Mariska Breland of Fuse Pilates in 2012, and began teaching group mat classes at the Fuse studio in Dupont Circle shortly thereafter.
Erika’s teaching style is both challenging and encouraging, and she likes to use Pilates to empower her clients to enhance their physical and mental health. Always an optimist, she believes there is always room to be happier and stronger, and she makes sure her clients get in both a good sweat and a smile during every session.
In addition to teaching Pilates, Erika works as a freelance media and marketing strategist for food, fitness, and lifestyle brands. She spends her free time dining out at restaurants, cooking, and reading, and is excited to explore all the fantastic food and fun outdoor activities her new city has to offer.
