Erica Bornstein

Erica Bornstein is a yoga and dance teacher, choreographer, and lover of all movement. She fell in love with yoga at a very young age when she was introduced to it as a way to stay in top dancer shape, but later in life discovered it was so much more than that. As an adult, she developed a regular yoga practice, and noticed that it brought her to feel this sense of balance in her body and her mind. Other physical activity became easier, and she approached difficult situations in life with a much more open attitude. Erica found herself constantly talking to people about yoga, thinking about yoga, reading about yoga, so she decided to see what would happen if she registered for a teacher training in 2010. Erica now is a full-time yoga teacher and could not be more thrilled to be a part... Read the profile >>

Jessica Latshaw

Jessica Latshaw had no idea she loved to move until her parents forced her into a ballet class. Being only 8 years old and still living under their rules and roof, she simply had to comply and soon found herself wearing pink tights and a leotard on Saturday mornings when she'd rather be climbing trees with her brothers. She's since thanked her parents, though, and went on to graduate with honors with a BFA in dance performance from the University of the Arts and perform on stages in South Korea, Japan, Canada, and all across the US with the broadway shows Fame! the Musical (Iris), The Will Rogers Follies, and the touring company of the Broadway Revival of A Chorus Line (originating the role of Kristine), to name some. Jessica is also a singer song-writer and has performed her... Read the profile >>
