Erik Marrero Sewell
Erik Marrero, RYT, MBSR Graduate. Yoga found Erik in the Spring of 2007. As a cancer patient, he enrolled in the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, through the Myrna Brind Center for Integrative Medicine at Thomas Jefferson Hospital. Erik was suffering from the side-effects of his cancer therapies. With the first yoga practice, Erik felt great physically and very at peace. After graduating from the 8-week MBSR program, Erik continued his daily meditation practice and sought out yoga in a non-hospital environment.
Erik is a graduate of the Yogawood Yoga Teacher-Training program masterfully offered by Beth Filla and Jill Cummings. Erik strives to inspire his students to overcome obstacles, push their own limitations, move beyond the typical Hatha yoga realm, and to find mindfulness and ease-of-wellbeing with every breath, regardless of the pace, intensity, or complexity of the practice. Erik teaches Yin and Vinyasa Yoga.
