Erika Mehiel is an RYT-500 at Five Pillars Yoga in NYC where she teaches Yoga Therapeutics and edits the studio’s Weekly Wisdom blog, full of both simple tips and hard core science on how (and why!) to live the vibrant yogic lifestyle on and off the mat. When she’s not packing for her next adventure she can usually be found “rolling around on the ground,” or walking her dog Garbo through Greenpoint.
