She earned an industrial design degree from the Ohio State University and has been a graphic designer in San Francisco since 2001. Studying & practicing yoga for over 10 years has been an ever-evolving way to express her truth, creativity and emotions.

During the making of her book, Art of Attention, Erica received the help that she needed to heal an addiction she had been battling for 20 years.

She is currently working on a new book Angelus, an experiential chakra workbook that goes beyond the intellectual understanding of the chakras. It presents a proven methodology of emotionally connected yoga and visually powerful art as a means to see and feel your body’s wisdom.
