About

Erica Mather is a lifelong teacher.  Her life mission is to make a difference in the world, and, hopefully, in YOUR life.

Erica’s taught thousands of people, beginning at age 17.  She’s taught, and designed curriculum on:

  • Sailing
  • Windsurfing
  • Jazz History
  • Music Theory
  • Composition

In recent years, her attention turned to teaching yoga, and the many threads that spin off from this central topic.  Now Erica teaches on these interests:

  • Forrest Yoga
  • Yoga Sequencing
  • Hands on Assists
  • Managing and Healing Injury

  • Body Image Positivity

In 2009 Ana Forrest invited Erica to become part of an elite circle of teachers, The Guardians, senior teachers who are entrusted with passing along the Forrest legacy.

In 2011 Erica made her debut on the National yoga scene, with appearances at Kripalu and Wanderlust. She’s been featured in the Sunday New York Times (July 31, 2011). She also was given her own channel on The Elephant Journal, where–according to the editors–her writing has been “a runaway success.”  To date, her article “How I Came to Love My Body: Just the Way It Is” has received 24,000 views.

In 2012 she made a repeat appearance at Kripalu and continued to broaden her horizons internationally, with appearances at the Bali Spirit Festival, the first Forrest Yoga Conference “Wind Horse”, and a month-long residency at the Tembok Spa in Bali.

In 2013, she taught again at “Wind Horse,” and toured South East Asia introducing Forrest Yoga to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines.

In 2014, launched her online program “Adore Your Body” a Signature System to help overcome body image challenges, served as lead assistant for Ana Forrest’s 200 hour teacher training, co-lead her first retreat in partnership with LuxYoga, and will return to Kripalu for the fourth time, December 19-21.
