Erin Joosse began her exploration of mindfulness in high school when she experienced walking meditation in a class called “Eastern Thought.” Having a profound experience of feeling connected and whole, she began an earnest study of yoga and meditation that led her to her teaching path.
Certified to teach yoga in 2000, she began to teach full time, and began to explore yoga as a path to physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. She teaches mindful yoga, which is a yoga class which incorporates mindfulness practice and meditation. In Erin’s class, you will focus on alignment and breath, as well as awareness of your mind and emotions as you move through your yoga practice. In Mindful Yoga, each posture or each flow between postures becomes a meditation. It is a physical practice, but embodies the wholeness of your being.
In 2005, she co-founded Source Yoga in Tacoma, Washington. She is now sole owner of Source Yoga, which includes a second location in University Place, which opened in 2011.
Erin is enrolled in the UCSD Mindfulness Based Professional Training Institute as a Teacher in Training. She leads Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction at Source Yoga.
